Our History

A CVC History Timeline

The same year the White Sox won the pennant, and the average cost
of gasoline was 25 cents/gallon

The couples initially met in the homes of the charter members. When they outgrew the homes, they met at the Odd Fellows Lodge above Gambles on Main Street. This is the building many of us remember as the old Sonshine Book Store.

The new Antioch Evangelical Free Church members
chose a pastor then purchased four vacant lots
at the corner of Tiffany and Highview.
