Come "like" us at our new Facebook location - If you’re part of City View’s Facebook group, the move is on! We have created a new home base for City View on Facebook -- the City View Facebook “page.” While both “groups” and “pages” have their benefits for us, the “page” is easier to join and allows people to “check in” on their smart phones whenever they’re on the church campus. Come "like" us. The group site will be leaving us soon. You can find the link here.
