City View church is headed for The War Room! -
The latest film from the directors of the critically acclaimed Christian-themed films Fireproof and Courageous is called The War Room (watch trailer ). It’s been described as “the power that prayer can have on marriages, parenting, careers, friendships, and every other area of our lives.” We are reserving a theater at AMC Mission Valley to give you the opportunity to invite a friend to see the film as our guest. Here’s how it works: It’s basically “buy one, get one.” (The church is paying for the additional ticket, though, so we are requesting that you provide the name of each guest so we are assured seats are filled.) The showing will be at 5 pm on Saturday, August 29, at the Mission Valley AMC.
Impact Night honors CVC volunteers -
Impact Night is a night of inspiration, appreciation, and celebration for all of our City View volunteers.

If you serve at City View in a task of any size, you are invited! The event is Wednesday, September 2, at 6:30 pm in the Fellowship Center. Dessert and refreshments will be served. Childcare provided up to grade 5. RSVP is required: Cathy Console-Clark, firstname.lastname@example.org / 858.560.1870, or register online here.
Is there a small group in you? -
In any church, small groups are an indispensable tool for providing an environment for spiritual growth, care, community and meaningful ministry. Have you ever thought, “there ought to be a group for ...”? Maybe an activity group? A ministry team? A group for couples or singles who like to get together? An open neighborhood Bible study? A support group? If you’d like to see a new group at City View but just don’t know where to begin, it only takes a few simple tools. Contact our Adult Ministries pastor, Ed Chapman, at the church office or email him at email@example.com to get started.
