What To Expect
We invite you to join us on Sunday for our weekly gathering!
Sunday's at 10:00am we gather at Cumberland United Church (2688 Penrith Ave in Cumberland) for a time of worship and teaching. These gatherings are a great opportunity to connect with our people, and to get a sense for who we are and what we're passionate about as a church.
Not sure what to expect...
Our service usually runs about 90 minutes in length, and is open to anyone who would like to join us. We start with an opportunity to connect and hang out together, and then move into a time of music together. This is typically followed up by a biblical teaching and participation in the Lord's Table (see below).
During our teaching time we have a children's program available to those from 2-6 years old, where they receive teaching designed specifically to engage them. Click here for more info on Via Kids.
The Lord's Table
We celebrate the Lord's Table (Eucharist) each Sunday. This celebration of who Jesus is and what He's done for us has been the high point of Christian worship since Jesus instituted it prior to His death. We celebrate the Lord's Table using a traditional liturgy, and welcome all baptized followers of Jesus to share together the bread and wine that speak to us of Christ's passion and sacrifice for us.
Giving At VIA
Financial giving at VIA is done by way of an offering box at the back of the sanctuary. All the tithes and offerings given go towards the ongoing mission/vision of VIA Comox Valley. Visitors are not expected to give as we see the discpline of tithing as the responsibility of a local congreatation. If you have any questions about giving at VIA be sure to ask us.
