Youth and Family

The mission of Creator’s Youth and Family Ministry team is to bring God’s Children closer to their Heavenly Father. Through discussion of the word and sharing of fellowship we hope to deepen our children’s faith and develop a life-long relationship with Christ.

Our youth ministry deliberately guides young people into Christian discipleship by:

  • Involving youth and their families in a safe and Christian community,
  • Encouraging them to live spiritually rich, God-centered lives,
  • And preparing them to impact their world for Christ.

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.  

Music for Children (Pre-K through 5th grade)

Music for preschoolers through 5th graders will happen on Sunday mornings as part of the family education hour (Sunday School).  Children in this age bracket are welcome to prepare special music outside of this education hour and meet with Dani 2-3 times before offering their music for worship - this can be singing or playing piano or another instrument they have been playing for a couple of years.  If children are interested in putting together a group song for worship, this is also a possibility.  Dani encourages children to share their God-given musical gifts when they are able.  

Children are also welcome and encouraged to participate in the Christmas and Easter All Call Choirs (go to "All Call Choirs" page for details),

Please contact Dani to set up practices for special music or if you have any questions:  dani@creatorlutheran.net or 253-862-7700.

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).
