Pursue the Promises

Walk with us throughout 2024 focused on the promises of God!

One of CLA’s core values is Biblical Teaching. The Bible provides practical daily guidance for living – it guides, corrects and encourages us to live in a way that honors the Lord. We believe all the answers to living a godly life can be found in the Bible.

Throughout 2024, every Monday morning by 7:00 AM, we will post a new video from Pastor Shane or an article written by a member of our staff that connects to that month’s featured promise.
We will share devotions with life application suggestions and practical tips, link to additional resources for you to explore, share encouragement through stories, and more.

Will you walk with us this year focused on the promises of God? He is so faithful!

We Sow Our Prayers Like Seeds
April 29th, 2024
With April coming to a close and gardens in full bloom, Melissa Ball paints a vivid picture. Similar to how we tend a garden, we sow our prayers like seeds.
