·  Program includes selected chapters from Men’s Fraternity by Robert Lewis

Service Projects:
Service projects for the church, local community & beyond.

Recreation:
Various recreational events for fathers and sons to enjoy fellowship together.


The Knights consist of 4th – 12th grade young men accompanied by their fathers, who are expected to serve in some role of responsibility within the organization.

CVCKnights meet monthly on the 2nd Sunday starting in September and completing the year in May with the Passport 2 Purity weekend.
