YOUTH MINISTRY
Pray for Me Campaign
Research has shown that 40-50% of students from good youth groups and families will drift from God and the church after high school. However, those who remain connected to the church and flourish in their faith have multiple adult believers who are intentionally investing in their lives.  The Pray for Me Campaign is a movement designed to naturally create multi-generational relationships through prayer. Students (7th-12th grade) are each paired with three Prayer Champions, one from each generation (20s-30s, 40s-50s, and 60s+) who commit to pray for them for an entire school year. Prayer Champions will be led through a prayer guide throughout the school year as they make this commitment. CPC’s own Pray For Me Campaign will have its launch event on Sunday, August 27. To become a Prayer Champion, email Greg.

CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES:
