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.

Family Sunday School

family_sunday_school_0.jpg

 

 

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. 

ALL CALL CHOIRS

All Call Choir is for all ages and ability levels.  The music is simple enough to be learned in 3 rehearsals for all who participate, even those who may not have any experience in music.  Don't want to sing?  We also have a hand chimes option!  Please let Dani know if you're interested at least once week prior to the first rehearsal (as she will need to create music parts).

 Everyone is invited!  In fact, encourage all your friends, relatives, and neighbors to come too.

What is the ALYVE Board?

The ALYVE (Associated Lutheran Youth in Various Endeavors) board is a group of Sr. High students representing 91 churches all around the Southwest Washington Synod.  They come together in a common mission to bring the youth of our area closer to God and to each other.  Each Lutheran church in the SWWA synod is encouraged to send one or two students to the annual ALYVE board Convocation where officers are elected and projects are planned.  These young board members work hard and give countless hours to serving the larger church. 

Confirmation Orientation

ginger 4.JPGDo you know anyone in 7th or 8th Grade (or older if they have not been Confirmed)?  Let them know about our exciting Confirmation Program.  Students learn about God's Great Love, a few Bible stories, and all about Luther's small Catechism; all while having FUN!  Meet new friends, play on weekend retreats, eat lots of junk food, and serve others.  For more information, please attend an orientation meeting for parents and students this Wednesday, September 17 at 7:00pm.
