We offer a 'pay at the door' freewill donation option, but if an event attracts more than our 150-seat limit, we can be forced to turn 'walk-in' guests away. To ensure seating regardless of arrival time, concertgoers may make a $5 per-person non-refundable 'down payment' in the form of a 'ticket' (and they can donate more when they arrive - total $10 per-person donation encouraged but all donations are appreciated). Those who are unable to make donations via the internet may phone 815.979.1949 or email to make special arrangementsOr, just come to the concert and hope there's a vacant seat - there typically is. 



We publish all our event details and ticket links on Facebook, and a Facebook account is not required to see them. <CLICK OR TAP HERE to jump to our Facebook page with details about all of this season's concerts>.  



We have first-floor access from our 97-vehicle parking lot to our listening area. Seating is on comfortable individual chairs (not pews) and we maintain generous aisle space. Because vehicles parked on Spring Brook Road might be ticketed, we encourage concertgoers to carpool, helping to ensure that our 97 spaces will be adequate for 150 listeners.


Most of our concerts occur on Saturdays, and they last about two hours (with a 15-minute mid-concert intermission). From mid-May through Mid-September, Saturday concerts typically begin at 7pm and end around 9pm. The rest of the year, most Saturday concerts are matinees that run from 3pm to 5pm. We occasionally offer special Friday evening and Sunday afternoon concerts. Exact times for all our events are listed at <our simple list> and <at our Facebook location>

We are grateful for the sponsorship of Downtown Discount Drugs and OBrien & Dobbins Pharmacy. The outreach mission of the concert initiative is to provide a venue for affordable live music in the local community, and financial assistance may be available for those who find our attendance donations a hardship. Please leave a message for our volunteer coordinators at or at (815) 877-2576. 

For those who want to support more of our church's outreach initiatives, an opportunity to contribute directly to our current PayIt4ward recipient will also be offered at each concert, continuing a tradition that began in 2018 and has benefited many worthy non-profits in Rockford and the wider community.

Musicians who believe they are a good fit for our concert series may submit information via this email form. Please provide at least one URL for a video recording that shows you performing live, with the personnel you would use if you did a concert for us. Please do not submit URLs for studio recordings.


Concert coordinators will do our best to acknowledge your inquiry promptly, but please be aware that we are all volunteers who have other jobs in addition to our Concerts On The Creek responsibilities.

PLEASE do not leave time-sensitive phone inquiries about our concerts on the church answering machine. A church staff member is usually available to answer the phone during our office hours of 10-2 on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday but many inquiries will have to be redirected to concert committee members.
