Missionary Sunday – April 15th

Missionary Guest: Beth Grimm
Beth will be sharing with us at CVZ during both Worship services and Sunday School. Beth volunteers several weeks yearly at international missionary kids’ schools as an educational specialist for learning disabilities. Beth Grimm was in Guatemala this January, to do evaluations of MK-(Missionary kids) students with possible learning disabilities. In the Fall, she was in Papua New Guinea. Beth evaluates and then develops a teaching plan for the teachers and parents, and works with them so they understand how to implement the plan to aid the student in learning. This allows missionary families to remain on the field instead of having to return to the USA to make sure their child gets a decent education. Please join us for a luncheon with Beth in the social hall following the second Worship service around noon. 
The Luncheon will follow the 2nd Worship Service at noon.

National Day of Prayer

The theme for this year’s National Day of Prayer is Unity. In the spirit of unity, CVZ Church will hold a Community Prayer Circle on National Day of Prayer, May 3rd,  from 6:00pm to 6:30pm at Middle Paxton Elementary School. This event will be open to all in our community to come together ’round the flag pole or in the parking lot and pray for each other, our schools, our first responders and our country. CVZ is planning to join with other Dauphin churches and the Dauphin Middle Paxton Fire Co. (with a fire truck or two) to participate with us at this event. We will gather for a time of prayer led by pastors and leaders of our community and then open it up for others to pray as they feel led. Please join us for this National Day of Prayer event as we unite together as a community through prayer.

Summer Church Camp!

The camp schedules are now online at twinpines.org or camphebron.org for you to see and to decide which camp week or day camp your kids will attend this summer. Parents need to pay the $50.00 registration fee (paid directly to either Twin Pines in Stroudsburg or Camp Hebron in Halifax) to reserve your spot. There are many camp weeks and age groups to choose from. Once you have registered your children for Camp, a confirmation must be given to the office (Gail Grubb) in order for your child to receive funds from the CVZ Camp Fund to go towards the remaining balance due. The amount given to campers from the Camp Fund is determined by the Official Board with consideration given to the number of campers pre-registered, the cost of a week of regular base camp and then the funds available in the Camp Fund. Money from the Camp Fund will be distributed equally to each camper paid directly to the Camp. Parents will be responsible to pay any remaining balance due after payment from the Camp Fund (Please contact the office (Gail Grubb) by email: cvzoffice@cvzec.org or use the Secretary’s Church mailbox to give your camp confirmations or see Gail if you need more info. Camper confirmations due to the office by April 15.
