CLA Kids

CLA Kids is a ministry to family life. We seek to reach the hearts of children by caring for the whole family. It is our goal through child centred programming to encourage children to grow in body, soul, mind and spirit, so they can know God fully.

Operating as usual

If you don’t know, here at CLA we have a leadership course for young leaders called “LEADYOUNG”! Pictured here are some crazy middle-schoolers who already possess an aptitude for leadership! And many of them are in their last module and will have over 64 hours of leadership training.

God is raising up young leaders to take their spot in the world, not for the future, but for now! And you know what, we are so thankful for that! Thankful for parents who bring them out week after week, thankful for young leaders who are keen on growing and thankful for their coaches who teach them sacrificial, and thankful for an opportunity to lead as servant leaders in God’s kingdom! The future is bright!

Worship Wednesday!

God loves you. Do you believe it?

Today I (Allie) am so thankful for a God who never gives up on me, who will chase me to the ends of the Earth, and who holds me tightly and reminds me I am loved, and I am His. Would you join me today in worshipping a God who loves you and is worthy of being loved in return?

Jesus was such a great teacher! He used the circumstances that these new disciples understood best to help them understand what following him was going to like. How did Jesus invite you to follow him. Why don't you share that story with your children today?

Yesterday we learnt that Jesus was our leader. Have a dinnertime discussion with your family, ask: how can Jesus be your leader this week? Take turns answering by going around the table and remember to pray together as a family!

Who Is Jesus?

Journey with us over nine episodes to discover Who Is Jesus? with the help of our new friends, Nick O’Demus and Maggie Dalene!

This week we embrace Jesus as our leader. He calls each and every one of us to make a choice, beyond just being a believer, but truly being a disciple of Jesus. What does it mean to be a disciple? To follow him wholeheartedly, even if that means sacrifice. In today’s culture, comfort is celebrated over calling. As parents we have to ask ourselves are we setting up our children for a life of comfort, or a life of calling? As a parent I have to evaluate, do I lead a life 100% sold out to what God is asking me to do? Let’s help our children follow Jesus anywhere he asks us to go, by leading by example!

Our popular culture is infatuated with the Superhero and Comic Book world. The impossible occurs enough in our ordinary daily lives that the idea that someone with superpowers could come and fix them is enticing. So, it’s pretty tempting for us to hang out in the world of pretend heroes to escape our difficult problems and rather ordinary lives. Watching movies isn’t a sin, but if it begins to erode our faith in God’s omnipotence (all-powerfulness), it could need some rethinking.

Where do we learn about what’s powerful? Curiously, 1 Corinthians 13 has a lot to say about our love of power and special abilities. Listen to these phrases: “if I could speak all the languages of earth and angels,” “If I understood all God’s secret plans and knowledge,” “if I had such faith that I could move mountains.” Those descriptions sound a little like the superpowers we crave, don’t they? But what does Paul say is the real superpower? That’s right, love. But do we really believe it? I think we would if we understood that love is God’s most powerful gift to us, rather than allowing culture to reduce our understanding of love to some insipid sentimental notion.

On this Sabbath Saturday after a week that began with Valentine’s Day, let these words of truth revive your definition of love. “Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. (1 Corinthians 13: 4-7). Go on, put your cape on and use your God given superpower today.

Meet our friends the Reimer family: Joel, Avin, Mya, Abigail and Joshua! Joel is on staff as the Recovery Church pastor and Avin juggles all things Reimer household. Mya has done a great job this year of sharing her faith at school and as a family, the Reimers have shared our children’s ministry content in order to help share the Gospel to their friends and neighbours.

Would you consider sharing a link, sending a post and inviting someone to participate in church? It might just change a life.

Today we are thankful for Shirley Fawdrey! Shirley is one of those individuals that is a heavy lifter behind the scenes. She isn’t big on the spotlight, but has a big heart for CLA Kids. Before the pandemic Shirley would keep us organized, sorting and putting away supplies in a resource room, a place that can be a less than desirable to spend time in. She sorted through classroom after classroom keeping us ahead of the game. Honestly, Shirley is a godsent to a team that is constantly moving and making a mess! Not only does she keep us organized but we feel so loved with her notes of encouragement. Thanks Shirley, you are a gift!

Worship Wednesday!

