News & Events

Church Camping

The date and location are set. This year we are heading west to Maumee Bay State Park near Toledo August 3-5. If you would like to join us you can reserve your site here or see Lisa Gerren or Katie Burdett after church next week. We are looking to stay within sites 112-118 and 76-82 so we can all be together. If you do get a site, please let Lisa or Katie know.


In August we’ll be taking a break from first hour (9:15) classes and doing our traditional immersion into God and the Movies. If you’ve seen a popular movie that you think would be worthy of watching and discussion, you can nominate that movie by letting Pastor Dave know.


If you’d like to be baptized as an adult, or if you’d like your kids to be baptized, we’ll be doing that at our September Anniversary Picnic. Now is the time to talk it over with your kids or ask questions of Pastor Dave. If you’d like to participate in the baptism of your child, that’s possible too.

This Week in the Word – 2 John

This week we hear from one of those tiny 1 chapter books. In many ways it’s a condensed version of 1 John. We also see how much truth is highlighted, along with love. Love without truth becomes mere flattery. Truth without love is judgement. So in Christ love and truth are joined perfectly. When the full truth is known, love becomes deeper and richer because it’s a love that includes grace for flaws and failures!

Donate Online

If you wish to donate to the ministry at Tinkers Creek, click the button below. This is a secure transaction and will be processed the same way we receive donations in person.  As always, giving at Tinkers Creek is received anonymously so that it remains a matter between you and God.  We use an outside bookeeper to record giving so that no one inside the church knows what is given.

Looking Ahead

Pick up a reading card at the information table to stick in your Bible. Take a few minutes each day to read along and ask God to help you be open to his voice and alert to what perplexes or provokes you. For the next 3 weeks we’ll be in the Song of Songs, part of the Wisdom Section of the Old Testament. It wouldn’t hurt to start reading ahead in your own Bible reading, and then try an ABF to discuss with others.


Places to Serve at Tinkers Creek

If you’re new to our church and are looking for ways to plug in, start by attending an Adult Bible Fellowship during the 9am hour, or by serving others in the body with your gifts and experience.

ABFs @ 9:15 am

Each Sunday we offer an adult Bible discussion group starting at 9:15. This time is dedicated to studying God's word in a more intimate setting. We look to use that personal application in our everyday lives to glorify God and love others.

YAC (Youth After Church)

YAC is now on summer break. 

Pittsburgh Project

Our kids had a great week together serving Mary Thomas in Pittsburgh. Mary is a single lady whose house had a fire 8 years ago. Since then she’s been trying to get the house rebuilt, but has had multiple problems with insurance and a dishonest contractor who took a lot of money without doing the work. We really got to sense a little of her plight.

James says that true religion before God is to care about the widow and the orphan in their distress. Mary is that kind of person. You would have been proud to see how our kids gave of themselves and went outside their comfort zones for her benefit!
