Pastor Janell Bethke comes to Creator Lutheran Church where her ministry is appreciated. After the sudden death of Pastor Ray McKechnie, and the onset of physical distancing and closure of all public meetings due to Corona Virus and Covid-19, Creator is meeting and worshiping virtually.
Pastor Janell brings a wealth of experience and a heart of welcome and compassion to her call here at Creator and the Creator community is grateful for her presence with us at this time.
