The CV Green Team has been hard at work coming up with a slate of unbelievable programming for the summer months and beyond.  Check out all these awesome things that we want you to be a part of!

Green Team Hike, Sunday, June 11 – Join us on June 11 for a fabulous hike through Lebanon Hills Regional Park!  We’ll meet right after church, coordinate our strategy, and carpool all the way over to the mystical land of Eagan to hit the trails.  All abilities are welcome, but please be sure to wear appropriate footwear, and bring your water receptacle and a sense of adventure!

Save the Boundary Waters, Wednesday, July 12 – We are incredibly excited to host the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters at CV for what is going to be an unreal presentation on Minnesota’s own Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness!   Chris Donato from Save the Boundary Waters will be on hand to screen a short film about two adventurers who spent a year living in the BWCAW, and will then drop some knowledge on us about why it is critical to preserve this splendid part of God’s creation for future generations.  Who knows, perhaps this will inspire you to get up to the BWCAW in the near future!  More fantastic details to come, but save the date for the evening of July 12!

CV Camping Trip, August 18-20 – You read that correct – we’re hard at work finding a Minnesota state park for the freshest Lutheran camping trip this side of 40 days spent in the wilderness, no locust eating required (but you can if you want).  Come with your tents, your RV’s, your camping gear you haven’t pulled out in 30 years, we’ve got your back and are ready to have a great time.  Stay tuned for the extremely rad particulars!

Flat Jesus

Hello CV family. Lots of people are asking for more flat Jesus. You can print and color your Jesus-on-the-go using the following link. The pastors will also be sending out discussions on our weekly texts via facebook and e-blast to help families who want to worship-on-the-go with flat Jesus. Don’t forget to post pictures with #flatjesuscv so that we can see all of the cool places you and Jesus go this summer.

Sunday, February 26, 2017

The year will be the eleventh Annual Baskets of Love to celebrate our connections with our brothers and sisters in the Dominican Republic and Tanzania.  Both worship services will focus on Missions and at 9:45 am in the Fellowship Hall the silent auction will be held.  Proceeds from the silent auction will support the travelers of Christus Victor who will be traveling to Tanzania in the summer of 2019!

The generous members and ministry teams of Christus Victor are asked to fill a basket with special stuff for auction.  Please bring donated baskets to the church by Sunday, February 19.  EVERYONE is invited to come and bid on these wonderfully creative baskets on Sunday, February 26.

Thank you for your help!  If you have any questions, ask a member of the CV Missions Committee or contact KC Claussen Gubrud at 612-749-9195 or email
