Youth Group (Middle & High School)

Ripple Effect Clearwater Church Youth Group

Middle School and High School youth meet on Sundays from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in the Lodge (downstairs at Clearwater). Our weekly group combines relevant messages with purposeful, fun events and community outreach to equip middle and high school students to impact their schools, their homes and their world for Christ as well as sending out and creating disciples for the next generation (Matt. 28:16-24). Dinner is provided. For more information, please email Cynthia Lane or Zach Ailes.

How can I support the Youth Ministry?


Bring in your recycled metal and Clearwater Youth will get the proceeds!

Take your scrap metal (including aluminum cans) to:
Colorado Iron and Metal
903 Buckingham Street (near Lemay and Vine)
Fort Collins, CO 80524

1) Weigh in your vehicle loaded with the steel as you enter the property (a large platform that will weigh your vehicle)
2) Empty your vehicle inside the metal yard
3) Weight OUT your empty vehicle as you exit
4) Park and go into the office on the way out and just say “I want to donate this load to Clearwater Church”

ALL OTHER METAL (aluminum, copper, brass, etc)

1) Pull into the property and park at the LARGE OPEN GARAGE DOORS. Do not weigh in on the scale!
2) The men there will gladly help you unload your donation!
3) Tell the men weighing your load “I want to donate this load to Clearwater Church”

Our church then gets a check from them every month and 100% of your donation goes to help our youth ministry!

Some may ask “what does the youth ministry do with these funds we raise? Good question! Primarily, we use them to help students that cannot afford to go to camps, conferences, concerts, and other Christian events we attend as a ministry. Without our help, some students could not attend these sometimes life-changing events! Also, we sometimes experience unexpected or un-budgeted expenses and need a little extra boost to pay for them. Every dime is a blessing and we THANK YOU for considering us in your giving throughout the year. Checks can also be made out to “Clearwater Church” with “youth ministry” in the memo. God bless you as you give!
