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.

"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

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.
