CLA Preaching and Teaching Ministry

New to CLA or Planning to be our Guest?

CLA is a great place to meet new friends, find needed encouragement and discover God’s plan for your life. Let us prepare you for your first worship service with us. As our guest, we want you to feel informed. We know it’s tough to try anything new, especially a new church. Take a (humorous) look at some of the views some guests have of attending a new church for the first time in the video below and then check out some FAQ’sbelow.

Where can I park?

Parking and Entrances
CLA has accessible parking for guests and families with infants. These spaces are located closest to the main entrances and are clearly marked for your convenience.

Our canopied side entrance is the main entrance. You are also welcome to enter the double door entrance at the rear parking lot.

 

What does CLA have for my children?

Childcare
CLA childcare is available every Sunday morning and evening, as well as every Wednesday evening. Our childcare is located in the main educational wing at the side entrance from the parking area.

Children’s Church
Children 10 and under are invited to attend CLA KIDZ, a kid-friendly worship service. Children will enter the sanctuary with their parent and be formally dismissed from the main service with caring leaders and supervision.

 

What can I expect while I’m there?

Guest Services
You will be welcomed by one of guest services greeters and given a bulletin for that Sunday. They will also help you with locations for everything including restrooms, how to find the sanctuary, what’s available for your children, and even where to get a great cup of coffee.
Inside the bulletin is our communication card.  We use this card to receive prayer requests, update contact information, and provide a way for others to let us know how things are going on their journey with Christ.

How long?
Our morning worship celebration lasts between 75 and 90 minutes. We begin at 10:45 AM and are usually dismissed by noon. Worship Style CLA’s worship style blends contemporary music with traditional hymns.  Many of the songs we sing are in the style of Chris Tomlin, Hillsong and Jesus Culture.

CLA members also express worship through offerings. This is our opportunity to cheerfully give back to God the finances He has blessed us with. Of course, we will never pressure guests to give and realize that all giving is a matter between an individual and Christ. Our Pastor will deliver a message designed to communicate the truth of Scripture and how that truth can be applied to our lives in the 21st Century.

We strongly believe that God’s Word is for transformation, not just information. Our Pastor, at the end of his message, will give the congregation an opportunity to personally reflect and respond.  Sometimes he will ask us to respond by lifting a hand or standing.  If you do not feel comfortable responding in that manner then marking the communication card is always an appropriate response. Simply fill out your card, turn it over, and place it on your seat to be picked up by a member of our staff. Our Pastor will also invite anyone who would like specific prayer to come and receive prayer. He will conclude the service and dismiss us with prayer.

Can I listen to a service before I come?

We invite you to watch or listen to our sermons online. You will find them practical and relevant to your life and family, but remember that there is nothing like experiencing God’s presence with others, live. You can find the most current sermon here. Some of our other sermons can be found here.

 

How should I dress?

 

At CLA, people dress in a wide range of attire.  Most, however, dress casual. We want you to be comfortable.

Our Beliefs

More About Us

We are...

Pentecostal

CLA is a member of the Assemblies of God fellowship. We embrace the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the full complement of Spiritual gifts and the fruit of the Holy Spirit
(1Corinthians 12-14, Romans 12, Ephesians 4:11-14).

Evangelical

CLA places a high priority on the inspiration of Scripture and its mission to bring people to a saving, personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe each person may have a direct relationship with God based on Jesus’ death on the cross.

Trinitarian

We believe that God exists in three distinct persons — the Father, Son (Jesus), and Holy Spirit. We believe all three are alive and at work today. We also believe this God of three persons is the one and only true God
(Matthew 28:9; 2Corinthians 13:14).

Ephesians 2.19

“So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household.”

Ephesians 2.19 (NAS95)
