Worshiping, praying, and studying God’s word;
Being together with other people; and
Acting in faith through words and deeds both inside and outside our church walls.

Play the Man, by Mark Batterson

Play the Man.png

Somewhere along the way, our culture lost its definition of manhood, leaving generations of men and men-to-be confused about their roles, responsibilities, relationships, and the reason God made them men.  It's in this "no-man's-land" that New York Times bestselling author Mark Batterson declares his mantra for manhood: play the man.

In this inspiring call to recover true manhood, he helps men understand what it means to be a man of God.  Mark shares inspiring stories of manhood with practical ideas of how to disciple the next generation of men who will settle for nothing less than fulfilling their highest calling to be the man and the father God has destined them to be.

Join CVLC's very own Men in Action as they challenge themselves in the 4-Session Series, Play the Man.  The series will run on Saturdays from 7am - 8:15am at CVLC on Sept 2, 9, 16, and 23.  We will close the series with a breakfast on Sept 30.

If you have any questions, please contact Don Schlenbecker.

On May 6, 2016 we hosted a special session entitled..

We had the pleasure of hosting Azher Javaid, Youth Program Director at the Orland Park Prayer Center, to discuss the foundation of Islam, comparisons of the Abrahamic faiths, and a no holds barred question and answer time.

The purpose of this session was to build a better understanding with our neighbors in faith.  We are all humans and children of God and should work towards living in harmony together.  It was an amazing event!
