The remodeling of the church sanctuary finished! Out of reverence and in order to keep our newly remodeled sanctuary clean, beautiful, and inviting, we ask that all would please refrain from bringing food and drinks (except for bottled water) into the sanctuary. You are welcome to finish drinking a beverage and eating a snack in the CVC café area before the worship service begins. Coffee and snacks will again be served in the café after the service.

FROM THE CHURCH OFFICE
As a reminder, CVC has a mail sorter cabinet located in the coat room in the foyer. The church office uses this as a means to leave information as needed for CVC attenders to pick up from there. Individual mail bins are alphabetized and info is placed in the bin that corresponds to the first letter of the person’s last name. Feel free to use this form of communication if you need to leave info for the church office or for another person. (The mail bin for the church office is located on the bottom right of the cabinet.) Be sure to check your bin occasionally in case something has been left for you! Also, there is a lost and found basket in the foyer coat room. Please check here for any lost items. Questions? Please contact the church office.
The 2nd Sunday of each month has been designated as ‘Baptism Sunday.’ If you have questions or are considering taking this next important step in your faith, please call the church office to make an appointment to meet with Pastor David or indicate your interest to be baptized on a Welcome Card and place in the offering plate.
If you have been considering becoming a member of CrossView Church, please contact the church office for an application which explains the process for becoming a member or you may contact Pastor David or an Elder with any questions.
