West CLS Calendar

Citylight Students (CLS) exists to disciple students in Knowing Jesus, Growing in Him, and Going out to share the Good News. As one church in two locations, we share mission and vision together. Be sure to sign up for our emails and check our calendars for specific times, dates, and locations at both the Midtown and West locations.

Rhythms

Our rhythms were designed in connection with our core values at Citylight Church: Down (Gospel), Up (Spiritual Formation), In (Community), Out (Mission).

Gatherings
Through our gatherings together, we will always point to the Gospel, the “good news” that God has reached down to us in his son, Jesus, to defeat sin and death and their effects in our world. Through his life, death, and resurrection, Jesus has initiated and accomplished what we never could. Through small group discussion and activities together, we focus on spiritual formation. We are committed to proclaiming the gospel not just as the front door to Christianity but as the good news that we live by every day.

City Groups
In our mid-week small groups, known as City Groups, we are building our relationships with both the Lord and with one another. Community is the context for gospel formation and mission.

Outreach
We want to go out on mission in our neighborhoods, schools, teams, and city. The same gospel that transforms us also compels us outward on mission. We want to be intentional about outreach, serving others and bringing hope to our city.

Summer Calendars

Citylight Students exists to multiply disciples and churches by equipping students and families to be lifelong followers of Jesus. We are one student ministry that meets in two locations with the following rhythms: As one church in two locations, we share mission and vision together. Be sure to sign up for our emails and check our calendars for specific times, dates, and locations at both the West and Midtown locations.

Meet: (Weekly)

We meet to see students begin a relationship with Christ and meet together as a group weekly for a time of singing, preaching, small groups, and stories of how God is moving in this generation. In our small groups, students will discuss the sermon and how they can put it into practice.

Mature: (Daily)

Our hope is to see students mature in Christ as they meet with Him daily and make disciples by participating on mission here and around the world. We desire for them to be equipped to read, understand, apply, and obey the Word of God in their lives. We want students to be involved in huddles in their schools or friend groups for accountability, to stay focused on following Christ, and set a pattern to be life long followers of Jesus.

Summer Calendars

This summer it is our hope to provide space and time for students to have both fellowship and fun. We hope that through these events a foundation will be formed and built on going into this next school year. Mark your calendars with these dates! Please don’t let finances or transportation stop your student from being involved.
