Student Ministry

COVID-19 UPDATE: Student Ministry City Groups are back in person! Our Middle School City Group will meet from 5:30-6:45pm, and High School will meet from 7-8:30pm. For students who aren’t able to meet in-person yet, we will host a Zoom call during the lesson times for each group. More information about those Zoom calls and COVID precautions will be emailed to parents.

Beginning March 7, 2021, Sunday School will resume as well! We ask all students who are able to wear a mask. Temperatures will be taken at the entrance to the Barn, COVID screening questions will be asked, and social distancing will be practiced.

Get Involved in Student Ministries!

There’s always a lot going on in Student Ministries! There’s lots of information listed below, but please don’t hesitate to contact Patrick Fischl (Director of Student Ministries) or Morgan Siuda (Associate Director) if you have any questions. He’d be glad to help you and your family get connected at CEPC!

Sunday Worship

We place a high value on students at CEPC being a part of the larger church. For that reason, students are encouraged to attend either of our Sunday morning worship services, either at 8:30 am or 11:00 am in the Sanctuary. 

Sunday School

Sunday School resumes March 7, 2021! When we launch back up, Youth Sunday School happens from 10-10:50am on Sundays in the Barn! This time especially designed to help middle and high school students grow in their love of Christ, his Word, and his Church. We have an all-you-can-“eat” buffet of cereal, fellowship, teaching, and the Word. Youth Sunday School meets at the same time as our other adult Sunday School classes, so we encourage parents to attend one of those classes while their students are in the Barn!

Middle School & High School City Groups

One of the best ways to get plugged in at CEPC is by joining a City Group. For middle and high school students, these City Groups meet on Sunday nights!

Middle School City Group: Sundays from 5:30-6:45 pm in the Barn. Our Middle School City Group is a BLAST! We start each night with an incredibly fun game, then hear a talk from Patrick or one of our volunteers, then we meet in smaller groups to get to know each other better and encourage each other in our faith. Come hang out!

High School City Group: Our High School City Group meets from 7-8:30 pm in the Barn. We’ll have some healthy competition (like a game of Gaga Ball or Ultimate Frisbee), then a short devotional and time in small groups. This is an awesome time to get to know other high schoolers following Jesus, and to grow in our love of Christ, his Word, and his Church.
