Christus Victor

Lutheran Church

First time here?  Welcome and God bless you!  On this website you will find links to join our online activities (we'll include in-person worship information too when we can safely meet in the building again).  You can also find recordings of past worship services and other information about CVLC.  If you are looking for something and can't find it, just email us at cvlc.durham@gmail.com

The Almighty Triune God has given us a mission, it is: Fearlessly trusting God, we accept all others, ourselves, and our calling to give comfort.  You are invited to join us in living out God's mission.

Together Campaign

Together, we are building out God's Mission.  We are praying that God will make a way for us to build Phase 1A and Phase 1B and the independent projects at the same time.  The Together Campaign will run from January 10th to February 28th.  A successful campaign makes it possible for:

  • people of all abilities to be together in the building
  • the band led worship service and choir led worship to be together in the Sanctuary
  • everyone to be more comfortable and space for comfort-giving ministries
  • the building to better reflect God's Mission

In the video section below, "Meet the folks at Christus Victor," you can hear what people are saying about the Together Campaign.  Together, we can do this!  Send in your intent cards to the church office by February 21st.

Phase 1A = renovated Sanctuary & new main entrance (with elevator shaft)

Phase 1B = larger addition with new bathrooms

The independent projects include an elevator, HVAC, installing exterior windows, a cross in the front yard, and a drainage pipe beneath the future kitchen.

More information in the members section.
