What To Expect
When you visit Richland Creek Community Church, you should expect:
- to hear the good news that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who died on the cross, in your place, to save you from the consequences of your sin, and that by belief in His name you may be reconciled to God and have life everlasting
- to be warmly welcomed and loved no matter who you are, where you are from, or what you are wearing
- to hear about how you can plug into the life at the Creek, including small groups, discipleship opportunities, and special events
First time at the Creek
Click here for directions. When you arrive, turn on your flashers so our parking attendants know that you are a visitor. We have special parking designated for guests right in front, so please take advantage of that opportunity.
When you come in the front door, expect to be welcomed with a smile. A member of our greeter team will help you get acclimated with the church (and help you grab a free cup of coffee). If you have children, a tour guide will show to our preschool and elementary ministry areas. We'll also give you a free gift for being our guest.
If you would like to attend a Sunday School small group, the tour guide will tell you about available options and show you to your room. If you plan on attending worship, the tour guide will take you back to the main foyer, which leads to the worship center.
Worship at the Creek
Richland Creek makes no apologies for our worship services being for Jesus and about Jesus. Though musical styles are different for our different service times, the goal is the same: to worship Jesus and make much of Him, not ourselves.
The preaching ministry of our senior pastor David Sims, is simple: we walk word by word and line by line through the Bible, understanding it as God's final revelation to us and the authoritative source of teaching for every inch of our lives. We believe nothing is more relevant than the Word of God. If you would like hear some samples of Pastor David's preaching, check it out here.
During the worship service, you will be encouraged to register your attendance with us if you have not already. Why? We want to get to know you, to hear your concerns and prayer requests so that we can minister to you effectively. We will never give away or sell your private information, and we have no interest in pestering you - though we would love to visit you in your home and answer any questions you may have about the Creek.
After Your First Visit
After you have visited the Creek for the first time, you should expect to get a phone call and a card from us within a few days. We genuinely care about your experience at the Creek, and want to know how we can serve you better. Additionally, we would like to send some members of our church to your home to talk with you more about your interest in the church. If at any time you feel uncomfortable with these contacts, please let us know.
We really want your experience at Richland Creek to be a positive one, not because we want you to think much of us, but because we want you to think much of Jesus Christ. Our purpose is making him known. If we can serve you in any way, please contact us.
