ADVENT TREE, 2022
CVC has been greatly blessed throughout the years. As we prepare our hearts to celebrate the birth of our Savior, we’re so thankful to have the opportunity to give generously to others during this season through our 2022 Advent Tree. We have opportunities to give to some of our CVC Families and to various CVC Missions.
We are collecting gift cards for the children of CVC Families in need. These families have given us gift card ideas for each of their children. Gift card amounts should be $30. Giving to CVC families is only available in-person at our Broadview Heights Campus.
Here’s how it works!
1. Choose an ornament from the Advent Tree.
2. Fill out the green tag attached to the ornament.
3. Turn in the green tag to one of our Advent Tree helpers.
4. Buy the gift card.
5. Place the gift card in the brown envelope attached to the ornament.
6. Return it to CVC by Sunday, December 4. You can drop the envelope in any of our offering boxes or at our Info Desk.

Ghana-Pastoral Education Scholarships & Medical Clinic
CVC partners with the Ghana Baptist Convention in reaching the Nzema people in Africa. Part of our partnership is in establishing and growing healthy churches. All funds donated to Ghana Missions will be divided between Pastoral Education Scholarships and Medical Clinic expenses. Pastoral Education Scholarships will help to fund the $2,000 cost for a 4-year process for new pastors. Ghana Medical Clinic funds will be used to help families in need to offset medical expenses and to assist in funding costs incurred for the Clinic’s current expansion. For more information about our efforts in Ghana, view here: www.ghanahealthcenter.org/about_us.
Love & Hope-Tuition
Love and Hope is an orphanage in El Salvador that was started by Rachel Klubnik. CVC has been financially supporting this important work for close to 2 decades. Education is one of the most valuable assets we can give a child. At Love and Hope each young person is matched with an educational environment that fits their individual learning style and cultivates an atmosphere of success. Your donation goes towards tuition, school supplies, uniforms, and all the other expenses directly related to the Love and Hope kids’ education.
Love & Hope-Christmas Gifts
The Christmas gift you are providing is one that will literally last all year. Your donation goes towards the monthly outings that the kids take every month.
