CPC has a long history of providing fun and meaningful programming for ISU students. In fact, CPC was founded in 1911 with the primary purpose of ministering to local students. We encourage spiritual growth through uplifting worship, heart-felt conversations, informative Bible studies, pastoral care and refreshing retreats. We like to think that our congregation is open, loving and relevant and that you'll feel at home here.
Westgate Student Center which is located on the second floor of our church, has a large kitchen, a comfy lounge, study tables, and free wireless. It's a great place to study, grab a snack, take a nap, or just chat with friends. It is open Sunday - Thursday, 8am - 10pm and Friday, 8am - 5pm. Most of our activities take place here.
We offer several activities throughout the week during the fall and spring semesters. Sundays, following the worship service, we enjoy a free, home-cooked meal. There is a weekly Bible study. On Wednesday afternoons, from 4 pm - 6 pm, students can volunteer with children at our church's after school program - "Club CPC." In addition, we offer a overnight retreat each semester, a spring break mission trip, movies, etc. The best way to stay informed about what is happening with our university ministry group is to join our Facebook group ("The Vine at Collegiate Presbyterian Church") and check out our calendar below.
