"MARRIAGE...The Journey: Standing Together
Before God"

"However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband."  Ephesians 5:33

Each year, Creekside offers a retreat at beautiful Lake Tahoe for married couples, providing a relaxed atmosphere to refresh marriages and enjoy getting to know other Christian couples.

Our gifted speaker, Dr. Gil Stieglitz, has written several books that provide a roadmap for increasing health, stability and foundations of marriages.  Gil serves as the Disciple Groups pastor at Bayside Church in Roseville, and also is an adjunct professor at Western Seminary in Sacramento.

Your Kids

From birth and up we have a special place for your kids. Check out our children's ministry page for more information.



We want to help your family connect and grow with other families. There is nowhere better to do that than life groups but we also have events planned for the entire family throughout the year.


Between marriage, finances, raising kids, and juggling everything else in life, anyone can feel overwhelmed at times. We have several resources to find the support and education to get you through those times of, "how do I do this?"
