To Parents of Young Children

Hi parents of young children,
       I can imagine the challenges you are facing during this time of pandemic.  Most of you are very busy and have added the responsibilities of home schooling your children to your already full lives.  If there is anything we at Creator can do to help you out, please let us know.  Feel free to call, email, or text Terri Heckroth anytime (253-312-7219).  Know that you are always in our prayers. 
       Charlene and I have found some resources to help your children stay connected to this faith family and continue to learn and wonder about God's great love through Jesus.  We will continue to email you links to videos, coloring sheets, activity sheets, and sing-a-long videos on a weekly basis (probably Wednesdays and Sundays).  
       Please remember that we are live streaming Worship on Sundays at 9:30am and Wednesdays at 7pm.  Pastor Amanda is live streaming devotions twice a day Monday through Friday at 9am and 8pm through Zoom.  The little ones can work on the activity sheets or coloring sheets while listening to Worship or Devotions.  Another idea is to give them some Play Dough to illustrate the message they are listening to.  
        I would suggest parents just print pages 14-24 in the Easter Story book, which are the non colored ones, that kids can color and then cut and paste the pictures into.  It also makes 2 books, so if you have 2 kids you only need to print the pages once.
       Our Sunday School team already miss the kids and hope you are all healthy and happy.  If you'd like to share pictures of your family, we'd love to see them (and post with your permission).  
Love and Prayers for health!
Terri, Charlene, Nick, and Cheri
