What To Expect
The Blackberry Campus was established in 2007.
Blackberry Creek's services are held Sunday morning at 9:10 & 11:10am. Our KidsWorld Ministry is available during our weekend services; parents can drop off their children for a fun and Bible based teaching designed specially for them. Students can engage with other students before and after the message, as well as learn more about how to get involved in our Student Ministry during the week.
Visit our Cup O' Joy Cafe for a cup of coffee and then head into our auditorium for an 80 minute service consisting of contemporary worship and Bible based teaching by our Senior Pastor Jim Nicodem, Teaching Pastor Clayton Keenon, or a guest teacher, via video from our St. Charles Campus.
We hope you'll join us this Sunday for one of our services. We can't wait to meet you!
