September is Upon Us!


Next week is the Labour Day long weekend and it signals a return to fall routines. Next Sunday we return to our regular two Sunday am services, at 9 & 11 AM. Each Sunday CLA hosts 5 services in 3 campuses, gathering guests and providing ministry for our church family of over 3,000. Pray for our fall ministries as they launch into a new season. Online at check out our campuses and congregations. If you have questions about these important gatherings contact their overseeing pastor.
