CLA Youth is a place where youth (grades 6-12) belong, feel at home and are part of our family. We believe that God has instilled in each of our students the incredible capability to lead – regardless of age (1 Timothy 4:12). This means that our students can exceed in life knowing that God has an amazing plan for them.

In addition to Sunday services and Wednesday gatherings, we offer various opportunities for our youth to grow and have fun throughout the year – from special Bible studies to bowling to Youth Camp.

Youth Convention

Youth, you don’t want to miss PennDel Youth Convention 2021 at the Kalahari Resort in the Poconos from October 15-17. This fun-filled weekend with friends will include powerful worship, challenging messages and an amazing waterpark experience!

"There is nothing like throwing dodgeballs and spending time praying with students, all in the same night. And seeing their eyes open to the movement of Jesus is amazing!"

- Pastor Adam Olson, Student Pastor

Sunday Services

Wednesday Gatherings

Serving at and attending a Sunday morning service is vital in the lives of our students – we call it "serve one, sit one."

Students are encouraged to serve during one morning service and attend during our other service in the main Sanctuary. We invite them to sit together in the student section during the service they attend, where they learn through practical, Biblical teaching.

Serving is the heart of God, and instilling a love of serving helps young people develop a passion for the church. It's easy to get involved, and there are many opportunities to pick from, such as with Media, Worship, Hospitality and CLA Kids. Contact us to learn more and sign up.
We meet every Wednesday at 6:30 PM in the Youth Center. We want to ensure that our youth have the best possible experience getting to know others, growing in their relationship with Jesus and having fun!

We offer a fantastic first-time guest experience for our new guests to get connected to others right away. Youth experience large-group worship, relevant and Biblical teaching, games, and lively discussion in small groups (divided by age and gender) that address their real-life challenges.
