UPCOMING EVENTS
2023 Sunday Schedule:  We began our new worship times and schedule on January 8, 2023! If you have any questions, please contact the church office.
  • Our first worship at 9:00-10:00am will be acapella.
  • During our Bible class time at 10:15-11:00am, there will be class offerings for all children, youth and adults.
  • Our instrumental worship service will be 11:15-12:15.  
  • Nursery and Wee Worship for our preschool age children will be offered at both worship times.
  • Café will be open 8:30-11:15am.

Adult Sunday Morning Bible Classes. Join a Bible study class on Sunday at 10:15am. All of our Bible classes focus on: Reflecting On Scripture (studying in a way that leads to application and transformation), Service (providing opportunities to serve both on Sunday morning and during the week), and Connection (fostering relationships that can be deepened through small groups).

  • ESL Study Team
    • A place to serve any individual who is not a native English speaker by using the Bible to increase their English proficiency.
      Thomas & Callie Mitchell/Room A2

  • Jesus's Approach to Facing Life's Challenges 
    Preschool Families (Parents and Grandparents) Bible Class
    • What does Jesus say about the challenges we face in life? Things like worry, failure, and temptation feel all too commonplace in our culture.  Through the love, power, and wisdom of Jesus, join us as we tackle how to overcome life’s most common…and often most difficult…challenges by becoming more like Him.
      Taylor Blaylock, Anthony Sides, and Zack Dolberry/Room A3

  • The Ten Commandments: A New Look at an Old List 
    Multi-Generational Bible Class
    • What do you see when you look at the Ten Commandments? A list of things to do or not do? A restrictive view of what God expects of us? How about an expectation that cannot be met? Actually these Ten are none of that. Come find out what God is really telling us - about Him and about us!
      George Taylor/Room A4

  • Jesus's Farewell Message
    Multi-Generational Bible Class
    • Do you know Jesus? If it is our goal to become more and more like the Son of God, it’s important to not just know who He is but develop a relationship with Him.  The night before He was crucified, Jesus invited his disciples into a deeper relationship with Him—an invitation that still extends to us even today.  And through that invitation, He’ll remind us we aren’t called to a part-time faith—we were made to know, walk with, and commune with God.
      Evan Aldridge, Nick Hughes, and Roy Ramsey/Room A5/A7

  • Encouragement Team
    • Activate others into our mission to reach the next person for Jesus by training them on how to connect with those in our community who do not yet know Jesus through notes, cards, and text messages.
      Tara Ballou/Room A6

  • Growth Track
    • A four-week class focused on bringing understanding and clarity of our mission to reach the next person for Jesus.
      Albert & Mandy Coley\Room A8

Current Sunday Adult Engagement Options at 10:15am. Visit clearcreekcoc.org/sunday-engagement for more information.

Feb. 5:  Family Celebration and Lunch: Join us for a Family Celebration on Sunday, Feb. 5, during class time at 10:15 in the Worship Center.  We will hear from our elders and celebrate how God is blessing our church family.   Stay after worship for lunch together (pulled pork, mac n cheese,  green beans, and dessert). For those who go to first worship, you can eat after the family meeting at 11:15am in the gym. For those going to second worship, you can eat immediately following worship. Make plans to come and celebrate what God did at Clear Creek in 2022!

For additional information, please click links for Children, Youth, and Upcoming Activities.

Get Connected. Taking your next step to become more like Jesus is best done with others who are on the same journey. If you don't have a dedicated group of people to walk alongside with you, we will help you find a group
