As you have no doubt heard, we will not host worship gatherings or activities at the building for the next several weeks. We made this decision to do our part in fighting the spread of COVID‑19.

What does this mean? Congrats! Your Small Group is now your House Church. Now, more than ever, you have the opportunity to care for one another through prayer, phone calls, video chat, etc. We believe God is giving us a unique opportunity to experience a taste of what the first Christians enjoyed by meeting house-to-house…and online.

Weekly Worship Online

Join us at 10:45AM on Sunday for worship, teaching and communion by visiting clearcreek.churchonline.org or our YouTube channel.
Join us for an online prayer Wednesdays at 12 noon EST on Facebook and Instagram Live.
