Creator Connection

JUNE 2021

Welcoming all to Worship, Grow, and Serve in God’s Grace.

Pastor’s

Corner

A message from

Pastor Amanda

Grace and Peace to you from God our Father

and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

My children are set to

wrap up a school year mid-

June that has been a study

of change. As schools have

gone (at different paces) from

distance, to hybrid, to six feet

of distance, to three feet of

distance, a common lesson

that has emerged is that

learning to adapt to changes

is part of life.

Our Creator Church

community has also been in

the crucible of changes for

several years: from a new

pastor, to a pandemic, and

from worshiping together

digitally to worshiping in

person and digitally together.

We have been called upon to

adapt.

The constant in life is

indeed change.

Change is not the only

constant in our lives. The

constant in our life of faith

is that the Good News of

the Gospel is constant,

consistent, and abundantly life

giving. God’s good news will

continually sound new to your

ears because the changes

and adaptions that the world

commands of us tend to drown

out the sweet sound of God’s

grace. Thankfully, God finds a

way to get that word of life and

grace into your ear and ground

you in God’s presence and

provision even in the midst of a

year marked by change.

We are at the cusp of another

round of changes. We may be

weary of what that will mean but

what is causing our weariness?

In part, we intuitively know

that while we all experienced

the pandemic, each of us had

different experiences of the

impact of the pandemic had

in our lives. Was it a time of

isolation and fear? Was it a time

of learning new hobbies? Was it

a time of financial struggle? Was

it a time to pare down the frenzy

of life to the essentials?

Additionally, we are not all on

the same timeline of emerging

from the pandemic. Just as we

acknowledge that our pandemic

experiences were diverse, so

too, is it helpful to know that

our emerging experiences will

be equally diverse. Naming that

reality, I believe is important. It

creates a space for empathy and

understanding.

Back in my middle school

days, I remember times when the

lesson was done and the teacher

would let us get ready to leave

the class before the bell rang. I

was almost always among the

students with their toes on the

threshold of the classroom into

the hallway waiting for the bell to

ring and release us into the great

churn of awkward middle school

interaction that was passing

time. I loved the energy and the

movement, some days, of the

passing time. I wanted to see

a friend or a classmate in the

passing time and catch up on

what had happened that might

have actually changed the world

in the past hour. Or sometimes, I

wanted to make sure that I could

time things just right to swing

by my locker in another part of

the building and make it to my

next class with time to spare and

Terri’s Two Cents

June is typically the month

in which we recognize the

achievement of graduation.

This year, we celebrate with six

high school graduates and two

college graduates from Creator.

Congratulations, Graduates!

Graduation can bring on

some diverse emotions. At my

own graduations, I remember

feeling confusion, loss, and fear.

I felt the grief of losing my best

friends and my “home away from

home,” all the familiar activities

and places. I was overwhelmed

with all the options that lay before

me. And I was afraid of the new

responsibilities that come with

adulthood. I was excited, but

also sad.

I realize now that what created

those painful feelings in me

was a misunderstanding of the

definition of the word “graduate.”

I thought that graduating

meant the end of good things.

Now, a bazillion years later, I

understand that graduation was

only the beginning of wonderful,

new things for me. In fact, the

graduation ceremony is called

“commencement,” which means

“a beginning.”

After high school, I entered

the job market where I learned

many new things and made

life-long friends. After college,

I began a career in teaching,

which I LOVED! My teaching

experience led me to this position

at Creator where I developed

such deep relationships (with you

all and with God) and expanded

my understanding of scripture

and how God is working in me.

I have noticed that after each

life accomplishment, a new

adventure begins. I will be ready

for that adventure because I

know that God will be with me.

“It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake

you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31: 8

Continued from pg. 1

not risk a tardy slip. Other days

I did not want to be noticed, so

I perched on that line with the

desire to jet out into the sea of

tween drama with the hope of

getting from one class to the

other without being noticed. And

on occasion, I even hung back in

the room not wanting to go to the

next class, much less into the

time between classes— I liked

where I was, what that class

had to offer and did not have the

energy or desire to see what was

next. It was middle school after

all, a time for mercurial emotions.

This time of transition ahead

of us that may last the summer

and may even reach into the fall

is a time in which some of us will

venture into the passing time from

pandemic living into whatever

this time is that we are in now.

