A Word from the Pastor
Hi CLA Families,
I’m honored to announce another exciting CLA Kids event that’s just around the corner. Introducing Kids’ Camp 2021 – Under Construction…Building God’s Way! This year we’re digging around in 1 and 2 Samuel, the story of David, from shepherd boy to warrior-king. We’ll be learning that we’re all under construction because the good work that God starts within us, he promises to bring to completion in Christ Jesus.
As David’s relationship with God developed, God built confidence, faith, and character into him to shape him into a fantastic builder for God’s Kingdom. David’s obedience paved the way for the King of kings and Lord of lords – Jesus, to bring God’s Kingdom to earth. And now every one of God’s children can become Kingdom builders too.
Each day the Holy Spirit will guide us to lay the roadwork needed to build confidence, faith and character in our children so that they will build solid friendships that support them to become Kingdom builders too!
Due to COVID restrictions camp will be live and in-person; but run creatively using a hybrid model combining our regular summer camp and last year’s camp-in-a-box formats. We are creating 500 camp-in-a-box Under Construction kits, complete with snacks, workbook, game supplies, water bottle, mask, items to build a toolbox and so much more. This will ensure that each child has their own personal supplies to have fun with and stay safe. No items will be shared during the day but additionally, if a child is unable to attend due to illness, or if restrictions shut us down, every child can still participate at home. Camp registration will be $40 before June 15. and $50 after. Camp will run mornings and afternoons at both campuses and will consist of groups of 40 children, 10 staff and volunteers who will all be together for the duration of the week.
- July 12-16 - Up to 160 children in Langley – mornings and afternoon slots available.
- July 19-23 – Up to 160 children in Langley – Bus Ministry week – sponsorships needed!
- July 26-30 – Up to 80 children in Maple Ridge – morning and afternoon slots available.
We have about 75% availability left but morning slots are limited. So don’t delay in signing your child or grandchild up at clachurch.com/kids. If you want to sponsor a child, you can do so online, under Bus Ministry camp sponsorships here or text 'camp' to 84321.
This is my prayer for all of us, that God will continue to build us up to be men and women that lead in our families, our workplaces, and our communities. I pray that we become men and women who invest in the next generation through spiritual parenting, grandparenting, mentorship, as teachers and prayer warriors and as financial investors because when we disciple children, we teach them to be disciple makers too.
We are better together,
Family Life Pastor
