Worship Experience

engaging, high energy.

Each worship service is designed to convey the entire truth of the Gospel. We celebrate each week that God loves us enough that He's rescued us from the pain and punishment of our sin. Our worship songs and experiences reflect that celebration.


Here's a playlist of the more frequent songs you'll hear in our services.

What to Expect

Choose any of the three entrances

The South Entrance is closest to the Worship Center.

The East Entrance is where you’ll find the Chapel and the GO! Café.

The North Entrance is for families who will be taking children to kidustrial park. 

Information Centers

Stop at one of the Information Centers if you have any questions and to pick up a gift if it’s your first time with us.


During the worship service

  • We have a full band leading us in worship.
  • We preach directly from the Bible each week.
  • We finish the teaching time with a time to respond.
    • At this time, you can take communion at one of the stations around the room, you can give to our Generous Bucket, and you can visit The Porch for prayer or to talk about a decision to follow Jesus.

Sometimes, finding your place in a large church like The Creek can be a little intimidating.

At Welcome To The Creek, you’ll learn who The Creek is, get to know some of our staff and leaders, and learn about our different ministry areas—all in just a little over an hour.

What should I wear?
Whatever makes you comfortable. Most people wear jeans, some wear suits or dresses. 

Do you believe in baptism?
Yes. We believe baptism by immersion is scripture based and is the God-ordained method for starting a personal relationship with Christ.

Do you take communion?
Yes. We take communion every week, but we do not believe that one must take communion every week – it is our choice. We choose to partake of the Lord's Supper on a weekly basis to be constantly brought back to Christ as the center of our faith.

Do you have a traditional service?
No. All of our services are identical and considered contemporary.

Is there someplace I can talk with someone to learn more about The Creek?
Yes. Stop by one of our three Information Centers (located outside the Worship Center and in East Hall) and our Guest Services team would love to help you out. We also offer a monthly membership class.

Do you teach from the Bible?
Yes. We are a Bible-centered church, and our foundation as a church is rooted in scripture.

Can my children attend church with me?
Absolutely. We also encourage parents to utilize our incredible NextGen Ministry. We have programming for children birth through fifth grade during each service and for middle and high school on Sunday evenings. We have some of the best volunteers ready to love on your children.
