We know starting a new school year is full of details. Here's everything you'll need to know for our Fall 2019 Kickoff!

All church events

Ministry Fair: August 25 @ 10am, Worship Center Lobby

  • Connect and serve with Clemson Pres! Before and after the worship service, ministries from the church will be stationed in the lobby for you to stop by, meet the leadership, find out how to be involved, and learn about service opportunities.

Welcome Back Picnic: August 25 @ 5:45pm, Fellowship Hall & Courtyard

  • Each year we gather together for a fun evening to welcome back our college student friends and kick off a new year. We’re having Bucky's BBQ, baked beans, coleslaw, chips, and ice cream bars. Cost is $3/person, $15/family. Students are our guests and eat for free.

Volunteer Training: August 26th @ 6pm

  • If you're a small group leader, children's ministry volunteer, or youth ministry volunteer meet in the Fellowship Hall for dinner followed by a short time of training for the upcoming year of ministry.

Newcomers’ Class begins September 8th at 9am in 2E6. It’s a great way to learn about Clemson Pres and let us get to know you. Learn more or let us know you’re coming, go to clemsonpres.org/newcomers.


There are many ways to serve in the church or in the community. From cleaning toys in the nursery to being a financial mentor to spending time with families staying with us for a week, your gifts are needed. We would love to have you serve with us. Learn more at the link below.

Sunday Night Kickoff: September 8th @ 5:30pm, Fellowship Hall/Nursery

  • Kids nursery through 5th grade are invited to learn about Scripture through games, songs, and teaching. Be sure to stop at the check in desk on the Nursery Hall or Fellowship Hall each week to let us know you're here.

D-Groups Begin / Parent Meeting : August 28 @ 6:30, fellowship hall

  • All students and parents are invited to join us for our meal ($3 per person) and the beginning of our small group time (6:30-8:30pm in the fellowship hall). The parent meeting will begin at 7:30pm. 

Middle School Youth Group: September 1 @ 5:30, Worship Center

High School Youth Group: September 1 @ 7pm, Worship Center

Parenting Conference: February 1, 2020, 9am-3pm, registration is open

  • We all want to be seen and heard. Our technology saturated culture aids parents and children alike in connecting and sharing with each other, friends, and family. But with all the good technology brings, there are also risks and pitfalls. Join us February 1, 2020 for an energizing day with Walt Mueller of the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding (CPYU). Walt is exceptional at meeting parents in their journey of raising adolescents. In the morning he will walk us through the natural development processes of adolescents, noting our culture’s intentional marketing techniques to capture the desires of our children. After a catered lunch, Walt will uncover some of the hidden ways technology affects us and our children, while also showing us ways to be faithful followers ofChrist in a digital community.
