Pastor’s Corner<br />

A message from Pastor Amanda<br />

Endure<br />

This last few days the sunshine<br />

and warmth turned to rain and<br />

cold once again and every time<br />

I have put on a pair of socks and<br />

begun to walk around my feet<br />

have been cold. Each time, I sit<br />

down and lift my foot up to see<br />

that yet another pair of socks<br />

has gone threadbare on the ball<br />

and heel of the foot. Yet another<br />

pair of socks to be thrown out—<br />

darning them would do no<br />

good at this point! Pretty soon,<br />

I am afraid that I will not have<br />

any socks left to put on at all. If<br />

this was summer, I would just<br />

transition to only sandals but we<br />

still have springs ups and downs<br />

ahead of us— sandals need to<br />

wait!<br />

My socks are not the only thing<br />

that are threadbare these days.<br />

Two of our newer small groups<br />

are Grieving with Grace<br />

groups. The times we gather are<br />

holy time of mutual care and<br />

consolation just as they show<br />

clearly just how prevalent grief is<br />

in our lives.<br />

Our confirmation students in<br />

their inquisitiveness are asking,<br />

“how do we know that God<br />

is faithful to His promises?”<br />

They are hearing the promises<br />

of God, and they are living<br />

lives as they mature and notice<br />

what is happening in the world<br />

around them just how worn and<br />

worrisome life is as well. They<br />

want to know, to hear, that God<br />

is faithful.<br />

The cold temperatures in<br />

February froze many pipes at<br />

<strong>Creator</strong> including our sprinkler<br />

system. It has been disheartening<br />

to see the generosity of the<br />

congregation in December and<br />

Ministry<br />

January be used so quickly to meet<br />

these emergency needs of our<br />

church building. We are finally<br />

back on line as we reach the end of<br />

Lent and move into Easter.<br />

In Pastor Horacio and my home,<br />

we have had to make the difficult<br />

decision to put down our beloved<br />

dog, Mello. His threadbareness<br />

has gotten to a point in which he<br />

can no longer lift himself up. Our<br />

hearts are heavy even as we prepare<br />

to hold onto the promise of a new<br />

heaven and new earth even as we<br />

only see and feel loss and grief.<br />

Lent has a way of exposing the<br />

places where we are worn thin and<br />

exposed to the elements of sin,<br />

death and the devil. Granted these<br />

spring up as anxiety, stress, overfunctioning,<br />

giving-up, isolation<br />

and hopelessness but the root is<br />

still in these three powers that work<br />

against God and the life that God<br />

has gifted us with.<br />

Easter Monday may have fallen on<br />

<strong>April</strong> Fools day this year, moving<br />

us from Resurrection into a day<br />

for fools, but we are not fools to<br />

have hope in the midst of our<br />

threadbareness. The world does<br />

consider us fools for trusting… for<br />

hoping for a today filled with life<br />

and light… but that is exactly what<br />

we do have.<br />

Christ the Power and Wisdom of God<br />

1 Corinthians 1:18-31<br />

18 For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing,<br />

but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 20 Where is the one<br />

who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not<br />

God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since, in the wisdom of<br />

God, the world did not know God through wisdom, God decided, through<br />

the foolishness of our proclamation, to save those who believe. 22 For Jews<br />

demand signs and Greeks desire wisdom, 23 but we proclaim Christ crucified,<br />

a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those who<br />

are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the<br />

wisdom of God. 25 For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and<br />

God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.<br />

26 Consider your own call, brothers and sisters: not many of you were wise<br />

by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth.<br />

27 But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose<br />

what is weak in the world to shame the strong; 28 God chose what is low<br />

and despised in the world, things that are not, to reduce to nothing things<br />

that are, 29 so that no one might boast in the presence of God. 30 He is the<br />

source of your life in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and<br />

righteousness and sanctification and redemption, 31 in order that, as it is<br />

written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”<br />


Ministry<br />

Where Lent exposed our need,<br />

Easter brings the dawn of hope. The<br />

resurrection brings the Alleluia into<br />

each moment when our limits are<br />

made so clear. God has overcome<br />

the world for you, for me, for the<br />

sake of the world. God comes into<br />

each moment when we see that we<br />

are threadbare and careworn and<br />

rather than say try harder or do<br />

better or think of every possible<br />

outcome or whatever else we hear<br />

or tell ourselves. God says I have<br />

overcome this for you as well. It<br />

is not who you are for you are my<br />

child.<br />

We are the Body of Christ <strong>Creator</strong>.<br />

God has provided for us all that is<br />

needed.<br />

If you see or hear the evidence<br />

of someone in our midst that is<br />

threadbare, you are invited to<br />

name it and to pray. Why have you<br />

noticed? Has anyone else noticed?<br />

How might God be calling you<br />

to bring God’s gift of new life and<br />

hope to the threadbare among<br />

us? You are called to be present,<br />

to serve, to care, to live into your<br />

calling to be part of the Body<br />

of Christ at <strong>Creator</strong>. Just as the<br />

confirmation youth are learning<br />

to put trust and put to use God’s<br />

promises, you too you given this<br />

same gift in God’s grace poured out<br />

for you.<br />

Peace, Pastor Amanda<br />

He is Risen<br />

Helping Hands House<br />

Each year, a portion of our church’s tithe goes to<br />

support Helping Hands House.<br />

Thank you for helping us support this ministry<br />

Helping Hand House was founded in 1984 by Margie Addington who saw a need to help families<br />

