Middle School

Early adolescence is an important time in the spiritual development of a child. This is a time when thinking begins to shift from concrete concepts to more abstract. The child can form their own faith questions as opposed to believing or behaving as they are expected to by adults. Peer friendships begin to have a larger impact on the thinking of early teens. The key to fostering continued faith development is to provide a safe place with a circle of peers and adults who are on a similar spiritual journey.

The Confirmation program at Creator provides such a place for adolescent spiritual growth. But not all youth who are interested in such an experience are required to participate in the full confirmation experience. We have plenty of teens who participate on a drop-in basis or may belong to other faith communities. We also have teens that just participate in our mission trips. If you and/or your child have an interest in Creator’s youth activities, please contact our Youth Director, Terri Heckroth at 253 862-7700. Also check out our Confirmation page and Mission Trips page (under the “Serving” tab on our website) to get a glimpse of activities.

 

 

 

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:

Family Sunday School

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.
