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.

 Night Maze at Maris Farms

Sunday, October 26  6:00pm

Instead of High School Bible Study next Sunday, we will go to Maris Farms for a night hike in the corn maze.  Cost is $12 per person (scholarships are available.  Just let Terri know).  Meet at Terri's house for dinner at 6:00pm, and we will drive to Maris Farms afterward.  Bring extra cash if you would like to buy pumpkins or snacks.  We will be done with the maze by 8:30pm and back to Terri's house by 9:00pm. You MUST bring your own flashlight.

 If you are coming from Buckley, you can arrange to meet us at Maris Farms at 6:45pm.  Just let Terri know you are coming.  And you may be picked up at Maris Farms at 8:30pm.
 All participants MUST sign up so we know how many drivers we will need.  And you will all need to have a current medical release form on file with the church.

 Friends are welcome!

What is the ALYVE Board?

ALYVE.JPG~~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. 

Sr.High Bible Study

Terri's Two Cents

two cents.jpg~~I have always had a rebellious side.  For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to argue about something . . . anything.  When I was in elementary school, I came close to suspension when I sent a petition around the school to change a rule the principal felt was very important, that girls must never wear pants to school.  Even as a 10 year old, I felt strongly that this rule was unfair to women and girls.  

We're back!!!!

Final - Copy.JPGThe Youth Mission Team is back from Los Angeles, California where they served meals to the homeless, tutored children at a summer school in a low income neighborhood, visited the elderly in a retirement hotel, sorted food at a food bank, and met and listened to the stories of some wonderful people whose home is the paved sidewalk in skid row of downtown LA.  This group learned much about extreme poverty and God's grace and hope for God's people in ALL walks of life.  Thank you so much for your support both financially and in prayer and encouragement!  We are all grateful to belong to a faith family that supports this call to love and understand ALL the people of God.

Please plan on attending the Mission Brunch on Sunday, September 14 at 12:15pm where we will show a slideshow and tell stories of our experience.