This pandemic has been a season of various disappointments for us all. Today, let’s hold to the truth that God’s love stays with us wherever we go. His love is persistent, never far a won’t let you down.

Are you needing a reason, a “why” to show your love to others? The reason is Jesus. He loved us first, well and generously. Try this today — show your love to others first, before they give you a reason. Say “I love you” first; do the messy job that needs to be done before anyone else can get to it; let that speedy driver be first, move into the slow lane; pick up the phone and be the first one to open that hard conversation that needs to happen. Find out how it opens your heart to love.

Want to show your neighbours some love today? Give them a “Heart Attack”! All you have to do is cut out hearts of various sized and write kind messages for your neighbours, then tape all your messages to their door.

Head over to our Pinterest to see a template with some ideas under “Valentine’s Day Activities” and don’t forget to tag us in pictures of your “Heart Attacks”!

Valentine's Day Special ♥️

The Bible is full of references about love and Valentine's Day seems to be the perfect time to talk about it! Join us today as we learn how much God loves us and how that love means we can love God and others too.

How are your spiritual muscles feeling? Strong and well exercised, or weak and flabby? Like the muscles in our physical body spiritual muscles need to work to stay fit and able. Spiritual disciplines, like prayer, reading the Bible, fasting, solitude, silence and yes, even celebration are ways to strengthen your spiritual muscles deliberately and purposefully. But God also chooses to form us spiritually through the challenges, circumstances and events of our ordinary everyday life as well.

In the book of James we’re asked to take an unusual perspective on these kinds of difficulties. He says, “…whenever you face trials of any kind, consider it nothing but JOY, because you know the testing of your faith produces endurance…” (1:2-4). James knows that God has more for us than that top layer of pain attached to whatever we’ve had to face in our lives offers. And enduring — holding on, staying put, resisting, persisting, insisting, getting up, going on, standing strong, or just standing does more than just build spiritual muscles, it releases joy.

On this Sabbath Saturday, still yourself in the presence of God and let that joy rise to the surface. It will be what could not be silenced, eliminated, put down or covered up by the harshness, pain, loss, of whatever you suffered. It’s what made the writer of Hebrews exclaim about Jesus: “For the joy set before him he endured the cross…” (12:2) Joy is the gift of God’s presence and it’s what keeps us growing.

Introducing Gord and Marie Krogel and their three boys, Joshua, Anthony and Lucas! Marie and the boys have served CLA Kids so much in the past, which we are so grateful for! We love when families serve together. But I just wanted to feature the Krogels this week, because we are highlighted in our Sunday Kid’s Church, the GROW part of our CLA values. Over the 21 days of Prayer and Fasting, the Krogel family night after night would show up on the zoom prayer meetings to pray together. It just touched my (Jenni’s) heart to see this family seated in their kitchen, night after night, joining in with other prayer warriors to pray with and for each other. The Krogel family is definitely growing in their walk with God together!

Meet Violet Nesdoly. Violet has been a consistent contributor to CLA Kids for the past 3 years. She wasn’t teaching in our classrooms, but she wrote our “Hurry to Bethlehem” picture book we gave away 3 years ago, and she painted the watercolors for a Missions book we produced for our preschool classes last year. She’s a creative chameleon, able to gift her talents in writing, art and experience with joy. Thank you Violet! We’re looking forward to our next collaboration

Do you have some talents you’d like to gift to Kids Min? We’d be glad to hear from you!

Worship Wednesday!

This week is all about growing - growing in your faith and in your relationships. This is the life we get to live, one where growth is not only allowed but encouraged. Take some time to worship and reflect, what has God grown in you lately?

Get some soil, a pot and a small plant. Transplant it together as a family. Talk through the memory verse segment using the real plant. Make keeping the plant healthy and growing a family project connected to your growth together in faith.

YOU Are The Church!

Growing in grace happens as we pay attention, intentionally engage with God’s word and follow where the Spirit is leading us. It’s an interactive activity for your whole family.

