Life can get busy, and despite our best intentions, finding time to commit to a course or group for multiple weeks can be difficult. This year, we’re going to try something new – Saturday School! This is for all those who are interested in a one-day learning experience; a day with several course options available for your faith development and spiritual growth. There is even a course option and childcare available for your children!
All courses will start at the same time and share in a common lunch meal together.
Saturday School is on Saturday, March 7, with all classes starting at 9 AM.
Find out who we are and your place at CLA.
If you’ve been around Christian Life Assembly, even for a brief time, you have probably heard that we are together on mission as a church joining God in transforming our lives, neighbourhoods, nation and world. To accomplish our God-sized mission, we are calling all who call CLA their church home to Gather, Grow, Serve and Go.
What does that mean and how exactly do we hope to accomplish our mission? Join us in discovering what lies at the very heart of CLA and how you can get involved. The Discovery Class is a four-week course for newcomers, taught on a monthly rotation by CLA pastors who are passionate about helping CLA Gather, Grow, Serve and Go.
Our next four week session begins February 2.
Explore life, faith and meaning in a friendly, open and informal environment through a series of interactive sessions. All sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to connect, relax and build friendships. The talks are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. But probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas about the talk without being corrected or judged. There’s no obligation to say anything; it’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective.
Our next Alpha 11 week course begins Wednesday, January 15 at 6:30 PM.

Community Bible Study for Women
This Fall we will start with the book of Genesis. The substance of Genesis lies in its timeless themes: God's mighty power and greatness, God's love for His creation and His grace toward fallen mankind. In its pages, human dignity and purpose, mankind's rebellion and judgment and forgiveness by means of a promised Redeemer are revealed at the very beginning of history - in the Garden of Eden. Though Noah's Flood wiped out one sinful generation, after the Flood, people still rejected God and built the Tower of Babel. God's redemptive plan continued to play out in the formation of the Hebrew nation. The lives of the Patriarchs are traced with the great stories of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph and the sojourn of the Hebrew nation in Egypt. The book of Genesis displays God's holiness and faithfulness, and His patient development of mankind's faith in a coming Messiah.
Tuesdays, beginning January 28 at 9:30 AM | East Chapel
