You are invited to create your own worship space and to join in the ritual movements of the service:

  • Have food and drink for communion. This may be anything you have available. Whatever it is, it is holy.

Join us in our new worship space every Sunday at 10:30 am.

If you plan to join us:

  • Masks are optional for those attending worship or engaging in any other ministry work associated with CCVP

We welcome everyone as a child of God. We seek to create worship services that renew and transform our hearts and minds to God's work. The Communion Table is central to our worship. Every worship service includes communion. At the Table we remember and celebrate God’s love and grace made manifest in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Our services include a mix of traditional and contemporary worship styles and include music, praise, prayer, and a weekly message from our pastor. Our music draws from a variety of styles from traditional hymns and contemporary praise songs to classical and jazz performance pieces. 

We hope you will join us as we build community through worshiping our God.

Upcoming Worship Series

God's Justice Sept 20 - Oct 4

September 19, 2020

“Israel, are my ways unfair? Is it not your ways that are unfair?” – Ezekiel 18:29

 

We talk a lot about justice. People protest in the streets and online in the name of justice. As children, we demand fairness from peers, parents, and teachers. As adults, we demand justice from our government, from the courts, from one another. But, too often, what we really mean by fair or just is that we get our own way. We pay little attention to whether everyone else is getting what they need too. God’s justice, however, sets our own demands aside and calls us to look at the world in a different way. To find true justice where all experience the dignity accorded to God’s children. To find true fairness where everyone has what they need, no more and no less.

Expansive Love Aug 23 - Sept 13

August 07, 2020

“Owe no one anything, except to love one another… Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.” – Romans 13:8, 10

 

We are the church. We are called by God to be followers of Jesus. But what are we called to do? How are we to live out our faith? These last months have reminded us how deeply we are impacted by the lives of those around us and how we impact them. It has shown us that the discrete circles we’ve created or independent lives we’ve tried to lead are illusory. We are connected and God wants us to be connected. As the church, we are called to participate in God’s ever expansive love, to create and nurture connections in new ways.

Stories that Form Us July 19 - August 9

July 17, 2020

“Jesus told the crowds all these things in parables; without a parable he told them nothing. This was to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet:

‘I will open my mouth to speak in parables;

I will proclaim what has been hidden from the foundation of the world.’”

 – Matthew 13:34-35

The stories we tell about ourselves and our communities shape us; they let us know who we are and how we should live. They tell us truths about the world. In every story we hear deep truths that speak across ages. Yet, sometimes we need to hear these truths in new ways. We need to retell our stories so that we can see their heart again.

What to Expect
When You’re Not Expecting
November 27 - December 24, 2022

“But about that day and hour no one knows” – Matthew 24:36

 

During Advent we await the coming of new life. But how do we prepare for this new, unexpected change in our lives? We nurture ourselves and our relationships. We ask questions, open to whatever answers come. We examine who we and the world around us are and what needs to change for life to flourish. We try to be ready for the surprises to come.

Locating Grace
October 9 – November 20, 2022

“Yet you, O Lord, are in the midst of us, and we are called by your name” – Jeremiah 14:9

 

Where do we look for and notice God’s grace? We say God is always with us and is present in all things, but we don’t always seem to believe it. We locate grace in particular places and specific people. We hold some as godlier examples than others. Are we noticing God’s presence in every place and person or are we omitting important moments and inconvenient witnesses? Can we truly see God’s grace wherever we are?

A New Way.png
A New Way
September 4 – October 2, 2022

“I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you” – 2 Timothy 1:6

 

The world is changing. We are changing. We have a new path to forge. What direction will we choose? It may sometimes seem that we are alone, with impossible choices before us. But God is always with us. We choose to follow or not. Even not making a choice is a choice of sorts. Change is coming. What path will we take?

Imagine a world.png
Imagine a World with More
July 24 – August 28, 2022

“The heavens are telling the glory of God” – Psalm 19:1

 

As a church, we are in a season of reimagination and renewal. What has been is no longer and what will be remains unknown. Instead of worrying about what’s next or getting caught up in fear of what we don’t have, let us imagine more. In her 2022 State of the Church address Rev. Teresa “Terri” Hord Owens shared, “God's imagination is so limitless that we are called to continually move the stake. We can't think of anything beyond what God can accomplish. We are invited to see God’s love as the limitless and abundant force in our world, or the world we want to create.” Let us dream together.

Unbelief image.png
Help My Unbelief
June 12 - July 17, 2022

“I believe; help my unbelief!” – Mark 9:24

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.” – John 1:5

 

As much as we try to live out the full love of God in the world, there are always places we struggle. Places where it hurts to look too deeply; places so different from what we’ve always known that we struggle to comprehend. But God’s love is never ending, spreading into every crack and bringing light to all darkness.

Embodied Word.png
Embodied Word
May 15 - June 5, 2022

“I give you a new commandment, that you love one another” – John 13:34

 

As witnesses to the resurrection, our lives are changed. We are no longer who we were as we embody the Word of God in the world.
