Fusion is our Student Ministry program at CUMC. As a church we believe that the spiritual development of the upcoming generations is incredibly important. We place a lot of emphasize on making sure that our kids have a safe place to learn more about Jesus, starting with The Wave (birth-4th), Transit (5th - 6th) and Fusion (7th -12th).

All of our ministries echo our overall church goal and vision: Connect, Grow, Share. We might phrase it slightly different from ministry to ministry to better address the age groups that we are interacting with. In our Fusion ministry we do this through the simple words Found, Equipped, Sent.

As a ministry we want to make sure that all of our students develop a relationship with God, that they would be Found in the love of our Heavenly Father. Then we want to empower our students through teaching, serving opportunities and small groups to Equip them for the work of God and His kingdom. Lastly, we want our students to know that they have a valuable role to play in the narrative of God's story, and that they are being Sent out to share God's grace with others. 

At Fusion we have a very simple goal, "we want to simplify our approach to amplify Jesus." This just means that our focus is not necessarily to have the biggest, most cutting edge, crazy games and set up. We will have games and do cool events but all of that comes in second to creating an opportunity for our students to have a genuine encounter with God.

2018 Confirmation Classes

Confirmation is set up to help young students, 7th grade and up, learn the basic fundamental truths of our Christian faith. It's a 6 week class where students will be taught in a large group setting and then have time to discuss what they've learned in small break out groups.

We believe that CUMC is here to partner with parents in the spiritual maturity and development of their children. For that reason, we require that at least one parent/guardian to commit to be present with their child for the entirety of the confirmation classes.

Confirmation Classes will be held starting Sunday, September 9th. We will meet every Sunday following through October 14th. We will meet in Room 206 from 2:00 - 3:15 on Sunday afternoons.

Sign ups for confirmation for confirmation are now open. You can sign up by following this LINK. If you have any questions please contact Hugo at Hugo@chapinumc.com

When do we meet?

Our Student Ministry will be changing our meeting structure to better address the needs of our middle school and high school students. Right now we are working on finalizing these details for our students and parents. Please attend our Parent Meeting on August 26th to go over all this new information. Our Parent Meeting will be at 12:25 in the Fusion Center. This meeting will last approximately one hour with some time for Q&A at the end. If you have any immediate questions you can e-mail Hugo at hugo@chapinumc.com.

Upcoming Fusion Trips

Through out the year we try to take our students on a few different retreats to help refocus our attention on God and strengthen that relationship. These trips are a great opportunity for our students to create new friendships and grow closer to their leaders. 

We try hard to price these trips so that they are affordable to all. However, we understand that sometime these trips can be financially challenging. We never want money to be the reason a student is not able to participate or experience a connection with God. Thats why we offer partial and full scholarships for all of these events. Scholarships are distributed on an as needed bases and for large families with multiple kids who would want to attend the trips. Just fill out the Scholarship Form and have it turned in to Hugo. 

  • Fusion Summer Camp 2019

    Summer Camp is the best week of the year in our Fusion Calendar. There's no other time or event in which we see this level of fellowship or community among our students and our leaders. We also get to see students encounter God on a completely different level. We are very intentional about creating a space where students can be separated from their everyday distraction and can focus their attention on God.

    This week is made up of great times of worship, amazing talks about our faith, and SO MUCH FUN!!! Besides our structured competitions we also have access to a massive gym where students can play basketball, an 18 hole disc golf course, sand volleyball court, hang out space, pool, pond where they can canoe or paddle boat, walking trail and more. The opportunities for students to connect are endless.

    We will be attending camp at the Bonclarken Christian Conference Center in Flat Rock, NC. This is an amazing facility, with great food and amenities. All of our students will be staying in lodges that are located right next to each other.

    Our FSC19 dates are already locked in. We'll be going June 29 - July 3, 2019. Make sure to mark your calendars.