[02/06/21]   The Gospel is the good news about Jesus. It’s the knowledge that all have fallen short of God’s glory or, sinned against his holiness (Romans 3:23). Yet the proof of God’s love for us remains, that while we were still sinners, Christ Jesus died for us (5:8). If we accept Christ’s gift, even though the wages of our sin should be our death, we receive instead eternal life through Jesus. When we confess this truth believing completely that God did raise Jesus from the dead we are saved! (Rom 10:9)
*
As these truths sink deeper into our souls, we understand why Paul boldly declares, “I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes…” (1:16), like he’s submitting his frontpage headline over all the other good, bad or indifferent news of the day. The lines above are nuggets mined from his letter to the Romans that contains all that’s essential, vibrant and transformative in the Gospel: sin, grace, righteousness, life in the Spirit, love, faith, faithfulness, and future glory. Paul writes all this eloquence not to win a Pulitzer prize but so that we will know the Love of God because, “If God is for us, then who can be against us?” (8:31). That’s the power of God in us because of salvation. Surely this kind of news is worth sharing.
*
On this Sabbath Saturday, consider where you can headline the Good News of Jesus. It might be in conversation with a friend or a neighbour as you enjoy each other’s company. It might take the form of something you share on social media that shows concern for others and invites good dialogue and engagement. It might be a change you make in the way your family lives the gospel by moving toward simplicity or increasing acts of justice and mercy for others. Let the Spirit draw these responses from the way the Gospel is transforming you.

Meet the Erringtons! Ross and Ellen are Global Workers with Wycliffe Bible Translators. They know what it means to GO! They are living out the Great Commission. After many years of consulting with other field projects in Asia in the areas of translation and literacy, they have now returned to the project in which they began. Currently, they serve as advisors to the mother tongue translators who are diligently working to make the entire Bible available to their Manobo community in the Philippines. Ellen also serves in the nursery for CLA Kids and in this last year the two of them were often found packing a summer camp box or serving at ESL or on a zoom prayer meeting interceding for the church! These two have given their life for the gospel in big and small ways! One day I want to grow up to be just like them!

Introducing Rochelle Sammel! A beautiful woman of God who has faithfully served as a teacher in our kindergarten class for about 2 years before COVID hit, and she serves as a nurse on the frontline during these challenging times! But the exciting part is God is calling her to GO…to leave Langley and to go to Mexico and serve in some exciting ways that will bless and rescue children! Rochelle is being obedient to the call of God on her life and we wanted to celebrate her commitment and obedience before she leaves! May God go with you Rochelle and bless everything you set your hand to do! In Jesus’ name!

Worship Wednesday!

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I’m sure you’ve seen stores chalk full of decorations and heart shaped things. Take some time today to be reminded of God’ love, REAL LOVE.

Why not pray together in the car on your way to school with your children, about the people who need to hear about Jesus. Ask for opportunities to tell a story of Jesus with someone.

YOU Are The Church!

Did you know that as a church, we support over 40 combined global workers, projects and ministries per year. Our vision is to reach beyond the walls of our church and make an impact on our world in practical and spiritual ways. Missions is simply that, a mission to show God's love to the world. Showing that love can look different in every culture and situation, and in every unique need. This week, we talk about what it means to GO as we meet Paul and find out more about his missionary journeys.

Do you know which spiritual gifts are active in you? That is, the ways in which the Holy Spirit works through you to strengthen others in their faith and formation in Christ Jesus? For some it can be quite straight forward. They know they’re often needed to encourage someone, or recognise that when they pray for healing, people receive healing. But for others, it’s less clear, and that confusion can result in feelings of timidity, fear of looking silly or making a mistake.

We work out what our spiritual giftings are, not by taking a test, (although they do exist!), or by engaging in formal studies (you can, of course do this), but by simply and actively serving one another. The Apostle Paul explained to the Galatians that their freedom in Christ was not “…an opportunity for self-indulgence”, but an opportunity to “serve one another through love” (5:13). When we freely walk in the Spirit, the fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, etc.. (cf. Gal 5:22) is gifted to others through us with the divine help of the Spirit. It practice it looks like: prophecy, words of knowledge and wisdom, gifts of helps, healing, teaching, pastoring, discernment, administration and all manner of other ways. Remember we serve a creative God!

On this Sabbath Saturday, if you want to learn more about your spiritual gifts and how to use them, seek out one of our senior saints who has faithfully explored, nurtured and practiced walking in the Spirit for decades. We will leave a great gift unwrapped, if we don’t pursue, listen and apply the lessons women and men older than us in the faith and in life have learned. Is there a senior or a grandparent who would begin a prayer partnership with you or your family, so you can deepen your faith journey?
