Confirmation

In Lutheran tradition, parents often choose to present their children for the sacrament of Baptism at an early age, sometimes as an infant. At Baptism, parents, family members, sponsors and congregational members promise to raise the child to know and love Jesus. When the child reaches middle school, the child is encourage to complete Confirmation. At the conclusion of the two year Confirmation process the "Confirmand" takes on and owns the early promises of  their Baptism.  The Confirmand is expected to participate as an adult in the work of the church: worship, reading scripture, gathering for the Lord’s Supper, and sharing conversations about God, Jesus, faith, and how they fit together in our lives.

While Confirmation  Sunday is an important milestone in the lives of young Lutheran Christians, it is the two year period of study, fellowship, activities, and conversations that shapes a strong life-long relationship with God. Confirmands also develop long-term, nurturing friendships with other youth and adults that will further shape their faith journey.

Confirmation classes are held on Sunday mornings during the Sunday School hour and Wednesday evenings.  Led by caring adults, Confirmation includes Bible study, learning the fundamentals of faith, fun weekend retreats, service projects, planning and leading a Sunday Worship, and great fellowship activities.

Confirmation focuses on 7th and 8th graders, but exceptions can be made. Contact Terri Heckroth, Youth Director, for more information. 253 862-7700.

         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.

Virtual Sunday School

Hi Sunday School Families,

 

We sure miss you all and hope you are doing well and staying healthy! 

 

We found a fun craft to do for Holy Week! It is a Holy Week calendar, where you do a small craft every day this week. It also includes a memory verse and a song for each day. 

 

Here is an example on Pinterest so you can see what it looks like:

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:

Prayer Chain

Our Confirmation Students would like to pray for you during the season of Lent!  Please state your prayer request on a strip of paper (students will be handing them out before services on Sundays and Wednesdays during Lent), and turn them in to the collection plate.  Confirmation students will create a paper chain while praying for each request.

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.
