We Stand for Good

Our 2019–2020 school year theme is, "We Stand for Good" and the theme verse Galatians 6:9, which says, "So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up." Over the past month, we have begun a journey to explore what it means to "Stand for Good" and live in a manner that allows us to be a beautiful light for Christ in the world. 

STEM Advancement at CVCS

Doubt: A Faith Catastrophe or Catalyst?

It was the greatest physical healing my kids had prayed for and then celebrated. God worked through a series of experimental chemotherapy treatments to heal one of my closest friends, Chrissy, from terminal cancer. Our family, and all who were close to Chrissy, rejoiced and hugged our walking and talking miracle.
