Welcome to our Fall Kick Off weekend!
As with most of life right now, things will be different this fall. However, there remains many Kingdom opportunities for every one and certainly ways to grow deeper in faith and relationship with Christ. This weekend we are changing our service times, hosting a Welcome to Church Party and there are Food Trucks on site Sunday in Langley.
Service Times (online)
Although there are a dozen 50 or less gatherings each week at CLA, the Sunday Worship Hour remains online only. Because it takes up to 20 people to produce a Sunday morning, it leaves very little room for people to join us. In addition, the cleaning required is cost prohibitive. However, there will be live worship gatherings at all 3 of our campuses this fall. In Langley our live worship service for 50 will be Wednesday nights and in Maple Ridge it will be Sunday nights. It will be important to follow the Covid-19 protocols and pre-register for these evenings.
- This week we launch a Sunday Kids Ministry component at 9:40 AM. This will be followed by our live (online) Sunday Celebration service at 10 AM. After 11 AM, it will be on demand via our website (clachurch.com) any time you would like it. You can move the timeline button on the screen to adjust your viewing, if you choose to move past the Kids Ministry component and go straight to worship you can do that.
- Interaction during the service continues. Please share prayer requests with us so we can be praying for you using the Facebook Messenger icon on the screen. Also, if you are new to CLA, click the “I’m New” icon and send us a note. We would love to have you at the Welcome to Church Party. In fact, even if you did not have a chance to sign up for this Sunday’s party, you can still come and sign in at the 12 PM lunch. I would love to meet you.

I’m so grateful for your prayers and financial support. Do you know that our July Covid 19 giving was higher than last July? It’s true. Our church family is with us during this tough time. Thank you. Please remain faithful. As God has provided for me, I also want to partner with Him to advance The Kingdom of God. We can give online any time. We can also text to give OR you can send your tithes directly to the church by mail or drop off at our office Monday to Friday (9 am to 5 pm). Our address is 21277 56 Ave, Langley BC V2Y 1M3.
Each Sunday I see some of you in your lawn chairs watching the service and enjoying fellowship. I love to hear about these watch parties! Stay safe, stay connected and remember we need each other.
