We are excited to be making plans for the 99th year of CPYC June 26-July 1, 2022 at Bethel University. Keep checking this page for more details. Here are a few updates as we get ready for CPYC 2022.
CPYC Staff Invites
Every year CPYC invites adults to join alongside the YMPC to help staff CPYC. The process begins in the Fall of previous CPYC year and ends with finalizing staff in the spring of the year of the upcoming CPYC. This schedule looks like:
November & December
Compile names from DMT Staff, YMPC, and past volunteers for CPYC staff
Every year we try to invite not only people who have served in the past but also leave room for new staff members to join us. With that means there are times that long time CPYC staff or newer staff may not be invited to be staff that year. We hope that adults who want to join but aren’t invited as staff that summer will consider helping their local church by being a chaperone/volunteer or be an adult participant for that summer. If you have any questions about this process or would like to be considered to be staff for CPYC contact Nathan Wheeler firstname.lastname@example.org
CPYC One Day Events
CPYC One Day Events are one day youth events held in local churches and presbyteries every spring to help students learn more about CPYC and to have a day full of fun, food, and fellowship. The next CPYC One Day Event is scheduled for March 5, 2022 in Ada, Oklahoma at Covenant CPC. If you would like more info about one day event in Ada, OK or to host your own contact Nathan Wheeler at email@example.com
June 26-July 1
Welcome all CPYC Alumni!!!
For almost 100 years CPYC (formally YPGA/NACPYF) has gathered young people in the CPC & CPCA to deepen their faith in Jesus Christ, love for the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and create a space for Faith, Fun, and Fellowship.
We are excited to formally begin our CPYC Alumni Association that we hope will continue deepening the roots that were established by our connections and love of CPYC and for the sustainability of CPYC long into the future.
The membership into the Alumni Association will not only provide funding that will go towards the future of CPYC but also towards building our CPYC Alumni. We hope that in future years we will be able to host CPYC Alumni events including a 100 year celebration in 2023, a table top book on the history of CPYC, creating a CPYC Alumni mentoring program and more. We will also be creating exclusive CPYC Alumni merchandise including a free gift for your membership into the CPYC Alumni Association.
