Growing together.

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

The CPC Youth and Family Ministries Team seeks to:
  • Provide places for youth and their families to explore their faith in a non-judgmental environment of loving support.
  • Develop ministry programs that are relational, formative, and consistent with reformed theology using creativity, openness, compassion and grace.  
  • Inspire honest and authentic conversations exploring faith and how we experience God.
  • Offer a strong foundation for continued spiritual development as our youth move into the world to share God’s love. 
  • Give opportunity for youth to be involved in the full mission of the church through participation in worship and outreach ministries. 
  • Provide an environment where our youth can form lasting relationships with adults outside their immediate family.

cpc youth groups

Youth Fellowship programs include three groups for young people in grades 3-12. Youth groups generally meet on Sunday evenings from September through May, beginning with a meal and followed by a program connected to the areas of Fellowship, Service, Exploration, and Worship. 

Our youth program is coordinated by our Youth PLUS Coordinator, Reverend Alan Bancroft, and the Youth and Family Ministries team. Volunteer adult advisors lead and support each group.

Meals are provided by parents and other church members. You can sign up to help out here.
*While the current Covid-19 precautions are in place, meals are not being served at youth group meetings.*
