Rooted Retreat

Rooted is our pastor/student apologetics retreat that began in 2012.  Pastor Wyman leads us through different aspects of apologetics as he gives us tools to defend our faith.  This is a weekend our students look forward to each year.  Location changes from year to year, but you can count on bon fires, great food, and great worship.

Student Missions

Over the past several years, CSM has taken mission trips to Seattle, Long Island, Texas, and Honduras.  This summer there is an intergenerational mission trip scheduled for Honduras June 6-13.  It will be opened to high school students and adults from across the church.  We also have afternoon or one-day projects throughout the year.


MidWeek Student Worship

Elevate happens every Wednesday night from 6:00 pm – 7:10 pm for 7th- 12th Grade!

7th – 8th Grade meets in the Fellowship Hall at 6:00 pm.

9th – 12th Grade meets in the Underground at 6:00 pm.

Our midweek gathering consists of the teaching of God’s Word, worship, fellowship, and small group discipleship.

Elevate MidWeek Series

We want students to hear God’s word through biblical teaching, understand how to apply it through intentional conversations, practice living it out through discipleship and missions, so that they would graduate from our student ministry owning their faith with the confidence of Christ.

Current Series – “ANTHEM” – Four week series discussing worship.
