Looking Forward at CVLC


Snack Packs:  We need to build up our snack pack fund.  At the end of the 2021 school year, snack packs cost $4.57/bag and at the end of 2022 each bag cost $6.23/bag.  With the rising costs, the snack pack fund did not cover all of the expenses at the end of the last school year.  Please consider donating to the snack pack fund.


FAITH & BLUE CHILI COOK-OFF AND CAR SHOW: Christus Victor, in partnership with St. Paul AME and Grace United Methodist, is hosting a “Faith & Blue” chili cook-off and car show event. This brings law enforcement officers and our surrounding community together in fellowship and fun. Want to enter a crock pot of chili into a people’s choice cook-off contest? Or do you or someone you know have a fancy or old-time car to show off? Email Pastor Michael with your name and type of chili or car, and be here Saturday, October 8 at 10am (the event finishes at 2pm). We’re also looking for just having extra hands as needed during the event as well. Be sure to drop by during the event and have a good time! In recognition of October as Mental Health Awareness month, all donations and proceeds of the event go to the National Alliance on Mental Illness ( Come be a part of this community-building event!


PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY:   Emily  House and Doni Schroeder are starting a Prayer Shawl Ministry here at Christus Victor. Prayer Shawls are truly amazing, both to receive and to make. You can knit or crochet, any pattern works. There are multiple prayer shawl patterns on line. Emily is willing to teach anyone interested how to crochet on 3 different days at the church: Wednesday, October 5th from 10am to 2pm; Saturday, October 15th from 9am to 12 noon; and Sunday, October 16th in between church services. If you are interested, please let Emily know which time works best for you. Thank You, Emily and Doni


BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS,  Wednesday, October 5 at 6:30pm: The day after we commemorate St. Francis of Assisi (observed October 4), Pastor Michael will have a Blessing of the Animals for all our animal companions. We will hold a brief service of prayer, song, and blessing at the prayer labyrinth. Bring your special animal with you, and we'll see you there. 


CONNECTED IN CHRIST ADULT FELLOWSHIP: On Saturday, October 15, at 6:00pm, we will gather together at San Jose Restaurant, 10618 Broad River Road, Irmo. If you would like to attend, please contact Johnna so we can make a reservation. We hope you will plan to join us.


TRUNK-OR-TREAT:  Trunk-or-Treat is coming Saturday, October 29 from 6:00-8:00pm and we need you to help make this a successful and fun event. We need cars decorated, candy donations, cooks and servers (corn dogs, chips and water) and smiling faces to greet visitors. There will be a  sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the Narthex next Sunday. We hope to have great support from our members.


LOW COUNTRY BOIL: On Saturday, November 12 we will have a low country boil at the home of Lane and Tony Kochert at 6:00pm. We will have shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes (all cooked separately).
