We have five core values that are the foundation for what our purpose is at Silver Creek Family Church. 

They are the baseline of what we strive to accomplish for Christ.

  • Invite

    Reaching out to others, calling everyone in. Our hope is to continue growing by never failing to invite others to share in the hope, peace and purpose of life we have found through Jesus Christ. 

  • Connect

    At Silver Creek Family we want to focus on building relationships.   Whether within our church community, our local community or extending far beyond into our world, this is a key part of who we are. 

  • Train

    We set out to lead people into a growing relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. We are committed to training all people regardless of what stage they are at in their walk with Jesus Christ. Each ministry is designed to teach, mentor, and disciple all who come to Silver Creek Family Church. 

  • Serve

    We strive to serve God in all that we do at Silver Creek Family, but we also feel that you have a God-designed place to serve as well. There are many ways one can experience serving at our church. From helping with the providing meals to families in need, to being a Children's Coach, to helping organize office space - there is a place for you. Our goal is to help you recognize where you're gifted and find fulfillment in serving God.

  • Worship

    We want to be sure that everyone who comes to Silver Creek will experience God. Whether it's through Sunday worship, connect groups, or various ministries, we provide many opportunities for those who are seeking to experience God.
