Sports and Special Events

The CLC occasionally hosts special events throughout the year. Races, dodgeball nights, basketball leagues, cheer camps, we open our doors to events that influence our community.

Trips for Kids Bike Drive

Trips for Kids is a national organization that provides a selection of programs like Trail Rides, Earn-a-Bike and the Re-Cyclery Bike Shop for kids. Shades is hosting a bike drive to help them collect gently used bicycles for their re-cyclery. Bikes will be accepted at the Community Life Center daily from 8a-8p during the week of August 13-21. Any donations will be given a tax voucher, if desired, and will be used to educate local children through their Earn-a-Bike program. Children come to the bike shop and are taught how to care for a bicycle, how to properly ride, give service hours at Christian Service Mission, and earn a bicycle at the completion of this program. 

For more information, please email Felecia Dewing at or check out Trips for Kids' website.
