MISSION MOMENTS VIDEO 4 – Biblical Community
We tend to toss around the phrase “biblical community” frequently, but we don’t always think about what it means. “Biblical community” likely means different things to different people, but at its core, it’s living together with fellow Christians in a way that exhibits the qualities the Bible calls us to have. In THIS NEW VIDEO, Jason Spodnik takes a few minutes to explain how this plays out when imperfect people try to live for Jesus in a setting that is much more than just a school.
THE ROYAL EVENING – MARCH 11
The Royal Evening Excitement is Building!
Royal Evening Auction items will slowly be revealed each day this week. Everyone is invited to take a peek HERE.
Some of the highlights in the Silent Auction are electric boat rides on Portage Lakes, voice lessons with Mrs. Moore, Mr. Riordan’s famous chocolate chip cookies, and a CVCA tailgate dinner with smoked pork and ice cream provided by Mr. Talbert, Mr. Harr, and Mr. Brower!
The Live Auction fun will include “rock star” graduation seats and parking, a Beaver Creek Colorado penthouse vacation, primetime CVCA football parking and seating, and an Extreme Driving Experience of seven glamorous supercars on a racetrack.
