Through our ministries, we are able to offer programs that nurture the wellbeing of local youth during after school hours.


Our nutrition program, a partnership with the Department of Human Services’ Children and Adult Feeding Program and the Tennessee Department of Education’s School Nutrition Program, provides breakfast, lunch, supper and a snack daily to local students. CLI also gives children and youth backpacks filled with nine non-perishable meals that provide nourishment through the weekend because of its partnership with the Mid-South Food Bank’s Backpack Program.  During the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, CLI gifts families food baskets thanks to its partnership with Feed the Needy. 

Transportation Ministry

Creative Life provides transportation to students of local area schools as well as children in its child care program. The transportation program is also responsible for field trips, college tours and other student-related trips.
