How should I dress?
Come as you are. We hope you will find a comfortable environment where you can be yourself. No matter if you are in jeans or business casual you will find people dressed like you at Deer Creek. Take a look around. There are married couples, singles, young people, older people, professionals, laborers, stay-at-home moms. Each has a unique life story, just like you do. You are invited to stop by the Coffee Corner and have some coffee on us. Check things out on your terms.
What will be expected of me?
Feel free to be as anonymous as you want and visit as often as you like. We hope you will attend more than once so you can get a feel for Deer Creek. As our guest the only request we have is that when you are comfortable with doing so we ask you to fill out a communication card that is in the Worship Folder. This will provide us with a record of you visiting with us and add you to our mailing list. It will also provide you with a way to communicate to our staff if there are any needs in your life. Our staff prays for the requests on the cards each Monday morning. If you have a spiritual decision that you are making as a result of worship service we would be glad to speak with you about that as well.
What are the services like?
Our services usually last around 65 minutes. The service begins with a contemporary worship service including a variety of instruments on stage including guitar, drums, piano, trumpet or flute. Sing if you like. On most weekends the teaching is done by Pastor Randy Roberts or our Youth Pastor Josh Rutledge. Our goal is to provide Bible based, relevant messages that apply to your everyday life. Sometimes we use a video or a drama in the service when it will help us connect with the message. In each weekend service we offer a time of reflection during a communion service. If you are a believer in Christ we invite you to share in that with us. If you don’t want to participate that is fine also.
What about my kids?
For children ages birth to 5th grade we have Kidz Creek, our Children’s Ministry. Mickey Grubermann and his staff have an automated check-in system. This ensures your children are safe, secure and accounted for. They want this to be the best hour of their week! While you enjoy a worship service designed for you, your children will enjoy an experience designed just for them. Just step up to the Kidz Creek welcome center for easy check in.
Middle School Ministry - They’ll be with you for the weekend worship service. The students get together on Tuesday nights during the school year. There’s live music, games and teaching geared to the middle school mind. They learn a lot and have a lot of fun doing it.
High School Ministry - will attend the weekend worship service with you. But then they get together on Tuesday nights during the school year. They will experience music, worship, teaching that targets their world, and friends.
