At Clear Creek, our passion is helping "spiritual orphans" find a home - not just fitting in with us, but getting to know God as a good Father. We expect people who stick around to want to grow spiritually - to become more and more like God. We can't give you enough information to make that happen; it is the result of deliberate steps you decide to take. We have identified four significant mileposts on the path to spiritual formation at Clear Creek, and believe true growth will not happen if any of the four is left out. Briefly, those markers are:
Worship: Deliberately set apart time to acknowledge that there is a God, and we're not Him!
Serve: To paraphrase Spiderman's Uncle Ben, with great blessing comes great responsibility. Use what you have been given for the benefit of others.
Connect: We aren't supposed to do life - or faith - alone. You have a perspective someone needs to hear, and someone has something to share that will bless your life. Don't go it alone.
Invest: Where your treasure is, Jesus said, your heart will be. Take ownership of the ministry by surrendering some of what you have - time, energy, money, love - for the good of the church.
Where you start is reflective of your journey, and even of your personality. Serving is your thing? Great! Serve! But don't stay there - take someone else along. Worship fills you up? Super! Find a way to pour out the overflow to bless others. If you truly want to be closer to God next year than you are this year, be intentional: find a way to do all four, and see what God does in your life!
