SUNDAY SERVICES AT CREEKSIDE

While many choose to worship with us at home on Sundays via our live stream, we have re-introduced our Sunday services (REMEMBER at 9:15 and CONNECT at 10:30) with guidelines and social distancing for those wanting to attend in person in light of COVID-19. We also offer Sunday school and a nursery zone with safety and sanitization guidelines (see below). Some small group Bible studies and events are meeting in-person with precautions, while others have been postponed or are meeting online. Our mid-week youth programs (Awana and teen youth groups) will look a bit different when they start up again in the Fall, so look for updates. Thank you for your patience and your faithfulness!

SUNDAY SCHOOL AND NURSERY

Children 3 years old to 1st grade will meet in the main preschool classroom. Each child will receive their own box of crayons, scissors, glue stick and pencils. Chairs will be set up for circle time, so each child has their own socially distanced spot. Hand sanitizer will be available as well. Please make sure your children are fed and have used the bathroom before coming into the Sunday school room. Plan on dropping these children off before the service begins and they can be picked up when the service finishes. If you’d prefer to meet your child outside, please let the Sunday School teacher know.

Children 2nd grade to 5th grade will meet in the upstairs youth room. Hand sanitizer will be ready for use and they will be spaced apart accordingly in the large room. These children need to start their morning in the worship service with their parents until dismissed. After class, they will be dismissed back to their parents during communion.

12/120 A FEARLESS CHRISTMAS

“Do not be afraid” was the angels’ repeated message to those expecting the birth of the Savior. This year’s Christmas program will encourage us to trade fear for hope, joy, love and peace this Advent season. We’ll also be giving Creekside kids the opportunity to bring their gifts to Jesus through song, scripture memorization, dance, dramatic reading, art, decorations, lighting, welcoming people—or any other gift God has given them. Starting October 25th at Creekside, you can sign up for a spot in the program, which will be during our 10:30 Connect service on Sunday, December 20th. See Debbie Short with any questions!.

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.
