There may not be a concrete truck in the parking lot (yet), but there is lots going on with the Growing Roots campaign. The project’s pledged three-year total is now $1,740,000, and we’ve already collected $367,533. As you know, the project scope includes a 9000 sf Ministry Center just west of the sanctuary.
We’re pleased to report the Building Committee has chosen Nelson Morgan to serve as architect. In about ten weeks, we expect complete drawings and specs we’ll be able to use for construction bidding.
With this addition to our facilities, we’re anticipating the freeing up of six group meeting spaces currently tied up in the Worship Center. Additionally, the new Ministry Center will enable the gathering of a large Sunday school class (i.e. 100-150 member class) as well as other large confluences. The facility will expand Creekwood’s Sunday morning Children’s Ministry capabilities and will open up too many new VBS opportunities to list. It will enable us to offer additional programming and expand the scope of our Special Needs Ministry.
As part of the project, with the children transitioned to the Ministry Center, future plans include renovating the current Children’s Center to provide Creekwood and community youth with a safe, fun place to study, learn, worship and fellowship.
You might have the same question we have, “How soon can you start???” Well, we’re currently projecting groundbreaking to take place this fall.
We invite you to join us in prayer for the faithful volunteers working to take this project to the next stage, and for the professionals crafting the plans for facilities to enable us to continue to do God’s work.

which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers. Psalm 1:3
Dear Church Family,
“Growing Roots” is the title chosen for our campaign to be in ministry and mission through the church in these exciting days ahead. We are blessed to be part of this church at this time and have the invitation from God to do something truly lasting and memorable for Creekwood Church and the community God has called us to lead and love.
Many seeds have been planted over the last 14 years, and it is time for all of us together to grow even deeper in our trust of and commitment to God. My hope is that you will remember your own spiritual roots, which I hope are still growing deeper towards the living water of Jesus Christ. I hope you will remember the churches that invested in you and taught you God’s love, no matter at what age you first experienced it. And we hope you will use this simple prayer “Lord, what do you want to do through me?” to pray about what God’s will is for you to invest for the future through this exciting campaign. If everyone in our church will start to pray about God’s will then something extraordinary will certainly happen.
