News & Events


In August we’ll be taking a break from first hour (9:15) classes and doing our traditional immersion into God and the Movies. Here is the schedule:.

August 19 - The Last Jedi
August 26 - Wonder
Sept. 2 - Wrinkle In Time




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.

International Student Friendships

If you’d like to explore becoming a friendship family with an international student at KSU, there are two information/orientation sessions coming up at Christ Community Church in Hudson. One is this Tuesday the 14th at 7pm , and also on the 21st in Room 11. Talk to Seth Myers for more information. This is not hosting a student in your home as lodging, but simply inviting the person to experience a little bit of your American life together. This can be a very rewarding experience for you and the student.

This Week in the Word – Cinematheology Week Three: Star Wars - The Last Jedi

This 8th movie in the Star Wars franchise tells the story of good and evil at war within the hearts of all the characters: the “good” ones like Luke, and the “bad” ones like Kylo. What to do in the face of failure seems to be a key theme, not too far off from the other two movies we’ve seen this year.

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.

Loving God, Loving Others

The following document has a listing of verses that summarize what the Bible has to say about our call to love God and others. There are 183 references to love here. This does not even take into account all the references to God’s love for us (except in some cases where his love and our love are included the same verse). If all the verses about God’s love toward us were included, the list would be at least twice as long. This is just the other half of the equation: our response to God’s love.

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!
