<strong>Creator</strong> <strong>Connection</strong><br />

<strong>December</strong> <strong>2023</strong><br />

Welcoming all to Worship, Grow, and Serve in God’s Grace.<br />

It’s The Most<br />

Wonderful<br />

Time of the Year<br />

Pastor’s Corner<br />

A message from Pastor Horacio<br />

Grace and Peace to you from God our Father<br />

and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.<br />

But, is it though? Is Christmas<br />

the most wonderful time of the<br />

year?<br />

According to Andy Williams<br />

and all the messaging we hear<br />

in the radio, social media, and<br />

the newspapers (if that is still a<br />

thing), it sure is, “with the kids<br />

jingle belling, and everyone<br />

telling you ‘Be of good cheer;’<br />

It’s The Most Wonderful Time<br />

Of The Year. When friends<br />

come to call...There’ll be parties<br />

for hosting, marshmallows for<br />

toasting. It’s The Most Wonderful<br />

Time Of The Year.” You see all<br />

around you and you can’t miss<br />

Christmas has arrived, or the<br />

Holidays, as other people prefer<br />

to call it. Christmas trees are<br />

decorated, lights shining from<br />

anywhere they can be hung,<br />

the air is crisp, the food is being<br />

prepared, and the anticipation<br />

of family, friends, and church<br />

gatherings is palpable—and it<br />

will be more palpable with an<br />

extra pound or two after the<br />

festivities have come and gone.<br />

We are not only told how this is<br />

the most wonderful time of the<br />

year and how we should be of<br />

“good cheer,” but that we should<br />

not be sad, or struggle, or even<br />

worry about our life situations<br />

and what is going on in the world.<br />

We also remember that J.<br />

Fred Coots and Haven Gillespie<br />

Continued from pg. 1<br />

also gave us Santa Claus is<br />

Coming to Town. They tells us,<br />

and many times we sing along<br />

without missing a bit, in a rather<br />

threatening but upbeat and<br />

dynamic catchy song that “you<br />

better watch out, you better not<br />

cry, you better not pout, I am<br />

telling you why, Santa Claus is<br />

coming to town. Oh, he’s making<br />

a list and checking it twice, he’s<br />

gonna find out who’s naughty<br />

or nice. Santa Claus is coming<br />

to town. Oh, he sees you when<br />

you’re sleeping, he knows when<br />

you’re awake, he knows if you’ve<br />

been bad or good, so be good<br />

for goodness sake!”<br />

Am I saying that we should<br />

not be of good cheer, enjoy<br />

Christmas, and all that comes<br />

with it? No. What I am saying is<br />

that “being of good cheer” cannot<br />

be prescribed. In many cases<br />

everything is going well and we<br />

are able to enjoy the season<br />

without thinking too much about<br />

anything else. In other cases we<br />

have our struggles but we still<br />

celebrate the season, and in<br />

other situations, there is nothing<br />

to celebrate because we are in<br />

mourning, sad, and in despair,<br />

whatever the reason.<br />

So now we need not only<br />

ask the question, is Christmas<br />

the most wonderful time of the<br />

year? But, why? The answer<br />

we, as Christians, can provide<br />

is that, yes, Christmas is one of<br />

the most wonderful times of the<br />

year, along with Advent, Easter,<br />

Pentecost, and even Holy Week.<br />

And the reason why is because<br />

Christ is not only coming to town,<br />

but He’s already here, in your<br />

death and in your life. He comes<br />

to you not telling you that you<br />

“should be of good cheer” or that<br />

you “should not pout or cry,” but<br />

He is telling you: “I am here for<br />

you, whether you celebrate and<br />

rejoice or whether you mourn<br />

and despair.<br />

In mourning and rejoicing<br />

Christ is here for you, to bring<br />

you a promise, whether it is<br />

Christmas or any other time of<br />

the year. And this promise is<br />

that you are a Baptized child of<br />

God in Christ Jesus, you have<br />

been chosen by God, and He<br />

shows His mercy to you as<br />

Christ became flesh and dwells<br />

in and among you whatever your<br />

life circumstance. This is the<br />

promise we read on Christmas<br />

Eve, and every single Sunday<br />

in one way or another, from<br />

Matthew 1:18-25, “Look, [said<br />

the Angel of the Lord to Joseph]<br />

the virgin shall conceive and<br />

bear a son, and they shall name<br />

him Emmanuel,” which means,<br />

“God is with us,” (verse 23).<br />

And the same promise is given<br />

to you this year again with the<br />

words of Isaiah 9:2 “The people<br />

who walked in darkness have<br />

seen a great light; those who<br />

lived in a land of deep darkness<br />

on them light has shined.” And<br />

