This decision was primarily made for two reasons. (1)Theologically, our ministry philosophy has shifted over the past several years. Through prayer, we have discerned that The Creek is no longer called to facilitate an ongoing satellite church location. And our Shelby Street campus has not demonstrated the sustained ministry momentum necessary to thrive as an independent church. (2) Practically, and due specifically to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are notable trends in attendance, engagement, and financial giving taking place across the country. We believe coming together is the greatest and most sustainable opportunity for 100% involvement in what’s to come.
