  • Missions Trip Announced

From Pastor Steve’s Study:
When we are knocked out of commission and feel helpless, that is often when we feel most grateful and realize how blessed we really are. Such is the state I am in right now. God’s grace is always beyond measure. Thank you for your love and prayers during my recovery. Kudos to all you faithful servants for carrying the load. A special thanks to Harold for filling the pulpit.

My therapy is actually ahead of schedule, so I hope to be back in the saddle soon.  I look forward to getting back to our study in 1 Corinthians.  Our next chapter is 10 as we will consider, “whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”  [Verse 31]  I know that is your heart. Be blessed this week as you glorify Him.

Send your Pastor an email during his recovery:

Important Announcement from CCV Property Team

Gene Tonn, Glenn Berkhahn and Bill Salerno updated the congregation that there will not be an extension of our lease at the September 2020 expiration. Financially, we do not have the resources or time to acquire property and build our own facility at this time.

Please make this a matter of individual prayer. Keep your eyes and ears open for any facility that might be a good fit for our services. Let an elder or member of the property team know if you become aware of opportunities that should be checked out.

CARE Ministry:

As our church is experiencing growth, the physical needs within our body are the highest priority in serving one another in times of sickness, loss of loved ones, and practical needs. The following people have stepped forward and are serving over six areas as follows:
Bereavement / Don and Carol Mordas
Visitation / Jim & Karen Silva
Meals / Marjie Setser
Prayer / Paul and Karen Caucci
Helps / Johnny Cyr
Benevolence / Stan Grab

If you know of physical needs within the CCV body, let someone know:

Contact Pastor Steve, an Elder or Peter if you know of a need within our church.

People are needed who:

Let’s do this together!

A Bit More About CCV:

CCV Giving Is Facilitated In Two Ways:

A Calvary Chapel distinctive is that no offering plate is passed during service.
There is a Tithe and Offering box located at the back of the sanctuary

Giving online is convenient and can be set up at the CCV website

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.

Go to

Select “Calvary Chapel Villages” from the eligible organization list.

Facilities – We are currently leasing the community center where we worship on Sundays. There is an “Expansion Fund” for CCV folks to give toward a future permanent facility. You may give by identifying your donation for this purpose on the envelopes (Info Table) or online.
