ThornCreek believes in being involved in the local community! We are very intentional about this! Take a look at we are doing today as well as past programs. below…
Food for Hope
Childhood hunger is not simply a moral issue. Research indicates that even mild malnutrition experienced by young children during critical periods of growth impacts their behavior, school performance, and overall cognitive development.
ThornCreek Church has founded Food For Hope to unify the community in the fight against childhood hunger and give these children a chance to succeed. Each child that enrolls with the program will receive a bag full of nutritious and healthy food to take home EVERY weekend. Find out more at foodforhope.net.
Feeding of the 5000!
Each year we do a giant Thanksgiving Project in South Thornton. We partner with schools and love on them. We have provided a full carnival for them (at no charge), then we send all the families home with a full Thanksgiving meal, including a turkey! Check out the video to see our latest event.
Tornado Relief - Joplin, MO
ThornCreek Church has sent three teams to Joplin, MO. In May 2011, Joplin was hit by a series of F-5 tornadoes. The devastation was great. ThornCreek sent teams to love on this community. We assisted in relief efforts, rebuilding, prayed with people, and we fed over 700 people.
Hurricane Relief, Houston, TX
In September, 2017 ThornCreek Church responded to the hurricane disaster in Houston by partnering with American Furniture Warehouse to send two 53 foot trailers loaded with donations of furniture, appliances, and water to Houston, TX.
We also sent a team of 21 ThornCreekers to deliver the donations and to love on the people of Houston by cleaning out houses, delivering food, and praying for people.
In addition to this, we planted a new church in South Thornton! The name of this church is Hope Hacienda Church. This is a church designed for people who live in South Thornton! Please check out their website at hopehacienda.net.
In addition to this event we also do events such as:
- Helping Senior Citizens with the City of Thornton
- Snow Shoveling
- Tutoring at local schools
- Partnering with Life Choices Pregnancy Center
- School Supply Drives
- Christmas Wrapping Events
- Giving away gift cards to complete strangers!
- Blood drives
- Much more!

We have partnered with a church in Negritos, Peru, a coastal community in the westernmost part of South America. We have teamed up with Compassion International to change the lives within this community by sponsoring children to rescue them from poverty in Jesus' name. We will also be taking ThornCreekers to visit Peru regularly for infrastructure projects.
Trips to Peru
Prior to the pandemic, we sent a team to Negritos every two years. Check out a few videos from those trips.
- ThornCreek funded an $8000 project to bring more water storge to the children of Negritos. Check out how the project went here.
- ThornCreek funded a $10,000 project to update and repair the Perlas de Gran Precio Student Center. Check the out details of the project here.
