Pastor Janell Monk arrived as interim pastor after the sudden death of Pastor Ray McKechnie, and the onset of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Her ministry at Creator Lutheran Church is appreciated as we continue to meet and worship on-line, imagine Hybrid Church, prepare for re-opening, and seek our next called pastor.
Pastor Janell brings a wealth of experience and a heart of welcome and compassion to her call. The Creator community is grateful for her presence with us.
