Series: Rooted
Because we have been raised to new life with Christ (because we died with Christ), we can now change the focus of our desires. We are no longer tied to sin but are free and alive in Jesus Christ. Being raised up with Jesus Christ ought to make a difference in the way we live and in our feelings about God. It requires living with a focus. Our heart, or desires, have to be personally directed toward the things of God, otherwise our lives will spin out of control.

The most important truth in all of Christianity is stated right here: We are made alive together with Christ. Paul says "we are raised to new life." He has come to live in us, and He has joined himself to us, and we are one person with Him. That is the most important fact upon which to build all the rest of Christian faith and experience - this great, tremendous statement that we are made alive with Jesus Christ.

Series: Rooted
"Rooted and built up in Him..." are the instructions the Apostle Paul gives Christ followers in the second chapter of Colossians. In his letter he rightly makes much of Jesus, highlighting his importance for our salvation and the life that follows. In this series we will explore all the ways we are rooted in Jesus and how it should effect our daily walk. Join us for this four-part series by Discipleship Pastor Jesse Hicks as we explore what it means to be reconciled in Christ, alive in Christ, new in Christ, and guided in Christ.

This last chapter of Habakkuk is actually a song. It was a prayer that Habakkuk prayed, but it was put to music. And it was actually sung by the ancient Hebrews. Habakkuk has now moved from doubting God and debating, to defending God. Because we can wrestle with the God of our faith and still embrace the faith in our God.

Even though we know we can’t do it we all have tried at one time or another. We’ve all attempted to bargain with God to get Him to meet us on our terms. Habakkuk thought it over and he was not satisfied with God’s answer to His prayer. He is no longer doubting God, because God has spoken, but now he is debating God and basically trying to convince God He has made the wrong decision. He is still learning to trust the process.

Can God be good when life is not? A pandemic has swept our land and many find themselves sick. Many have lost loved ones. Millions have lost their jobs. When life hits hard, it plunges us into a sea of questions we hoped we'd never have to ask. But when you feel broken, abandoned, and struggling to find answers, there's a beacon in the storm. This Sunday we find out what do in those fist shaking moments of DOUBTING GOD.

Series: Easter
Most people would define love as an emotion - affection, passion, or tenderness. The Bible, however, describes love in terms of sacrificial actions. Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends”. That verse is the story of Easter. Easter Sunday is an extra special time at Creek’s End, and we want you to be a part of it.

So many times God's leading in our lives takes us to uncharted territory. This can cause fear of the unknown as we have not gone this way before. That's where we find ourselves as we face a global virus pandemic. But what is unknown to us is known to God. We don't have to worry about the future because the future is in His hands. Join us Sunday for our LIVE STREAM ONLY service as we learn what it takes to let go of our worry and anxiety and trust in God when we are in a place that is UNCHARTED.

Practice makes perfect. Those words have been drilled into musicians and athletes, and rightly so. When it comes to parenting, there are many principles we must practice to raise our children go be godly adults. But there is none better to show us than Jesus, who said “let the children come to me.” . His approach to children is perfect for us to practice in our imperfect family.

There are no perfect children and no perfect parents. But the Bible teaches us that we can come close by following a particular principle from this message. Join us as we discover the process of guiding our imperfect children toward the only perfect parent – our Heavenly Father.

It's Sunday morning and I'm on my way to church. What should I expect? What is expected of me? What should my mind be focused on? What are my thoughts about myself, my church family, and God. In As We Gather, Discipleship Pastor Jesse Hicks answers those questions and discovers what it means to be intentional every time we come together for worship.

Passage: Acts 15:1
Series: 2020 Vision
It is hard to understand why churches fight, why churches die, why people don’t go to church, why people who used to go to church quit going to church and why a lot of people who keep going to church don’t enjoy it. Nothing will kill the heart, the spirit, the mission, the passion, or the effectiveness of the church greater than fire extinguishers. There are four things a church absolutely can’t do or the fire will go out.

Passage: Acts 10:1 & Mark 1-4
Series: 2020 Vision
Interestingly enough when you study the Book of Acts every time someone was set on fire for the first time by the Holy Spirit, guess what they did? They jumped in the water. Specifically, they jumped into the water of baptism, but there is one difference. Normally, water extinguishes fire, but in this case baptismal water enhances fire.

Passage: Acts 9:1
Series: 2020 Vision
We’ve all seen it. An athlete is suddenly “on fire” and can’t miss a bucket, can’t be stopped, can’t be beaten and changes the outcome of a game. The early church had its own superstar, and man was he on fire! He even started out on the wrong team. But as we will learn, when we are on fire for God, life change happens and we discover a new purpose burning in our hearts.

Accelerants can be added as well. In the early church, a man named Barnabas was used to fuel the fire. As an encourager, he know how to build a fire under people. Today, we can learn from this early church leader how we can add fuel to the flames.
