Available opportunities are:

Adult Small Group Leaders: Guide a community to connect with God and with each other, facilitate gatherings for your group and work to create a safe environment where relationships can be fostered and discipleship can take place.

Small Group Leader for 7th and 8th grade boys: Youth SGLs are the relational and discipling driving force of the ministry; walk with students week after week coaching them through Biblical application and mentoring them through life’s challenges.

Pre-k Teachers for three year olds and for four year olds: Have fun sharing Jesus with eager learners via ready-made lessons. Be part of a team that’s helping to shape disciples starting at an early age.

Elementary Small Group Leader for 3rd-5th Grades: Invest in the lives of children as you and other leaders share everyday life applications of the Bible’s teaching through serving and discussions.

We express our sympathy to the family of Alice Harris, who passed away July 2. 

It is with sympathy we announce Errol Aklin Crutcher, a long time guest at Clear Creek, passed away July 4. There will be no service at his request. 

Pray for the one person or one family you would like to get connected to God. Find opportunities to invite your friends, neighbors and coworkers to a safe environment in our building or to an outside activity.
