Creek's End Family & Friends,
For quite some time now we have been praying for the right person to come and lead our Student Ministry. After months of prayer and discussions with the Ministry Team and the Advisory Team, we believe we have found that person. And you will get to meet him this Sunday.
Beginning January 1, Andrew Pearce will be our new full time Student Pastor. He and his wife Meaghan will be joining us this Sunday as we introduce them to our church family. Andrew has interned with us on two occasions, so our students are very familiar with him. Earlier this year Andrew and Meaghan were married and began earnestly praying for where they should serve. They believe God is calling them to serve at Creek’s End, and we couldn’t agree more.
Andrew is a graduate of William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi with a degree is Communications. His parents are long time missionaries in the Czech Republic with the International Mission Board. Meaghan will graduate in December from Louisiana State University in Shreveport with a degree in Education. She plans to begin teaching elementary school soon. Meaghan’s dad served as a Student Pastor in churches for over 20 years.
You will get to meet them this Sunday in our services and I know you will make them welcome. Begin now to pray for their transition from Shreveport to here as they find a place to live and be settled in by the end of the year. His first Sunday will be January 1, and you will hear from him personally as he begins his ministry here.
Here is what is happening at Creek’s End…
"FOLLOW" SERIES CONCLUDES
Most of us don't become Christians with the intent of following Jesus. We become Christians because we were told obedience pays and disobedience doesn't. We become Christians hoping that spirituality will fill a hole in our souls. We become Christians hoping God will fix us or fix someone we know. Eventually, our agendas clash with Jesus' agenda and we have to decide whether we'll abandon Him or follow. This series ends with WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME? at 9:30 & 11:00 AM.
There will be no Wednesday activities
this week and the church offices
will be closed Wednesday – Friday.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
CHRISTMAS ANGEL TREE
PARENTS' NIGHT OUT
What do you really need from God right now? What blessing do you want from him? How badly do you want it? There are times when God only releases his blessings on us after a season of prolonged and even painful wrestling with him. On the Sunday after Thanksgiving, Discipleship Pastor Jesse Hicks will be back with a special message Wrestling For The Blessing. We will have Family Worship both hours, with only Little Creek open. Life Groups will be off until the new year.

You’re not alone. God is with us in every moment. His name is Immanuel. He’s with us through the pain. He comforts us in the waiting. He gives us courage when we feel anxious.

CHRISTMAS AT CREEK’S END
Christmas involves so many great traditions - decorations, gift giving, family celebrations. In the midst of your holiday preparations, take time to reflect on the true joy this season brings. It began that first Christmas, when God sent his Son to free us from our past and offer us hope for our future. Join us and bring your family and friends to one of our Christmas Eve services to enjoy candlelight, carols, and communion. Service times are 3:00 and 4:30 PM. INVITATIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON. Take them and invite someone to join us. Come and celebrate Christmas at Creek’s End!
