The Lord's Prayer in Perspective - Then and Now​:  presented by The Reverend Doctor Douglas Oakman (PLU).  As the 500th anniversary date of the Reformation approaches on October 31, 2017, it is appropriate to rethink the meaning and significance of the Lutheran tradition for our complex times. These adult sessions focus on the Prayer of Jesus or the Lord’s Prayer—as an anchor amidst confusion and as a beacon of hope in our Christian lives.  

  • The Prayer of Jesus in an agrarian world (the Lord’s Prayer in original context)

  • The Lord’s Prayer in modern context and Christian Worship 

Family Sunday School

Creator Lutheran is trying something new on Sunday mornings!  This new approach to learning and exploring God’s Kingdom comes from a desire to

·        Equip families to carry out Christian practices at home

·        Combine Christian Education with Mission and Service

·        Incorporate Faith formation into the Worship Service

·        Facilitate multigenerational discussion and wonderment about Bible Stories and God’s message for us today.

For these reasons, we would like to invite ALL to join us in Creator Family Sunday School.  All ages are welcome!  Parents, Grandparents, and siblings will eat breakfast together, hear a Bible Story, wonder and discuss the story, and learn some new music—all together!  Service projects will also be a big part of our time together.
