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.

Preschool News!

Dear Preschool Parents,

            Goodbye summer, hello fall and welcome to the Creator Preschool Family!  We have been blessed with delightful children and great families!  It doesn’t get much better than that!    

            September was a wonderful month for making new friends and getting reacquainted with old ones.  Welcome new families! 

            For the last few years, we have had Julie Buelle of Buelle Photography come to school to take class and individual pictures.  Mark October 8th and 9th on your calendar and look for more information to come. *There will be a class time change for the afternoon classes to accommodate Mrs. Buelle’s schedule.  The T/W/Th afternoon class will begin at 12:15pm on Thursday, Oct. 8th, and end at 3:00pm.  The Mon/Fri afternoon class will begin at 12:30pm o Friday, Oct. 9th, and end at 3:00pm.  Classes will go back to their normal schedule the next week.

Presentation of Bibles to Children

Presentation of Bibles to

Kindergartner through 6th Graders.

As God’s people, we value the scriptures and desire for children to grow in understanding and use of the scriptures as they mature.  For this reason, Creator will present to our young members (Kindergarten through 6th Grade), an age-appropriate Bible on Sunday, October 18 after Worship service is over (about 10:45am). 

This will be a Drive Through activity with families stopping at a few stations in the parking lot to discover the Bible through an easy scavenger hunt of Bible information.  Prizes will be awarded at each station. 

Please sign up so we know how many Bibles to have available.

         The following young people will be making their Affirmation of Baptism on Sunday, October 25 at a special Worship service at 9:30am.  Since we cannot have more than 50 people in the sanctuary at this time during the pandemic, we need to limit In-Person Worship attendance to the Confirmands and their families on that day.  Please join the celebration by watching on Facebook live, Zoom, or later on our YouTube channel. 

            Kendra Hemmen

            Lydia Brannan

Please make a point to congratulate these young men and women and welcome them as confirmed members of Creator.

Join us for Vacation Bible School this summer!

July 27-31, 2020

Being a neighbor means more than being nearby ― it means seeing each other as images of the living God all around us. Come see the ways God has blessed us and our neighbors ― and the role we can play in God’s promise of a just world where all are fed.

Online through Facebook live and YouTube (Creator Lutheran channel)

Craft supplies will be available at the church the week before. 

Please register before July 20 so we can prepare enough craft packets.

Vacation Bible School

VBS will look a little different this summer.  Normally, Creator is bursting with excitement as over 200 children, youth, and adult staff fill the building for a week in the summer.  In consideration of the health and safety of all the families in our community during this unusual year, VBS will be presented to families via Facebook live, email, and YouTube.     

During the week of July 27-31, 2020, our VBS leadership team will email and post Bible story skits, craft ideas, and upbeat songs to families to use in a home style Vacation Bible School.  Using Facebook live and Creator’s YouTube channel, Bible lessons will come to life through skits, music, and crafts.  Craft supplies for the entire week will be available to pick up on Monday, July 27. 

Registration will open May 25.  Please sign up so we will know how many craft kits to make up.

Family Sunday School Celebration is Sunday, May 31.

This day will mark the end of the school year for Family Sunday School.  We will return in September!   

Our hope is to create a slideshow celebrating children of Creator which will be shown in Worship.  Parents, please email pictures of your children engaged in any creative endeavor (Sunday School crafts, school assignments, anything your kids are doing to stay busy during this Stay at Home order).  All pictures need to be emailed to creatorterri@comcast.net by May 24 so we can have the slideshow ready by May 31.
