From Pastor Steve’s Study


Nothing is more important to me as your pastor than to know that you are being nourished in God’s Word.  That has certainly taken place these past two weeks in my absence.  I have listened to both messages and I have been encouraged.  Last week Harold Thomas challenged us in serving with the right heart.  Yesterday, Pastor Lee Fox exhorted us to run with patience the race that is set before us.  I trust these are still making an impact in your life because the Word of God never returns to Him void.

Thank you for all of your cards, texts, calls and words of encouragement.  The plan is for me to be back with you next Sunday.  My process of recovery has been significant on many levels.  As usual, it has been most important in God revealing new inspiration in His Word and deeper levels of His grace.  I long to be back in the saddle to share more of God’s love and goodness with you.  You are beloved in His sight and in mine.

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.

Missons & Ministry Update: Dads For A Day

CCV is an affiliate organization with a local faith-based organization called “Dads For A Day”. Founded by Curtis Ostrander, a former career law enforcement officer, DFAD matches boys from local communities with Christian men for mentoring. The boys do not have a father or other male role model in the home and are ages 9 – 15, Mentors spend a few hours a week with their boy.

Mike Barber became a mentor with the first group of men in 2018 with DFAD. Paired up with Donavin, a 12 year old boy from Leesburg, they usually spend Saturday afternoons together. Mike and Donavin explore mutual interests like movies, fishing, and landscaping. Recently, they discovered a common interest in cooking.


Training will begin in June for other CCV men who would like to be matched up with a boy. An interest sheet will be at the Info Desk this Sunday.

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

  • AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. 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.
  • 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.
  • Visit the new and updated CCV Website: www.ccvillages.org
