We believe that Jesus Christ came to reveal the fullness of God's love for us. We celebrate that love through praise, sacraments, music, service, and aspiring to be a totally inclusive community.
Our worship is at heart of who we are. The Creator congregation believes that in all our actions and in our presence in the world we can show we are one part of the body of Christ
Our church offers a wide range of ministries and opportunities to connect. Whether you'd like to learn more, pray more, sing more, or serve more, there is a ministry for you. Use the items under the We're Involved menu item above for details of how we are involved in our community, together with our partners, and in the world.

Oregon Remembrance Project Memorial on Juneteenth
Upcoming support for the Oregon Remembrance Project, which on June 19th, will be erecting a memorial in Coos Bay to Alonzo Tucker, the one African American lynched in Oregon. Partnering with Bryan Stevenson's Equal Justice Initiative, they hope to have more folks attending the installation of the memorial marker than the 300 who attended the lynching in 1902.
