Weekly News from CVLC

Midweek Advent Holden Evening Prayer  - The season of Advent is upon us! It’s exciting, but also very hectic and busy. One great way to focus, slow down and take time to reflect on the meaning of the Advent season is to join us on Wednesday nights for the Holden Evening Prayer. Come for dinner at 6:00 PM, followed by the Holden Evening Prayer from 6:30-7:00 PM. It is truly a beautiful service and a very special part of the Advent season.


CHOIR CANTATA - This year, the Adult Choir will join with Westminster Presbyterian’s Adult Choir to present our Christmas cantata, Sing Joy to All the World, by Lloyd Larson. Please join us for breakfast at Christus Victor on December 17 and then the 10:30 AM service for our presentation of the cantata. We also invite you to hear it again at Westminster Presbyterian that evening at 5:00 PM, followed by supper at Westminster. The adult choirs at both churches have practiced many hours and are looking forward to singing together. We would like for this to be a community event and an opportunity to reach out to our neighbors. We encourage you to invite friends and family!


MESSY CHRISTMAS - Saturday, December 16, and Sunday, January 14, 5:00-6:30 pm. Join us for family style worship for all ages! Celebrate Advent, Christmas & Epiphany in a whole new way!
