Let the saints be joyful ingloryPs. 149:5

Worship at CVP is powerful.  Not that we have a full band or a worship team.  Not that we are electronically loud, but as a congregation we love to sing.  We lift our hearts and voices to God every week in worship of our God and King Jesus Christ.  The prayers are heartfelt, preaching is powerful and the sacrament of the Lord's Table is celebrated weekly.  The music remains a fresh combination between traditional church hymns from the Trinity Hymnal and favorite psalms and choruses. A piano accompanies our worship each Sunday. Additional instruments may be used on some songs to the degree that they help facilitate worship.  

Sermons are primarily exegetical, working through a book at a time of either the New or Old Testament.  Throughout the year, a few six to eight week breaks are taken to cover a topical series that is believed relevant to the church. Sermons are balanced between exposition, illustration, and application.
Expect children…a lot of children. On any given Sunday you will find between 200 and 300 people gathered for worship, spanning a wide spectrum of age and culture.  Although CVP would not be considered a “formal” church, most still put on their “Sunday Best” for worship. However, casual clothing is certainly accepted as well.

Each Sunday, following worship, we remain for fellowship and a pot-luck lunch. Please bring an entree as well as a substantial side dish, enough to feed two families so there is enough for everyone. On warm days we eat on the patio and during the rainy months we move chairs and eat in the sanctuary. If you forget to bring something, or if you are a visitor…Don’t worry! We want your fellowship, not your food!

We meet on the campus of the Central Valley Christian Academy at 2020 Academy Place in Ceres . There is a large parking lot in front of the school campus. Enter through the iron gate and follow the open doors back to the courtyard which leads to the auditorium where we meet for worship.
We gather as whole families, so you can prepare your children in advance to sit through the worship 
service at your side. The service typically lasts approximately 75 minutes.  Our weekly worship includes the following elements.

  • Call to Worship
  • Interactive readings from the Old and/or New Testament that reminds us of God’s standards and promises.
  • Corporate Confession of Sin
  • Hymns/Psalms/Choruses
  • Offering
  • Sermon
  • Lord’s Supper
  • Benediction

We meet most every Sunday at 10:00AM for worship at Central Valley Christian Academy (behind the Seventh Day Adventist Church).
