Resurrection Stories: A New Bible Study re-starts May 25th

Each Gospel shares a different story of the Resurrection.  Though it's always women, there are different witnesses in each Gospel.  The angels are different.  Details about the stone being rolled away are different.  Was Jesus raised before the stone was rolled away or after?  And - do any of these differences make a difference in whether anyone believes or not?


Bible Study meets on Wednesdays at 7:15 PM on Zoom.  Click here to join.

Music Camp

Volunteers: fill out this form.

Date: TBD.


Recordings of Worship Services and Other Events

The videos are posted on the

CVLC Vimeo page.

Together Campaign

$600,000

Money committed to the Building Renovation.

Donate online now!


On May 31st, 2021, a resounding 76% of the voting members voted in favor of taking out a loan so that we can build the first two phases of the renovation at the same time.  We are now working with the architect to make these goals a reality:

  • the building will better reflect God's mission
  • people of all abilities will be together in the building, this includes an elevator and new accessible bathrooms
  • the band led worship service and choir led worship will be together in a more flexible Sanctuary
  • more space for comfort-giving ministries
