Welcome to Creekside Life!

This magazine has been a long time coming, and we are so very happy to be able to bring it to you.

It all started last fall when our Executive Pastor and our Communications Director met and began to dream. We needed to find a more concise way to share the information that can and does impact the lives of people at Creekside and in the community. Not only did we want to share information, but every day we hear stories of people are connecting, growing, serving and reaching, and we wanted to find a way to let people know that God is on the move and to make a way for them to  experience the hope and inspiration that we were experiencing.

So after a trip to Texas to visit a church who produces a monthly magazine for the 40,000 people who attend their church and for the thousands in their community, and after a lot of thought and a lot of prayer (“Are you SURE Lord? Are we ready for this?”), and as several highly specialized volunteers came forward wanting to join the team, Creekside Life was born.

Our team, comprised of both staff and volunteers, has worked hard to bring you something special. More than a “what’s happening” in our ministries (although it is that), Creekside Life tells the stories of Jesus’ activity in the lives of people in our church, in the community and through Creekside around the world.  Creekside Life is your one-stop source for behind-the-scenes stories and inside scoop on the ministries, people and events of Creekside. Filled with pictures and engaging articles, Ii’s more than a magazine… it’s a connection to the heartbeat of Creekside Christian Church.

We will begin by publishing quarterly, releasing future editions in November, February, May, and so on. Eventually we hope to see Creekside Life becoming a monthly publication, but it will take more than our existing team to make that happen. So if you have experience in writing, photography, graphic or artistic design, proof-reading or editing, do us a favor and be sure to read page 25. We’d love to have a large team of people, all ages, all stages, who are All-In and using the gifts God gave them to help with Creekside Life.

Find a comfy chair, grab a coffee from Higher Grounds or to your favorite reading space and dig into life at Creekside. Be inspired... be informed.

- The Team at Creekside Life

We desire to create a team of volunteers who work with our Communications Team, both with Creekside Life, and also in our day-to-day work.

We have some specific roles that we could use help in now; Proofers, Copywriters, Editors, Graphic Designers, and Story Hunters.


  • Excellent verbal, written, and visual communication skills.
  • Time-management mojo and the ability to multi-task
  • A strong voice of clarity and simplicity in design, messaging and way-finding
  • Frequent and consistent email availability

Maybe you're interested because you do one or more of the listed roles. This might help seal the deal:

  • You enjoy working with "creatives" who like brainstorming, rock music, and dark and moody environments. (Oh and chocolate... don't forget about chocolate)
  • You have finding-typos and word-count-slashing on your list of hobbies.
  • You have distaste for micromanaging and thrive in a self-starter/self-motivated environment.

If anything we've shared appeals to you, please contact Marci in the Communications Office.
