Important Update on 2024 Summer Caravans

Camp Courageous: July 7-13

NEW Camp Courageous Work Trip: July 21-27

We understand it is challenging to schedule your summer but we have reworked our summer program in hopes of reaching more students while also continuing to provide quality short-term mission experiences! We are still moving forward with the original dates for Camp Courageous where students will be assistant counselors from July 7-13.

We are also offering a NEW Caravan, July 21-27 where we will return to Camp Courageous but this time as a work crew! We are putting a new twist on a CPC tradition of taking a work caravan to Camp Courageous. We will return to a place we love in order to help in a new way by bettering the grounds and helping behind the scenes to ensure Camp Courageous remains the most magical place on earth!


If you have not already registered for caravans, fill out the new form below and turn it in by May 5! If you have registered for one or two caravans, please share with Pastor Susan whether you can make the new dates work this summer! Looking forward to another fabulous summer on Caravans!

Come out for another celebration Sunday at CPC on June 2nd!

Are you looking for a group where literature and Biblical discussion come together? This curious and insightful group meets at CPC from 9:00 - 10:30 am on Thursdays from September to the end of May. They begin each meeting by sharing life updates, joys and concerns and then pray together (20 minutes) and then we discuss the reading for 70 minutes.

Presby Pickleball

Here's a way to have some fun, meet other Presbyterians and get exercise: PICKLEBALL! 


This is what happens when Presbyterian pastors get together at an installation. They dream, "hey, let's start a church pickleball league!" And so we have. It's easy. 


Download the app: TeamReach(on Apple or Android) Enter Group Code: PCUSAPickleball. 


Now you're in a group of folks from Western Springs Presbyterian Church, Riverside Presbyterian Church, and CPC who are up for pickleball. You'll receive notice when folks are getting together to play! And you can initiate a gathering of folks to play. See you on the courts!
