Every Thursday during Chapel, CVCA faculty, staff, and students come together to worship, study God’s Word, pray, and participate in musical praise. It is a reminder amidst the busyness of the school week to set our hearts and minds on the things above (Colossians 3:2) and to exalt Jesus Christ as a community.
The purpose of Chapel is to create space and opportunity for students to connect with God in meaningful ways which are Scripture-focused and engaging. This includes corporate singing, Biblical teaching, celebration, and student/faculty involvement. Our goal for our chapel services is that our community would have the same heart as the King David when he wrote, “Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.” (Psalm 34:3)
CVCA Chapel Banner
More than just a theme, the imagery of a banner is from the Old Testament where it was something for people to rally under or a vow of loyalty. At CVCA, even though we may attend different churches or live in different cities, the banner we rally under is Jesus Christ. We follow Jesus, lift Him high, celebrate Him, and are linked together because of Him.
2019-2020 Banner: Press On
Every year we choose a book of the Bible to study during our weekly chapels. This year we are studying the book of Philippians. Multiple times in Scripture the Christian life is described as a race that requires great endurance to finish well along with many obstacles to overcome. Paul encourages his audience to “press on” and offers his own life as an example when he writes in Philippians 3:14, “I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Paul reminds all of us that Jesus is the ultimate prize at the end of the race of life that will not disappoint.
