This Weekend

Creek's End Family & Friends,

As you read this, Dianna and I are away on a much-needed vacation. We are off to see the wonder of God’s creation on a cruise to Alaska. It is a time to rest, recharge, and have what my wife calls “face time”. In the Gospel of Mark (6:30-32), Jesus instructed his disciples to rest after a period of intense ministry. So, while Jesus had an active and demanding ministry, he also recognized the importance of rest and rejuvenation.

As we march toward the holidays, schedules are going to get busier. School activities, sports, and church events can fill the calendar fast. As they do, make sure you keep the Sabbath holy. It is considered a sacred time to disconnect from regular activities and focus on God, worship, spending time with loved ones, and to relax and renew. Hebrews 10:25 tells us, “And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” Being in God’s house on God’s Day with God’s people is a time of encouragement for our daily walk as well as a break from our usual hustle and bustle of everyday life.

I plan on enjoying my Sabbath away. Connecting with God through nature, rest, and renewal is tops on my agenda. When I return, I hope to be refreshed and ready for the march toward the holidays and what God has in store for us in the BUSY days and weeks ahead.

Here is what is happening at Creek’s End…


“I do not know Him.” Peter said. Three times. It was a moment of weakness for Peter, but it was also an important part of his journey of faith. Eventually, Peter was restored to ministry. Join us Sunday for part 3 of “RESTORED” with Discipleship Pastor Jesse Hicks at 9:30 & 11:00 AM.


Children Ages 3 years to 5th Grade can still be a part of AWANA. They meet on Wednesdays at 6:30 – 8:00 PM. Awana is led by Ray & Kathy McNulty and supported by our Little Creek and Creek Kids Ministries. The cost for materials for the year is $50. You can sign up your child and pay online at


Our new studies have begun but you can still participate. The men will be studying the book Tactics, which provides an easy-to-follow, well-reasoned plan for mastering the art of maneuvering in conversations about Christian spirituality and ethics. Women will be doing Acts: Awakening to God in Everyday Life. This six-session study for women invites you to a spiritual awakening to the power of God’s Spirit and experience His freedom, grace, and direction every day. Books are optional and cost $15.

A Christian’s life should be living proof of their connection to the Father. Essentially, our sacrificial love for others is a testament of our sacrificial love for God. In his first epistle—which forms the basis for this series—the apostle John walks through several aspects of the Christian life, revealing where the evidence lies for each. In this six-week series we will examine different claims made within the church, and ask for the evidence to prove that it’s true. “PROVE IT” begins October 8th.


Join our Life Groups as they come together for a fun night of Trivia Competition. It’s on Friday October 13th, at 7:00 PM on the Creek’s End Campus. This is a great opportunity to check out a Life Group and be a part of the fun and fellowship.
