Weekly News from CVLC

Congratulations to THOSE BEING CONFIRMED ON SUNDAY - The congregation is invited to a reception in their honor in the fellowship hall immediately after the 10:30 am service.


CVLC KITCHEN CLOSED - Due to pest control treatment and cleaning, our church kitchen has been closed. Because of this, no activities that use the kitchen are permitted at this time, although it is fine to use the fellowship hall. This means that our regularly scheduled first and third Sunday breakfasts will be cancelled until further notice. We will notify everyone when all is taken care of and the kitchen is open again.


CALLING ALL GRADUATES - If your child will be graduating from high school or college, please contact the church office and let us know where they are graduating from and what their future plans are so we can recognize them in the next newsletter. The deadline to submit this info is Sunday. Thanks!