Titus 2:11 “For the grace of God<br />

has appeared, bringing salvation<br />

for all people…[through] our<br />

great God and Savior, Jesus<br />

Christ, who gave himself for us<br />

to redeem us from all [sin and<br />

darkness].”<br />

So, there you have it, God<br />

is not afraid to come all the way<br />

to you in the flesh to dwell in<br />

and with you bringing you His<br />

light of salvation, in the midst of<br />

Ministry<br />

joy and sorrow, in the midst of<br />

rejoicing and mourning, and in<br />

the midst of light and darkness.<br />

God with you, God for you, your<br />

Emmanuel. Thanks be to God.<br />

Amen.<br />

Fellowship<br />

Church Council Highlights<br />

The Council opened in prayer<br />

with appreciation for the Ministry<br />

teams and all the good works<br />

that they do in supporting the<br />

Church, society, and each other.<br />

There are many people willingly<br />

putting forth such a great deal of<br />

their time and effort that we are<br />

frequently not fully aware of how<br />

much is being given so freely.<br />

Prayers of thanks for all the<br />

Ministry Teams and each of<br />

those people who serve in them.<br />

The Fall Festival was very<br />

successful as was the middle<br />

school retreat.<br />

Budget<br />

The budget will be presented<br />

to the congregation for vote on<br />

Dec. 3.<br />

Old business<br />

Roof update: The roof project<br />

at the back of the Church has<br />

been completed, inspected and<br />

signed off. The cost came in at<br />

exactly the bid estimate and the<br />

roofer has been paid.<br />

Thanks to all who helped to<br />

get this project completed.<br />

There was a discussion about<br />

the second half of the roofing<br />

project slated for the summer of<br />

2025.<br />

At this time, the Council is<br />

going to concentrate on funding<br />

for that project.<br />

Budget: The budget will be<br />

presented to the congregation<br />

for vote on <strong>December</strong> 3.<br />

The Property Team is in the<br />

process of forming an emergency<br />

action plan for the<br />

Church. This will take some<br />

time, but effective progress is<br />

already being made.<br />

Membership: Eleven new<br />

members were added to the<br />

Church.<br />

The Council closed with the<br />

Lord’s Prayer.<br />

Financial Report<br />

All is well with Altar Guild as we prepare for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. This is a busy<br />

time of year for us as we begin a new liturgical year and prepare for the arrival of Baby Jesus.<br />

With Holden Evening Prayer on Wednesdays, there are more opportunities to gather, even<br />

though no communion is served on these Wednesdays. If you would like to volunteer, please<br />

contact Linda Reed and we will add you to our group. We have welcomed new member Mary<br />

Mead and are delighted that some of our members are able to serve in other ways for worship<br />

with increased servers in Altar Guild.<br />

Merry Christmas!<br />

Fellowship<br />

Thoughts on<br />

Why your generosity to <strong>Creator</strong> Lutheran matters!<br />

With your Generosity, we provided 850 Backpacks for kids who might not have enough to eat on the<br />

weekends. (that is not a typo.)<br />

With your Generosity, we helped numerous families at Bonney Lake and Sumner food banks.<br />

With your generosity, we sent 13 youth and adults to Kentucky to walk alongside a neighbor in Christ.<br />

With your generosity, Groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and the Girl scouts have a safe place to<br />

meet.<br />

With your Generosity, preschool kids have a safe, Christian environment in which to learn and grow.<br />

With your Generosity, people have a place to go when they are grieving, or feel lost.<br />

With your Generosity we have a place to hear the saving, healing word each Sunday, and have a<br />

community that claims us, just as we are.<br />

Your Generosity, whether it is time, talent,<br />

or money, matters, and makes a difference.<br />

If you are volunteering or giving regularly, THANK YOU!<br />

This Christmas season, we boldly ask that you consider an additional gift, in support of our mission<br />

and ministry.<br />

We can't do it without you, and we believe it<br />

is worth doing.<br />

Children, Youth, and Family<br />

The 12 Symbols of Christmas<br />

Happy Holidays! Christmas is just around the corner and we are starting to prepare for our annual<br />

christmas play that will be held during church service on <strong>December</strong> 17th (9:30a)!<br />

There will be no Sunday School on Novemeber 26th but we will be doing a family Advent event; so<br />

please join us!<br />

Families that have been in sunday school over the last 2 weeks have already started practicing the<br />

