WHAT TO EXPECT
Students are invited every Wednesday night to enjoy dinner together, followed by biblical teaching that engages students right where they are, which will be followed by a breakout time in Connect Groups (C-Groups) for honest and practical discussion.
At CPC, our small groups are called Connect Groups. In CPC Youth we like to call them C-Groups for short. C-Groups are one way that we help a big church feel small. Students are able to connect deeper with a handful of other students of the same grade and gender. These groups are led by adult members of CPC who are trained to cultivate environments that are inclusive, where all types of students will be known and loved. Our goal is for our C-Groups to be marked by variety when it comes to schools, backgrounds, political beliefs, popularity, etc., and yet united under the gospel of Jesus Christ.
What We are Studying
The Gospel According to Jonah
Like Jonah, many of us are told to do things we don’t want to do. And, also like Jonah, sometimes we run from our problems instead of choosing obedience. While most of us have never been swallowed by a fish, we can still relate to Jonah’s dark night of the soul at the bottom of the ocean. But as we dig into this short, Old Testament book the story that emerges is about so much more than a fish. It’s about wrestling with justice and a loving God who offers grace to wicked sinners and self-righteous saints alike.
