We are thankful to be present with one another and in community again. We invite all to join this church family for Bible classes and worship on a weekly basis in 2023. Your presence, thoughts, journey of faith, and encouragement matter to this body of believers! Masks are welcome but not required. We look forward to worshiping, learning, serving, and growing as a part of Christ’s family in the Conejo Valley this year.

HS Winter Retreat. Due to extreme weather conditions, the HS Winter Retreat had to be rescheduled to April 14-16. All High School students as well as our current 8th graders are invited and encouraged to attend this retreat in Big Bear. This year’s theme is “Higher Love.” Talk to our teens, Travis, or Rodney about their great retreat!

Family and Friends Outreach Events. As we return to community post-pandemic, we want to be intentional about inviting others to come, get to know, and become part of the community that meets at CVCC. Details vary monthly but are always spelled out in the weekly Family News bulletin. The Family and Friends Event for April is Dinner and a Movie at the CVCC building! Invite friends and enjoy sharing the movie “Risen” with family and friends.

CVCC 50th Anniversary. On Sunday on May 7, we will celebrate our congregation’s 50th year of ministry in the Conejo Valley! This is a wonderful opportunity for us to give praise for God’s care, provision, and blessing of this congregation through the years. Rick and Paula Marrs will be sharing memories of our congregational story while also reflecting on its significance going forward. After the worship service, we’ll share in a luncheon together–dust off those beloved recipes of yesteryear and let’s have an old-fashioned potluck, complete with such timeless classics as crushed potato chip chicken and rice casserole, green bean dish with crispy onions, and banana pudding with Nilla Wafers.

Moms Better Together. The third Friday of each month, moms of all ages and life stages are invited to gather at the church building from 5:45 to 7:45pm to share a meal and have time to encourage one another. Because a meal is provided, it is important that those who want to participate RSVP.