facing homelessness in the local community. Helping Hand House has since been providing<br />

emergency shelter and supportive services for the past 30 years to help families with children<br />

experiencing homelessness move from crisis to stability and self-sufficiency.<br />

“Three days after Christmas, my 3 kids and I were forced<br />

from our house because of a foreclosure notice served on our<br />

landlord. We were shocked and scared. Helping Hand House<br />

put us into an emergency home and gave us all the resources<br />

and supplies we needed to be successful going forward. We<br />

are now back on our feet, in our own home, and doing well<br />

because of Helping Hand House.” — NICOLE<br />


Ministry<br />

Helping Hands House Values<br />

Urgent Relief. We respond with immediacy<br />

and agility.<br />

Trust. We are helpful, confidential, ethical and<br />

professional.<br />

Dignity. We treat everyone with respect,<br />

and we help people move toward a deeper<br />

understanding of their possibilities and<br />

potential.<br />

By the Numbers:<br />

145 Families served through one of their programs.<br />

275 Children moved from unsafe housing conditions<br />

into a safe place to call home.<br />

7 emergency homes to provide temporary housing for<br />

families with children experiencing homelessness.<br />

Helping Hands House Programs:<br />

Open Hearth Ministries provides immediate respite care for families with children experiencing homelessness<br />

in Pierce County. During a brief motel stay, families receive light case management, resource referrals, and<br />

encouragement as they work toward their next stable housing solution.<br />

Emergency Shelter provides temporary housing for families with children experiencing homelessness. Families<br />

stay in one of seven agency-owned or contributed homes and receive case management tailored to the specific<br />

needs of the family. During their stay, HHH helps the family work to secure permanent housing through HHH’s<br />

Rapid Rehousing Program and provides referrals to other agencies to help overcome other life obstacles.<br />

Rapid Rehousing Program provides training and financial assistance to families experiencing homelessness<br />

to secure a new permanent housing lease in their own name with minimal assistance. Once a new home is<br />

secured, HHH provides financial resources for application fees, move-in costs, and rental and utilities assistance<br />

for a limited time.<br />

Permanent Supportive Housing Program helps chronically homeless families in which a family member has a<br />

permanent disability. Unable to fully-support the entire cost of housing, the client family pays a portion of their<br />

monthly income toward rent. Additional support received is focused on enhancing the family’s career potential<br />

with the goal of assisting the family to attain as much self-sufficiency as possible.<br />

Church Council Highlights<br />

Pastor Amanda opened the meeting with a reading from<br />

John 9. Finding vision through the mud and relating it<br />

to the work of council.<br />

The ongoing review of ministry teams roles and duties<br />

was discussed with Church and Society being the focus.<br />

February giving was down. It was proposed that<br />

Stewardship address and check in with the congregation<br />

in <strong>April</strong>.<br />

There was discussion in regards to the ongoing leak<br />

with the fire suppression system. The parking lot has a<br />

few new areas of repair. Estimates are being gathered for<br />

both the parking lot and fire suppression.<br />

Altar Guild was blessed to support<br />

worship throughout Lent, Holy Week and<br />

Easter. Two new servers from the group<br />

of new members used their skills from their<br />

previous churches to serve and contributed<br />

beautifully. Thank you!<br />

Decorating the sanctuary with flowers was a time to rejoice as Karen Helmold coordinated<br />

the tulips and Janee Theleman and Leah Ramberg used their artistry to replace the darkness of<br />

Holy Week and Good Friday with the renewed life of spring in anticipation of the triumph of Jesus’<br />

victory over death on Easter Sunday.<br />

Easter was truly a time of celebration at Driftwood Point Park and at the church. Two of our<br />

own, Leslie Noborikawa and Leah Ramberg, stepped up to organize and lead the Easter Brunch.<br />

Thank you and to all those who contributed!<br />

We are delighted to serve and support Pastor Amanda and Pastor Horacio and know that<br />

more events like Confirmation and Pentecost are right around the corner. We are looking forward<br />

to spring and would love to add more members to our ranks, especially for the 11AM service.<br />

Recycle Your<br />

Ink Cartridges<br />

Don’t throw away those printer cartridges or used cell phones.<br />

The Youth will recycle them for you. It’s good for the<br />

environment and the youth program receives a small concession.<br />

Just deposit old cartridges in the drawer in the narthex.<br />
