To the Parents

Parents, we want to hear from you regarding your son or daughter. Any information or insight into the lives of your child will only help with what we do here on a weekly basis. We want you to know that we are not here to parent your child but to reinforce and strengthen what you do at home. In the event you need feedback from us on what we observe here in Student Ministries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Below are some frequently asked questions that may give you the information you need -- if your question isn’t answered below-please don’t hesitate to contact us at 810-494-4032 or by email.

Student Ministries FAQs


1. How do I register my child for a trip, event or activity?
A. Stop at the Check-in table in each department and completely fill out a yellow payment envelope, place your check or cash into the envelope and drop the sealed envelope into the locked deposit box. Please make sure the envelopes are completely filled out, as most times we are registering for more then one activity or trip at the same time and incomplete envelopes cause confusion and as to which event or activity you are registering for.

2. What number do I call if I need to ask questions or talk to one of the Youth Directors?
A. 810-494-4032. This number is the main number for the Student Ministries Office.

4. Do you offer any assistance in payment if we can’t afford to send our child on a trip or activity?
A. We do have a scholarship program to help defer costs. A form is available in the Student Ministries Office and on the Students webpage which must be completed to apply for assistance. Once the form is received, it will be reviewed and you will be notified as to the amount that we will be able to offer.

5. Can I get a refund if my child cannot participate on a trip or activity?
A. The refund policy of CSM states that “all deposits are non-refundable, unless your child’s spot on a trip or activity can be filled with another paying student. If we are able to fill the spot, a refund check will be mailed to you. The refund process takes approximately 2 weeks. No refunds after 3 weeks out.
