High School

Bible Study

In order to stay connected to a supportive faith community during the teen years, Creator Lutheran high school students meet weekly (Sundays from 6:00 - 8:00 PM) for an informal Bible Study and dinner. Youth representing 4 local high schools engage in discussions about prominent issues youth currently face and how God’s Word can help them navigate through the exciting and challenging times of life.  Video lessons are interesting and inspirational, and discussions promote deeper friendships.

Contact Terri Heckroth, Youth Director. 253-862-7700

 

Peer Ministry

High School students who wish to continue the faith formation begun in Confirmation can also become Peer Ministers. Peer Ministers are provided training on listening, mentoring and leadership skills to successfully work with Creator Confirmation students.   Peer Ministers are also wonderful role models for younger children in their youth group activities.They provide experience and maturity in the presentation of the Youth Led Worship service, Vacation Bible School and other church-wide events. Peer Ministers also have opportunities to grow through their own weekly small group devotions and discussions.

Worship Services Cancelled

March 13, 2020
Dear Creator Community,
To be faithful to our calling to care for the most vulnerable among us, Creator will cancel in person Sunday and Wednesday worship, all programming, and other events through at least April 1. We have listened to the information from our Governor, Jay Inslee and many in the health and medical community about the importance to work together to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus. By practicing “social distance”, we show our love for the neighbor and our
compassion for the community.
As we move through these days of Lent, a time of drawing close to God, we already hear the angels at the tomb, saying “Do not be afraid.” Our decision does not come from fear or panic, but from deep trust that life is stronger than death, love is stronger than fear, and God will take care of the church. Our Lenten discipline has truly become “doing works of love” for the greater good.
The mission of Creator will continue in creative ways during this time of limited programming:

Creator Vacation Bible School

Kids ages 4 years old through 6th grade,

take up the gauntlet and accept the challenge to "armor up"

and be strong by showing God's love to the world! 
Become a brave knight this summer
July 27-31, 2020
Vacation Bible School

 Creator Lutheran Church and Preschool

Senior High Youth

       High School students are invited to spend some time during this Lenten season visiting different Worship Spaces.  We are proud of our Lutheran roots, and we like to hear stories from our own faith background.  But we also want to discuss faith with our neighbors and friends, so we have chosen to experience a taste of the Worship practices of people from other faith backgrounds.  This year, we will visit 2 different sites.  This is the schedule: 

Saturday, March 21 at noon--Hindu Festival of Holi at Marymoor Park in Redmond.

This is a Festival of Color.  Bring $5 for color packets and money for lunch.

Meet at Creator at 11am.  We return about 6pm

 

Sunday, March 22 at 5pm--St. Therese Catholic Parish in Seattle

This is a Catholic Mass with a fun and upbeat Gospel Choir

Meet at Creator at 3:30pm.  We’ll return about 7:30pm

Family Sunday School

family_sunday_school_1.jpg

Please join us for FAMILY SUNDAY SCHOOL!  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. 

Peer Ministry

Peer Ministry

Wednesday Evenings from September through May from 7:00pm-8:30pm

            For students in 9th – 12th grades:  Confirmation doesn’t have to end.  You can be a helper!  We need Peer Ministers to help out with Confirmation small groups, go on retreats, and lead devotions at youth group outings.  If you are interested in becoming a Peer Minister, plan to attend classes on Wednesdays during Confirmation time (7pm-8:30pm).   If you attend these classes and are properly trained, you can be a helper on retreats.
