9th Graders

Wednesdays  •  6:15-7:30PM  •  CPC

Commitment Class (CC) is the unique starting point for 9th graders to begin grounding their lives as followers of Jesus. Through times of teaching, community-building, and mentorship, students gain the knowledge to embrace their faith as their own. In addition to our weekly gatherings, students also take part in two retreats and a worship experience outside of CPC, as well as summer camps and mission opportunities.

(plus one large-group meeting at CPC each month)

HSM is our ministry for 10th-12th grade students from all around the southwestern suburbs. Students are placed in different house groups that meet most Wednesday nights during the school year, enabling students to engage in community time and small-group Bible study. All of the houses gather together once a month for large-group worship and fun at CPC. We also have service projects, mission trips, and summer camps designed to help students build their faith and relationship with Jesus and connect with other high school students.

IMPACT STUDENT LEADERSHIP

IMPACT is a way for 9th-12th graders in HSM to serve others through their gifts and passions. There are two areas of focus: Community Service Teams (reach outward to community and church) and Student Service Teams (reach back to younger students and kids). Student Service Teams are now closed.

Before beginning the application process, please take a moment to read Carrie Gleeson's letter about shifting Commitment Class under the umbrella of HSM and how that affects next year's seniors in IMPACT. 

To apply, fill out the application below, then read and agree to the Lifestyle Commitment.
