10/13 ANGLER’S WORKSHOP: EQUIPPING US TO BE FISHERS OF MEN

Join us on Sunday, October 13, from 12:15-1:45PM at Creekside for some hands-on evangelism training. We’ll explore why we share the Good News, where we share it, and what we share. We’ll present practical tools for engaging others and transitioning to spiritual conversations. We will discover a few different ways to present the essence of the gospel, how to invite people to trust Christ as Savior, how they can be assured of their conversion, and some next steps to take in their new life in Christ. We’ll also be serving a light lunch. Hope you can make it!

10/16 WEDNESDAY COFFEE & ENCOURAGEMENT

Creekside women, on October 16th we will meet at Freedom Blend Coffee, 2329 Hickman Road in Des Moines. We look forward to sharing how the Lord is encouraging you to grow through His word and how you are seeing Him at work. For those who can stay a little longer, Bob Short will be showing us around the facility. Women of all ages are invited to an informal 2 hour coffee and fellowship time. Conversing about an area of growth or reviewing some insights from God’s word or from a Christian book are all ways to mutually encourage one another. Some time in prayer ends out the morning. Not comfortable sharing? Come anyway and get to know some gals in a more casual setting (which is typically a home or coffee shop). Meeting time is 9:15-11:15 AM and is usually on the third Wednesdays of each month. Need more information? Please contact Marla Smith and Debbie Short.

10/20 CONCERT OF PRAYER

In Colossians 4:2, Paul commands the church to “Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of Thanksgiving.” At Creekside we want to do more than give lip service to the importance of prayer, so we are inviting our church family to gather just to pray. On Sunday, October 20th, from 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. we will be praying together for our own hearts to be tender towards God, for the needs of others, and for God to use us to reach the lost. Please join us in making prayer a priority in our church family.

We had a great time grilling, playing games, serving popcorn and snowcones, and taking in the Urbandale fireworks show on July 4th at Creekside. Check the gallery for photos.