As individuals, we will each likely

have a range of reactions to the

shape that re-opening takes in

your life. You may be vaccinated,

or you may not be. One day or

in a particular situation you

might feel comfortable but, in

another circumstance, or day,

you might feel cautious. Now

multiply that range of reaction

of each individual with each

person that has been gathered

into Creator by the Holy Spirit

to be the Body of Christ. The

middle school hallway seems

like a good metaphor doesn’t

it?! Complicated, awkward, and

somehow wonderful at times as

well.

It will be complicated. It will

require change. God knows that

there are so many things, people,

and experiences that will act like

thieves in our lives attempting to

steal our peace, our hope, and

rob us of our trust that God has

us and has brought us into a

community together. God knows

that sometimes that thief is even

ourselves, cue mirror.

We respond with

graciousness to ourselves and

to timelines and comfort levels

that do not match our own. I

am not saying that we won’t

be frustrated but I am inviting

awareness and compassion. We

don’t know the factors behind

the timelines and comfort levels

just like we often have not known

the stories behind the masks.

Knowing that we stumble and

that we struggle, God has given

us a promise, “I have come that

they may have life, and have it

abundantly,” John 10:10.

We are at another time of

change and God is right here

with us, being our constant

and pouring out upon us, as

individuals and as a community,

steadfast love and grace. God

will see us through. God gives

abundant life into all our timelines

and comfort levels to each of us

and to our community of faith.

Peace be with you,

Pastor Amanda

Hope After

the Storm

Creator Lutheran is

looking to bring members

back together in person this

summer with small group

gatherings.

If you can host a small

group gathering in your

backyard, lead a group for

a walk, or anything similar,

please contact the office

and let us know.

There is hope after the

storm church family, in

God’s grace.

Southwestern Washington Assembly 2021

Theme-With Hope and Vision

There were about 180 people attending this year’s 2021 SWWA Synod Assembly. The priorities of

our synod are: 1) Growing Leaders; 2) Cultivating new ministries; and 3) Energizing Congregations.

Over the 2 days they held several worship services, we participated in a lunchtime bible study,

discussed and voted in new Synod council members, voted on changes to the constitution, voted

on the budget, we broke into small group sessions, we met other members of the Synod as they

shared information about programs the Synod supports. One of the longer discussions was regarding

educational financial support for public higher learning. SWWA Synod will review the current support

and future support at the June council meeting. Paige Winsor showed up in a video of the Synod Alyve

Board where she serves as the Vice President. Horacio Castillo was voted to attend the Church-wide

Assembly in COLUMBUS OH, happening in August 2022.

In spite of having a virtual assembly, versus in person, many items were addressed and accomplished.

Blessings and Thank you,

Donna and Jeff Lovin

Fellowship

As we look toward summer vacation,

Church in Society is already planning for Back

to School support where we donate to various

agencies in contributing in school supplies.

While at times the year seemed to go slowly,

there is a sense that things are quickening

as the pandemic draws to a close. It’s a

wonderful feeling that we can look forward to

the future as Creator can make returning to

school more comfortable and welcoming for

many children.

Distribution of funds for the month of May

were as follows:

Church

In Society

• Sumner Food Bank

Regular..........................................$200

Backpack......................................$300

• Bonney Lake Food Bank

Regular..........................................$200

Backpack......................................$300

• Mothers2Many...................................$300

• Faith Action Network..........................$300

• New Hope..........................................$300

• Exodus Housing-for air mattresses....$268

(donations from Lent services)

At the moment, $650 was donated to the

Hunger Walk through the Emergency Food

Network by the church and individuals during

the month of May. This will feed many people

throughout Pierce County.

We are saving some funds for next month as

we determine back to school supplies. Thank

you for your generous support as Creator

shares its blessings with our communities.

God’s Blessings to you!

Thoughts on

Fellowship

Stewardship would like to hear

what is inspiring you at Creator.

A remarkable thing about

Creator has been the many ways

we have continued to gather

virtually, allowing our ministries

to remain active despite this

pandemic. From worship live in

Pastor Amanda’s living room in

the early days of Covid, to Zoom

Council, committees, confirmation,

Bible Study and program meetings,

connections and church life has

not been stagnant. In fact, far from

it. We continue to learn and find

new ways to connect, and maybe

some things are forever changed in

unique and positive ways because of

the pandemic.

