CPC COVID-19 Preparedness Worship Plans

Moving to virtual worship on March 22 and March 29 at 9:30 am

Sunday School and Cubes on hiatus as of March 22

We are working to put measures in place for worship on March 22 and March 29 to be offered via a virtual gathering platform. In other words, we will livestream worship, audio AND visual. The Thursday email blast will include instructions on how to join in the virtual worship for March 22.  Virtual worship will be offered at 9:30 am on March 22 and March 29.  Worship will also be recorded so that you may watch worship at any time you wish. The body of Christ will gather and worship, albeit from our homes.

Middle School Sunday School

9:00 am on Sunday Mornings

Our 6th-8th graders begin worship with the adults for about the first 40 minutes. They’re then dismissed to the CPC Youth Lounge for Sunday School. Our time concludes at 10:30am, which is about 15-20 minutes after our adult worship service ends. This way:


1. We can have a better middle school small group experience and more time to accomplish our relational work and mentoring with these amazing young people.

2. It positions middle school parents in a place where they’re more likely to chat and connect with each other organically (probably in Fellowship Hall) as they wait for their youth to finish.


While your middle schooler is in Sunday School they will be experiencing customized middle school curriculum based on the key scriptures and stories shared from our pastors each Sunday. There will be a middle school specific discussion guide, fun group building activities, further scriptures to study, and time to discuss questions.

CPC Middle School Retreat

March 1st - 3rd, 2020 will be our CPC Middle School Retreat! Registration due Feb 14!

We’re headed to Lake Geneva Youth Camp. Specifically, we’ll be headed to their Conference Point Center right on beautiful Lake Geneva. Further info and registration will be shared in early 2019, but for now… please mark your calendars! This will be an exciting weekend for any and all middle schoolers, and one that has the potential to be very impactful! Sacred moments tend to occur when youth have the chance to retreat with their peers and adult leaders in order to focus on their faith in God and on their relationships with each other.


Middle School Ministry on Wednesday Nights at CPC (5:30 pm - 7:45 pm) beginning October 9, 2019

Are you looking for a church connection for your middle school-aged children mid-week? Starting October 3rd, we’re kicking off our mid-week middle school experience at CPC called Endeavor! Please know that your child doesn’t need to attend Sunday School Middle School at CPC to participate.


Endeavor offers 3 separate 7 week sessions between October and April. There is a small fee.  And just like all of our youth activities here, you don’t need to be a member at CPC to participate!

An average night at Endeavor will go like this:

-   5:30 pm - Arrival and Creative Arts time (music, singing, skits, poetry, and more)

-   6:00 pm - Dinner (joined with Aspire, our 2nd-5th grade ministry)

-   6:45 pm - A mixture of games, activities, sharing, and learning from the bible in the Youth Lounge! Expect some variety!

-   7:45 pm - Sending Forth

We’ll be covering topics like how (and why) to pray, acts of service, learning healthy communication, facing social pressure, showing respect, knowing your identity, having self esteem, and learning to be yourself and love yourself as God loves you. We’ll discuss and teach about honesty & forgiveness, understanding & sharing one’s faith, as well as virtues like patience, contentment, generosity, and integrity. Our goal is for these youth to know how their Christian faith can be applied and understood in their daily life. Over the course of the next few years, in conjunction with the topics like the ones listed above, we’ll also cover core concepts regarding the Christian faith.
