CVBF's COVID-19 Response
Through the entirety of the Covid pandemic, CVBF has endeavored to make choices regarding the virus that enabled God's people to still worship and grow while prioritizing safety. We sought to honor and glorify God by respecting our governing authorities and follow health guidelines while servingour community through these unprecedented times. Below you will find a timeline detailing our response to the pandemic. At CVBF we desired to consider the needs and interests of others as Paul taught us in Philippians.
"Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others."
First Sunday Remote:
After the state mandated larger gatherings be suspended, CVBF opted to prerecord sermons and send them to members.

Masks at Church:
After a poll of church attendees we decided to no longer require masks during Sunday morning worship. This was in line with state mandates at the time.

First Sunday Back:
The state started allowing churches to meet again. CVBF chose to resume in person gatherings with changes to the order of service, masks, and enhanced cleaning policies.

CVBF changed its order of service initially by moving all singing after the sermon. In June, we reversed it back so that we now open and close our service with music.
