We believe our world is in desperate need of a church that makes relationships and reconciliation not just a priority, but a way of life. Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church is therefore called to:
- Seek what God wants to do in and through us
- Affirm the value of every person without exception
- Respond compassionately to the needs of our neighbors
- Grow in our understanding of who God is in Jesus Christ
- Walk side by side rather than go head to head, pushing beyond boundaries that divide
- Pray together, Play together, Serve together
Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church exists to engage in authentic relationships around an open table, where there is a place for all.
Join us on this mission.
Presbyterians believe in:
- The sovereignty of God
- The authority of Scripture
- Justification by grace through faith
- The priesthood of all believers
What these statements mean is that God is the supreme authority throughout the universe. Our knowledge of God and God's purpose for humanity comes from the Bible, particularly what is revealed in the New Testament through the life of Jesus Christ. Our salvation (justification) is God's generous gift to us and not the result of our own accomplishments. It is everyone’s job, ministers and lay people alike, to share this Good News with the whole world (priesthood of all believers).
Presbyterians have an official mission statement, known as the Great Ends of the Church. They are:
- The proclamation of the gospel for the salvation of humankind
- The shelter, nurture, and spiritual fellowship of the children of God
- The maintenance of divine worship
- The preservation of the truth
- The promotion of social righteousness
- The exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world
Presbyterians are distinctive in two major ways, adhering to:
- A pattern of religious thought known as Reformed theology
- A form of government that stresses the active, representational leadership of both ministers and church members.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Below are some questions that you might be asking.
What do I wear?
The main thing to remember is to be comfortable. You will find people wearing anything from jeans and pants to dresses and suits.
What is your service like?
We currently have one service, designed to help you experience the presence of the living God. It is a blend of contemporary and traditional, with music led by our worship team as well as music from our choirs and organ.
Where do my kids go?
We have all kinds of vibrant learning activities for children. During worship, right before Passing of the Peace, we will announce that it is time for Kids Worship. Children, ages four through fifth grade, are invited to join Ms. Emily, Director of Children's Ministries, and Ms. Sarah, Director of Children's Music, on the first floor for worshipful songs, age-appropriate dives into the meaning of scripture, fun games, and opportunities for fellowship. There is no Kids Worship on the first Sunday of every month so that children have a chance to experience main worship and Communion with their church family.
What about nursery care?
We provide skilled nursery care for all Sunday morning activities. Just ask for the nursery when you walk in and are met by one of our hospitable greeters.
