Parents

First off, thank you for what you do. As your children are pulled in a million different directions, you are also pulled in a million different directions. I hope that you will view our programs at CLC as more than just ‘one more thing’. A strong Christian foundation has a lasting impact on young people and will guide them through a lifetime of experiences – good and bad. We, as a church, want to love and support your whole family! You are welcome to contact Clint Mullet, the Director of Youth Ministries, with any inquires or questions at clint.mullet(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)clcvalpo.org