Christmas songs and chosen some of the speaking and reading parts. The play is a super cute story of<br />

a mom explaining to her children why we decorate on christmas and demonstrates the meaning behind<br />

the 12 decorations.<br />

Important Dates<br />

• <strong>December</strong> 3rd 9:45am- First run through of the play with parts and music<br />

• <strong>December</strong> 10th 9:45am- Full run through with modified decorations, and full music<br />

• <strong>December</strong> 17th 8:00am- Full run through with full decorations, music, costumes, etc<br />

• Additional Rehearsal outside of Sunday School time if needed- date TBD<br />

•<br />

We are still looking for the following parts<br />

• 1 Speaking part (small memorization with very short lines) Playing the part of one of the children<br />

• 2-3 (or more) Reading parts (no memorization required but are short paragraphs)<br />

• All children who want to participate and don't want a speaking or reading part (or are too little)<br />

will help decorate the family's room with the different symbols and are welcome to dress up as a<br />

specific symbol. (listed below)<br />

• ** Please let me know if your child would like one of the speaking or reading parts ASAP**<br />

Other things that I need help with<br />

• Acquiring supplies and preparing decorations<br />

These are the 12 Symbols<br />

• Evergreen Tree<br />

• Ornament<br />

• Star<br />

• Angel<br />

• Present<br />

• Ribbon/bows<br />

• Candy Cane<br />

• Holly<br />

• Wreath<br />

• Candle/Lights<br />

• Bells<br />

• Cookie<br />

These are the Songs that we will be singing (so you can start practicing)- I will distribute booklets for<br />

families on Nov. 26 and Dec. 3<br />

• Joy to the World<br />

• O Little Town of Bethlehem<br />

• Silent Night<br />

• Hark the Herald Angels Sing<br />

• Go Tell it on the Mountain<br />

If you have any questions or secret talents that could be helpful please let me know! I also attached<br />

the poster that we will put up at church.<br />

Preschool<br />

Preschool News<br />

<strong>December</strong> <strong>2023</strong><br />

Dear Parents,<br />

We hope your Thanksgiving was blessed with love. In November, the children enjoyed their sports<br />

day and “turkey feast”. We would like to thank everyone for helping our adopted families have a<br />

wonderful Thanksgiving. Our preschool was able to feed two families with your generous donations.<br />

We could not have done it without you. We are so blessed to have such great families.<br />

On Monday afternoon, <strong>December</strong> 18, Tuesday, <strong>December</strong> 19 and Wednesday morning,<br />

<strong>December</strong> 20 we will have an In-House Christmas celebration for our preschool children. We are<br />

encouraging the children to wear a fun Christmas outfit for the celebration. We would love to have<br />

parent volunteers from each of our classes to help with the games, etc. Please let us know if you can<br />

help.<br />

In <strong>December</strong>, our preschool will be collecting new “unwrapped” toys for local children. Please have<br />

them here by <strong>December</strong> 15th. We will deliver the toys to the Bonney Lake fire and police department<br />

and they will distribute them to families in our community.<br />

Our last school days before Christmas will be Monday, <strong>December</strong> 18th, Tuesday, <strong>December</strong><br />

19th and Wednesday, <strong>December</strong> 20th. There will be no Wednesday afternoon class. Winter/<br />

Christmas Break begins on Thursday, <strong>December</strong> 21st. Because your houses are probably as<br />

hectic as ours during the end of <strong>December</strong>, we will not send home the envelopes and newsletters/<br />

calendars until the children return in January. Please check the <strong>December</strong> snack calendar for the first<br />

week of January for snack names. Classes will resume on Thursday, January 4th, 2024.<br />

As we enter the winter months, remember that if there are weather issues, we will follow the Sumner<br />

School District. We always want your safety and the well- being of the children to be the highest<br />

priority, but we always want to have school if possible. So, if the Sumner School District is adequately<br />

concerned about the road conditions to change their schedules, we will do the same. Watch TV or go<br />

to flashalert.net, click on Pierce County Schools, then Sumner School District to find out the status of<br />

the school district. If the Sumner School District closes, then <strong>Creator</strong> Preschool will also be closed. If<br />

there is a late start for the district, we will have afternoon classes only. We will not call each family, but<br />

if you should have any concerns, please feel free to call your teachers.<br />

Again, we hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. As Christmas time approaches, if you have<br />

been looking for a church family, we hope you will feel welcome to join us on Sunday morning as well<br />

as during the week. Share in the delight as your children learn about the story of Baby Jesus. He is<br />

the reason for the season!<br />

We wish you all a most Joyous and Blessed Advent Season!<br />

Your teachers,<br />

Andrea (Mrs. D), Ragan (Mrs. Allen) and Cheri (Ms. Farrer)<br />
