Welcome! Whether you have visited us before, or are thinking about checking us out for the first time, we’re glad you're here! We want to give you a little bit of an overview of what a Sunday gathering looks like...

After pulling up on our campus and parking, you will be greeted by friendly faces at our entrance welcoming you to our open courtyard where dozens of people will be milling around; drinking coffee, eating food and chatting about life in general. As you walk around you will also notice a station with computers. This is where you can register your children (Newborn - 5th grade) for our Creekside KidZ program that occurs during both our main services.

As you make your way through our main doors you will be greeted again by some Creeksiders joyfully handing you one of our programs. These programs are filled with information about upcoming Creekside events as well as well as updates.

John has worked for Disney and Warner Brothers as an art director and production designer and also is an illustrator for numerous national clients. He’s worked as a concept artist for Wes Anderson on the film “Life Aquatic” and has received an Academy Award Nomination for “Redux Riding Hood”, an animated short film that he worked on as art director and lead production designer. As a painter, he has had numerous solo exhibits, as well as group shows. His work ranges from large scale installations to smaller intimate works. John has experience directing and inspiring teams of artists and finds that aspect of his work to be the most rewarding. His enthusiasm for your success will be felt the minute you walk through the door and you’ll feel that energy long after you leave.

Carol graduated with a degree in Visual Communications from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Studies included figure drawing, painting, design & composition, perspective and illustration. She was honored to be an understudy, painting egg tempera background and posing as one of the models for American Master Harold F. Edmonds. After AIP, Carol worked as a graphic designer and an art director for both an advertising agency and marketing company. Writing is another creative pursuit and she attended the creative writing workshop at Cecile Moochnek Gallery in Berkeley and has written a screenplay.
