Programming resumes Sunday, September 15th.  Programming is FREE to all participants.  Registration is appreciated but not required.  Registration will open in August.

Sunday 9:45-10:35 am (Sept.-May)
Sunday mornings will be structured to help the 6th -12th graders of CCLC transition from the traditional Sunday School classes of childhood to independent leadership and fellowship in our congregation.  Programming will vary from structured Bible Lessons, to learning "How To" usher, serve communion, teach, etc., to free time to enjoy the activities available in the youth room (foosball, crafts, games, and more).  Youth who are interested will have the opportunity teach Sunday School.  

Confirmation Faith Inkubators - Wednesday 6:30pm (Sept.-May)
6th-8th graders meet on Wednesday night at 6:30pm for lessons that combine current life with Biblical truths. It features art, music, skits, and gameshows, while building lasting caring relationships at church.  

Youth Events
We have several youth events throughout the year for ages 6th-12th grade.  This includes bonfires, in-church game nights, laser tag, Feed My Starving Children, skiing and much more!   Watch our home page or check the calendar for dates.

Youth Summer
Each summer our youth participate in camps or trips to grow in faith and connect with our Christian community.  Camp experiences include Luther Crest Bible Camp or Klein Ranch.  For our high school youth, depending on the year, we've done mission trips and participated in the ELCA National Youth Gathering. 

Vacation Bible School 
We join together with Peace Lutheran to host an amazing week of uplifting music, engaging Bible stories, inventive crafts, delicious snacks, exciting games, and so much more!  Kids 6th grade and older can volunteer to help lead.  This event is usually held in June, Monday through Thursday, from 9:00am - 12:00pm.  SCUBA VBS will be held at CCLC from Monday, June 24th - Thursday, June 27th.

Luther Crest Bible Camp
Kids 3rd grade and older have the opportunity to take their faith to the next level at Luther Crest Bible Camp.  Youth in 6th-9th grade participate as Witnesses and get to try their hand at the high ropes course and spend one night off site.  Youth in senior high can get service and leadership training through their Blazers program.  An adult from our congregation stays on site while the amazing camp staff leads the kids through worship, music, swimming, crafts, and so much more!  Registration takes place in the fall/winter for dates in July or August.  Please email Jenna at for more information.
