welcome to greater

When I look back to my first Sunday gathering with Sycamore Creek Church in 2011, I could have never anticipated the incredible journey God would allow us to experience in the last 7 years. Reflecting back from that small group that met in 1996 to start this dynamic church to now experiencing a crowd of 600 people weekly, we realize that the audacity to dream big for God’s glory has always been one of the hallmarks of this church. For over 22 years, Sycamore Creek Church has been reaching people far from Christ and helping them take the next steps in their faith journey. The results of that faith have been overwhelming, exciting, and humbling. 


We celebrate the thousands of changed lives – the people who have accepted Jesus, been baptized, and stepped up to serve. We celebrate the marriages saved, the addicts set free, and the broken healed. We celebrate the impact Sycamore Creek has made on thousands of people through outreach in our community and beyond!


We expect God to do something GREATER in our future and my prayer is that everyone would be involved in seeing this vision become a reality. Whether you have been a part of Sycamore Creek for a while, or you are new in our church family, I hope you will accept this invitation to participate in our GREATER campaign. Together we’ll see life-change happen, our community cared for, and lives equipped to impact others for the Kingdom of God. Everyone’s sacrifice matters and your participation counts immensely. Will you join us in this journey? From the depths of my heart I thank you for being a part of what God is doing through Sycamore Creek Church and I look forward to taking this journey together.


-Steve Markle // Lead Pastor
