Frequently asked questions
Can I bring my infant into service with me?
Yes, you are welcome to bring your infant into the service. The Wiggle Room (located next to the 2nd-3rd grade class room) is also available for moms who need to nurse or attend to their children. Creekside also provides a safe and clean nursery with trained childcare workers in the children's area.
Where is the offering plate? Why don't you pass it?
We have never passed an offering plate because we want people to give to the ministry of Creekside voluntarily and because they want to give (2 Corinthians 9:7). There is an offering slot in the wall of Creekside's auditorium as well as online giving for all who wish to participate.
What about the food between services? Can anyone indulge?
The food offered between services is free and everyone is invited to share in it.
Who can take communion at Creekside?
