Our Mission

What We Stand For

Ignite is the Jr. High Ministry of CCLG. We focus on serving students in 6th-8th grade and their families. We do this through weekly Bible study on Sunday mornings at 9 a.m., Wednesday night Youth Group at 6:30 p.m. and various events and activities throughout the year. If you are a student that is in Jr. High and are looking for a place to hang out with some cool people and learn about Jesus then Ignite is the place for you.

We Are Providing an Environment for Our Students to Grow & Connect

Ignite meets in the Youth Center in room 100 which is located on the first floor of Building A. We have couches and chairs for you to relax in, a microwave and refrigerator usually stocked with snacks and drinks. Come join us and start the spark of your journey learning about Jesus.

Parents, you are free to come to any Ignite event and observe what we are doing with your students. We also encourage you to take part in our church’s weekly Men’s and Women’s Bible studies happening just down the hall on Wednesday nights. There is even an area for childcare for your children who are not quite old enough to be in Ignite. If you have High School age students we have a place for them as well. Check out our Illuminate group.