Once worship resumed in small

numbers, with all participants

donning masks and sitting six

feet apart, some have continued

to connect from home via Zoom

or Facebook Live. These options

have allowed many members to be

together as a church. Not being able

to make it to church, or get a ride,

is no longer a barrier, and virtual

church may be the new normal for

some, allowing us to expand our

reach.

Lest we forget the many efforts

on the part of Pastor Amanda

to creatively encourage our faith

development, her ideas like Holy

We are uplifted by one

another. It is important

we share our stories

and encourage one

another. A significant

part of Stewardship is

to express appreciation,

not only to our church

but to God. Gratitude

can inspire generosity.

Week in a Box, and the Seven Stations

of Ash, and even last Sunday’s fun

celebration of Pentecost and the

birthday of the church have all been

very special. The daily devotions,

even done twice a day for a while,

have truly been beautiful teachings

and a true blessing.

Though Covid has prevented

much of the usual volunteer work

opportunities, did you know Creator

has continued to deliver meals to the

Hope Center and Peace Lutheran in

Tacoma? Our Creator Cares team

has connected with those needing

support, providing a listening ear,

encouragement, and prayer all while

following COVID safety distancing

protocols to ensure the health and

safety of our members as well as of

those in need. On two occasions our

Care-a-Van of cars visited members,

homebound with health conditions,

waiving uplifting signs and balloons

and ending with a word of prayer

offered by Pastor Amanda.

Our Youth and Family

ministry has not been deterred by

Covid either. Known for offering

wonderful events for our neighbors

in the area, they were able to spread

the good news with both a drive

through Halloween Carnival and

even an Easter Egg Hunt. Vacation

Bible School was virtual last

summer yet managed to reach about

200 children. And did you see the

beautiful Christmas message told

through video clip submissions by

our youth?

This is not a complete list of

the numerous ways our church

continues to teach and spread

God’s love and the good news of

Jesus to our Creator family and

the community throughout this

pandemic. God is on the move at

Creator. He has continued to touch

our hearts and is able to speak to

us through a powerful message,

even those that are virtual. He is

not limited by Zoom fellowship or

worship. He hears all our prayers

and has never left our side, even

during Covid.

Continued on pg. 8

Fellowship

Continued from pg. 7

How has Creator been able to

minister to you? What has been

meaningful for you and your family

during Covid? The isolation of

Covid brought the potential for us all

to appreciate even more the love at

Creator. As Romans 8:28 mentions,

God can work good in all situations.

Though this time has been difficult,

there have also been many blessings

and positive connections. For

example, many families, friends,

and relatives have enjoyed regular

contact through Zoom, facetime,

or other virtual gatherings. The

Stewardship Committee would

appreciate hearing how worship,

a ministry or program, or any

experience has possibly inspired

you or enriched your faith. If you

would be willing to share this in an

email, phone call, or maybe even a

short testimonial during worship

service, we invite those willing to

let us know. We are uplifted by one

another. It is important we share our

stories and encourage one another.

A significant part of Stewardship is

to express appreciation, not only to

our church but to God. Gratitude

can inspire generosity.

As restrictions continue to

lift, we would welcome your

participation as a volunteer. The

fellowship in service work is a great

way to meet members, make new

friends, and bless others.

Our Stewardship Committee is

in need of new members. We are

a fun group, so please let the office

know if you are interested in joining

us.

Pastoral Emergency Fund

Creator has a fund available to be used at the discretion of Pastor

Amanda to support congregation members and the community

as needed. If you or a member another member of the Creator

Community has a particular financial need at this time, please

reach out to Pastor Amanda for support. We are here for one

another at this time. This fund is also open for additional

donations from the congregation.

Recycle Your

Ink Cartridges

Don’t throw away those printer cartridges or used cell phones.

The Youth will recycle them for you. It’s good for the

environment and the youth program receives a small concession.

Just deposit old cartridges in the drawer in the narthex.

Creator Sunday School Is Back!

Creator’s Family Sunday School is Virtual!

We will be emailing Sunday School lessons with video stories

and links to music videos every week to our Sunday School

families. If you know of any family who would like to added to the

distribution list, please let Terri know. We will follow the narrative

lectionary so you can enjoy a family discussion after Sunday

School and Worship. Some videos will be saved on Creator’s

YouTube channel. We are also sending by email Family Daily

Devotions for Lent throughout this season.
