Creek's End Family & Friends,
In the blink of an eye life can change. This week we lost one of our Creek’s End family members, Keridon McMahon, in a car accident. Chris and Keridon have been part of our church family for well over 10 years. I married them and have watched them grow in their walk with God. I’ve watched them on the mountain tops and in the valleys and their faith has been strong. Even when their youngest daughter Teagan had heart issues that required surgery they faithfully trusted God.
As a fitness model and trainer Keridon physically changed the lives of thousands of people, including my own. I will be forever grateful for her inspiring me to tackle a sprint triathlon at the age of 50 with Chris and Jesse. I didn’t think I could. She said I could. No, she said I WOULD. I did.
When she was struggling over the loss of a friend, I told her to do something that would get her mind off her grief. I told her to go to Haiti and love on some orphans. She didn’t think she could. I said she could. No, I said she WOULD. She did. The “Love Like Jesus” picture was taken on the airplane heading to Haiti.
Church family, please lift up this precious family in prayer. This kind of pain can only be comforted by the Savior Keridon loved and served. Chris, Teagan, Brielle, and Kieren need our love now like never before. A Celebration of Life will take place sometime next week. We will let you know the details when they are available.
Here is what is happening at Creek’s End…
NEW SERIES STARTS SUNDAY
The Great Commission has been and is the foundation for evangelism and cross-cultural missions work in Christian theology. Because Jesus gave final instructions for His followers to go to all nations and that He would be with them even until the very end of the age, Christians of all generations have embraced this command. As many have said, it was not "The Great Suggestion." In this opening message we find Jesus commanded his followers from every generation to put our faith into action and to go make disciples. Join us for A Great Commission this Sunday.

COMING SOON IN “THE MISSSION”
A popular children’s show has two pug puppies singing “Going on a mission, going on a mission.” An iconic TV and movie series begins with the words, “Your mission, should you choose to accept it…” Companies are driven by “mission statements”. When Jesus left this earth He left His followers with a mission. The mission of the church is the task given by God for the people of God to accomplish in the world. In this three-week series called “THE MISSION”, we will discover what that mission is, what it means, and why we should take it seriously in areas outside of our own country. Here is the remaining schedule ...
JUNE 20 – “A GLOBAL AMBITION” In spite of the global pandemic, God is moving in the country of India. One of the organizations making an impact is FAAM – the For All Mankind Movement. Since 2009, they have baptized over 65,000 believers and planted over 4000 churches. Creek’s End is honored to partner with them through giving as well as short term mission trips. Kevin Philips, the founder of FAAM, will be our guest speaker and share what God is doing now in India and in the region where we give our resources – the state of Rajasthan.
JUNE 27 – “A GOSPEL IGNITION” If “What’s the point of the Bible?” were a question on Family Feud, there’s a good chance one of the top survey responses would be “sharing the gospel.” Have you ever wondered what the gospel is? The word “gospel” means news. It is the news about who Jesus Christ is, what He has done, and how that changes everything for all of us. In this closing message we will learn why the Gospel is so important in the mission of the church.
