Dear Canyon View Family,
As many of you have heard, the US Supreme Court has recently issued a couple of rulings indicating that some of the restrictions placed on churches are not constitutional. At Canyon View, we have worked hard to ensure that we are in compliance with the law. That is why we are outside Sunday mornings. However, the Elders are aware that soon the weather will not be conducive to having class and worship outdoors. At that time, we will move worship and class indoors. This move may happen with little or no notice.
When the move happens, we will continue to broadcast services via the FM transmitter for the drive-in service. However, our brothers and sisters in their cars will not be able to see the preacher or song leader. As before, when we move indoors, we will wear our masks and maintain social distancing.
The Elders understand that our members have different personal health concerns, different tolerances for risk, different views on the virus, and different understandings of our call to worship. We will continue to offer the online worship for those who are at a higher risk.
God is in control. There have been viruses and diseases from the time before Christ. Viruses likely spread among Christians during the first century as well. God knew the coronavirus would come. We believe he knew that churches would face tough decisions on how to respond. We will continue to worship without fear—but not recklessly because the virus is real.
We constantly pray for the congregation and for wisdom.
In Christian love,
The Elders of Canyon View Church of Christ

A Back-to-School update:
Your generous donations this unusual school year have provided an abundance of learning and health-related supplies. We’ve already made two deliveries. Both schools were overwhelmed by the outpouring of your giving.
This is a huge “THANK YOU” to everyone in the Canyon View family who donated backpacks, school supplies and money for this very different school year. Your generosity allowed our congregation to reach out to three learning facilities. Beside the usual back-to-school items, we were able to provide “on request” supplies that were unique to distance learning and home visits. The staff at each site was overwhelmed by your outpouring of support.
Keep in mind that this is a once-a-year community outreach. Please continue to support the on-going ministries of Blue Bags and Ronald McDonald House which are year-round examples of “caring and action in the community”.
Here is a letter from Eileen Moreno, Ed.D, Principal at Carlson Elementary:
Thank you, your church, and the retirement center for your generous donations and the purchase of the planners. We are so appreciative and gratified for having this partnership with you. We are also very pleased to continue the Blue Bags food distribution.
As you know, this is a challenging time for schools and unfortunately we hear the negative more often than positive so having the support of the community definitely helps to keep things in perspective and makes us happy. Thank you for that!

The San Diego Blood Bank is in need of donors. Since several Canyon View members have donated in the past, here is updated information for those who might consider scheduling an appointment. Their website is sandiegobloodbank.org. or, if you already have an account, MySDBB.org which is a new portal. Also, you can call 1-800-469-7322 to schedule an appointment. At this time, appointments are required. No walk-ins are permitted. The Blood Bank is slowly putting bloodmobiles back into service but the majority of donors are going to the established 6 donation sites. If you schedule an appointment, please ask for your donation to be credited to our Canyon View account. The code is CVCV, which is a change. Thank you, in advance, for considering this incredible service of giving.
If you have questions or comments, please contact Carol Simonson or Kenneth Heath.
Dear Canyon View,
After two and a half months, we are finally able to open our building to a worship service in the auditorium on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM, starting June 7th. It has been a long wait. We are thankful for your prayers, patience, and understanding during this time. Please continue being patient as we will be proceeding slowly, cautiously, and prayerfully.
As before, we are always concerned about everyone’s health and safety, and we are aware that not everyone is ready for worship in our auditorium. Therefore, we will continue the 8:00 AM Drive-In and Courtyard Service. The 10:00 AM Online Service will continue as well.
For the 10:00 AM Auditorium Service, a nursery and toddler room will be available for you to supervise your own children. In the nursery it is 0-1 year old and in the toddler room 1-2 years old. Please be sure to write your name and contact number on the whiteboard as you enter so that we will have a record of who has used the room. There will be “busy bags” available if you wish to keep your children with you. At a later date, we expect to add a 20-minute children’s worship for children 3 years old to the third grade during the 10:00 AM auditorium sermon. The youth ministry will not be meeting in person this Sunday, June 7th. Austin, our youth minister, is working out a plan that will be communicated to parents in future announcements that will outline how we will continue to serve the youth in our congregation as we phase into reopening the building for use.
In keeping with the State of California guidelines, there is an imposed limit of 100 people in the building at a time. The pre-screening medical protocol is in effect. Please refer to the Covid Protocol for Canyon View sent to you last week by mail and email or view the documents here: COVID Worship Service Protocols.
These assemblies will each have their own method of fellowship and interaction. We pray that everyone will make the best-informed decision about which service is right for them at this time. The most important thing is that you worship! Our assemblies will continue to be less than an hour and will be God glorifying, encouraging, and simple.
We look forward to the opportunity of being together again!
May God continue to bless you and bless the Canyon View Family.
With the love of Christ,
The Elders of Canyon View
