ReachOut is an exciting journey that has been carved out for the Creekside Church. In 2012, we began an effort to unify our time, talents, and resources to ReachOut to our community and the world.
Since 2012, Creekside has continued to grow as a ReachOut church. We celebrate the great strides we have seen since this financial commitment has been made. Over the first three years we have seen a dramatic increase in our giving both individually and collectively as a faith community. Most importantly, we have become a church that is financially, spiritually, and physcially driven to ReachOut to each other, our community, and the world. ReachOut is a prioritization for living with a focus on the eternal and not the earthly.
Set Free Ministry and our New Life Behavior program exist to ReachOut to men and women throughout Texas in prison. We currently have well over 100 students and are in need of more study mates. We are excited to announce that New Life Behavior has expanded beyond the Texas prison system. This means that we need more studymates. To get involved in this ministry contact Larry or Bobby Rigsby.
Janet Holland began with a vision in 2013 to develop a cancer support group for survivors, family members, and others effected by this disease. Creekside's support group meets on the first Wednesday of the month at Creekside. Creekside Cancer Crushers is our Relay for Life Team. They raised over $4,500 in June to help Finish the Fight against this disease. We are also planning to be a part of an upcoming Ovarian Cancer walk. If you would like to get involved see Janet Holland.
