Good Friday Service

We would love for you to join us by way of Live Stream for our Good Friday Service on April 10th at 6pm. To join click on the Media tab on our website, www.communityvineyard.org. Live stream will be one of the options. We will be taking communion "together" so be sure to have juice and bread ready. No juice or bread in the house? Water and a cracker will be just fine. The attitude of your heart and your understanding of the reason behind the act of communion are the important things.

Emergency Prayer Requests

The best way to contact our Prayer Chain Coordinator, Celeste Lazar, is her through her prayer email address: momceleste@earthlink.net. Please understand she may need to limit the number of words used and, therefore, may need to edit your request.  To ensure the prayer requests are passed along accurately, Celeste prefers that regular email prayer chain requests be sent to her prayer email address. They may, however, be given to her in person also.
