LCA! Studios is inspired, professional ministry and program for children and youth from birth through high school graduation and beyond. Here at LCA! Studios we’re almost all parents, so, you know, we get inexpressibly excited at the simple stuff – a baby’s first step; a child saying their prayers; a teen helping their grandma; a young adult getting their first real job. As such, we like to keep our ministry simple too. We have one unified “ministry” with three elements we hold dear and emphasize throughout. They’re easy to remember, and they’re true.
Our ministry is dedicated to bringing a detailed knowledge of the Bible, Scripture, and kingdom theology to children of all ages.
Children of all ages will be developed in their Spiritual Gifts, as well as their character, or “fruit.”.
(1 Cor. 12), (2 Peter 1)
We take everything we have learned and place it into action by blessing and serving the church and community.
Children from birth through fifth grade spend a short time in the overall Service to experience corporate worship before being dismissed to our “Backstage Studio Lot.” The Studio Lot is the place where classic 1940’s Hollywood meets the Bible in the fun and humorous world we created just for kids. The club includes drama, music, and a lot of funny characters that set the foundation for the in-class experiences they’ll have. (Nursery and toddler students go directly to our caring, screened, and trained staff for age appropriate lessons for the duration of the Service.) Then, preschoolers and kids to 5th grade don’t sit still – but go to three classes every week! You guessed it- they go to a “Lights” class, a “Camera” class, and an “Action” class. The kids get a chance to learn from teachers who specialize in their subject rather than trying to teach everything all at once.
Our Youth Ministry is dedicated to the same core principles of learning the Word, engaging with the Holy Spirit, and acting on our faith in creative ways. Development for our teens is all about experimentation, creativity and freedom!
“Bat” and “Bar” Barakah (Son/Daughter of blessing)
Every Sunday from mid-January to early December, our 12 and 13 year old students have a class during which they learn a 50 question catechism based on Kingdom Theology that guides them through various theological principles in Scripture. The class includes a lot of memorization and ministry inside and outside the church. The students who choose to put the time in to this are celebrated in December in a ceremony designed to emulate the Jewish “Bat” and “Bar” Mitzvah’s.
College-aged youth and young professionals ages 18-35 gather in Covenant Groups of their own throughout the city at various times and locations.
In addition, they also meet on the second and fourth Saturday evenings at the Worship Center from 6:30- 9p.m. for fellowship, coffee, connection, worship, and spiritual sharing.
LCA! Studios Young Adults don’t just choose a life, they live it…and they choose to do it together.

CCOP Missions is passionate about Jesus’ command, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Mk 16:15). We believe missions is the tangible demonstration of a loving relationship with God. It is a lifestyle of the church, both in the local region and beyond. God moves in relationships and He is blessed when we honor the uniqueness and cultural diversities of the people to whom we are called. We pursue God’s heart and develop gifts of creative expression in order to preach the Gospel and share the healing love of Jesus. We pray, sow, go, and support a variety of local and international missions.
