2020 Virtual Advent Tree

We’re being a bit more cautious this year due to COVID-19, but we still want to bless people in Northeast Ohio and around the world through our Advent Tree!  Here is how you can get involved this year.

CVC Missions

We’re collecting monetary donations for our global, regional, and local ministry partners.  You can donate online using a credit card, write a check, or give cash.  Any amount will be greatly appreciated!

If you write a check, please make it payable to CVC and put the ministry name (Ex. Love & Hope Tuition) in the Memo line.  If you’re giving cash, please put it in an envelope and write the name of the ministry on the envelope.

For more information about the various Missions you can support through this year’s Advent Tree, see below!

CVC MISSIONS

GLOBAL MISSIONS
Ghana Medical Clinic
Money donated towards the Ghana medical clinic will be used help families in need off set medical expenses, obtain medical insurance ($30 for a year), or towards Stage 3 of the hospital build (3 surgical suite & 2 patient rooms).

Love & Hope—Tuition
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 presents
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. In 2021 we have lots of fun adventures planned (pandemic permitting) including trips to the beach, the Coatepeque Lake, up the Santa Ana volcano and more! We will “reveal” the 2021 Outing destinations to the kids on Christmas morning as a special gift from the CVC family.

REGIONAL MISSIONS
Brian’s Safe House and Sparrow’s Nest
Brian’s Safe House and Sparrow’s Nest are places where men and women battling addiction can encounter the life restoring powers of God in a safe environment in Beckley, WV. All funds collected will be used to buy Christmas gifts for the men and women of these homes.

Appalachia Church Plant
CVC is helping plant a church in Beckley, WV to reach the people of Appalachia. Any funds donated during Advent season would go directly towards the overall operating budgets to help this church get off the ground and become a viable gospel presence in the community that we serve.
