As this year draws to a close, we hope that you will join us for times of worship, fellowship, service, and celebration.

Armloads of Love. For many years, the congregation has been blessed to share food items with families in our neighborhood on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. It is a very meaningful and tangible way that our members can be a blessing to others as they have been blessed throughout their life.

Women’s Christmas Cookie Exchange. All CVCC women are invited to a Christmas Cookie Exchange at the home of Melissa Foster on Saturday, December 2, from 2 until 4pm. Please bring the following items for this exchange:

  • an appetizer to share
  • 6 dozen cookies
  • a container to take home cookies from the exchange

Advent Bible Classes. Each Sunday at 9am, Bible classes are available for all ages. During Advent, the adults will meet in one combined class and will explore a series called “Your Kingdom Come.”

Jesus’ Birthday Party. We are super excited to announce that our advent event this year is a birthday party for Jesus on Sunday, December 3 from 4-6pm. We’ll have lots of fun stations, pizza dinner, and a sweet treat. We’re asking that each family bring a gift for a child in the age range of infant through age 21 to be donated to Raising Hope. The gifts will be placed in Raising Hope’s toy shop where older siblings who live at Raising Hope can go to pick a gift for their younger sibling. Please do not wrap the gift. (If you want to place it in a gift bag because it’s a birthday party, that would be fine.) Raising Hope has suggested a price range of $20-25 for each gift.

RSVP to so we can have an accurate count for food. We can’t wait to see you at Jesus’ birthday party! 

Youth Group Christmas Party. On Saturday, December 9, the youth group is invited to the Daringers’ home for a youth group Christmas party. The party will be from 5-8pm and will include a catered dinner, games, prizes, and festive fun! We will also be collecting toys to donate to Raising Hope.


Carols and Candlelight. On Sunday, December 10, beginning at 6pm, you are invited to our annual Carols and Candlelight Service. This special service will feature the singing of favorite holiday carols, the lighting of candles, the reading of the birth narratives of Christ, and the renewing experience of the wonder of Christ’s radiant coming. We will enjoy cookies and fellowship following the service. Be sure to invite friends and loved ones to this favorite holiday tradition as we enjoy the season of Advent together.

Extravagodyssey. On Friday, December 15, Extravagodyssey is an extraordinary lock-in hosted by the Conejo Valley youth group. Come and enjoy an all-nighter filled with friends from other churches, worship, a devotional, games, prizes, and an epic scavenger hunt! The fun begins at 7pm Friday, December 15 and lasts until 7am, Saturday, December 16. Cost is $20 per person.

All-Church Christmas Party. The congregation is invited to a very special Conejo holiday gathering on Friday, December 17, beginning at 5pm at the home of Rick and Paula Marrs. Make plans now to come share in a delightful evening filled with warm holiday fellowship, Christmas carols, and tasty treats. Please bring substantial hors d’oeuvres or a favorite dessert to share.
