The Graduate group exists to minister to men and women in their post-college years as they follow God through their academic, vocational, and relational callings. We seek to develop a deeper love for Christ and a richer involvement in the life of the Church.


The Grad Student Life Group meets weekly on Thursdays at 7pm @CPC for fellowship and study. Studies will be designed to help grad students think biblically about key topics relevant to them. We want the group to engage heart and mind as we pray together, share our lives together, and help each other walk faithfully. Contact Craig for more information. COVID-19 Update - We're continuing to meet via Zoom, Meeting ID 650-823-415.

On Campus Mini-Groups 

In many areas of campus, like the med school, law school, divinity school, and graduate school, we will begin small groups with the intent of providing respite from the busy yet often lonely life of a grad student. Meeting during the day throughout the week, these will include Scripture reading and meditation, prayer, and fellowship. Contact Craig to get involved in one near you.

Vocational Seminars

Our church is blessed to have congregants in many fields that Graduates will enter, so these seminars will bring them together with students in that field. The goals include building multi-generational relationships, fostering a biblical worldview that is vocation-specific, and encouraging students on their journey. Stay tuned for dates and times throughout the year.
