50 Years of Celebrating Christ at the Creek

We had a great weekend Celebrating Christ at the Creek. It was our 50th Anniversary and we had a full and exciting weekend. Saturday morning began with a Men’s Prayer Breakfast with former minister Ron Collins as the speaker. Later, there was a Brunch for the ladies with Jean Anne Collins speaking. On Saturday afternoon we had games for the kids, a hog roast and plenty of time to fellowship. That was followed by a worship service with Ron Collins preaching. The teens had their own service, led by the Pulse Praise Band, and former youth minister Tony Brackenmyre speaking. And the evening ended with pie & ice cream.

On Sunday, we had a combined Adult Bible Fellowship time with long-time members reminiscing and telling stories about the early days of the church. Then we had a combined worship service (which we do a few times a year). But the atmosphere was electric as people sang and prayed and listened to the Word. It seemed like folks didn’t want the service to end.

Sunday night brought Ray Tolbert (former Indiana University basketball star) to Cedar Creek. Ray gave his testimony, and afterwards spent time with the young people (signing autographs and sharing with them).

We’re exhausted, but praising God for a fantastic celebration.

That is awesome.
My home congregation is celebrating 50 years this year.
Pretty awesome to think how small they were when they began and the faith and growth that God has carried them to over the 50 years. How wonderful. I celebrate with you.
