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.
2018-2019 Banner: Sing a New Song
Every year we choose a book of the Bible to study during our weekly chapels. This year we are studying the book of Psalms and the vast variety of testimonies given about our God through the various genres found in the book.
Great honesty can be found in the many genres of the Psalms – praise to frustration and everything in between. This variety is portrayed in this year’s banner through 150 colored squares. Each square corresponds to a Psalm and indicates its genre or type: wisdom (darker blue), royal (peach), lament (light blue), hymn of praise (red), thanksgiving (gold). The banner composition feels like a woven textile telling a story about God’s faithfulness through every season of life.
