This past week during RESONATE, CVCA students experienced a great three days of meaningful worship, in-depth sermons, and community when they were challenged to a deeper level of understanding and interacting with God. Pastor Joe Coffey of Christ Community Chapel returned to CVCA and challenged us with the concept of a “shadow mission” within our lives. A prime example of this mission can be seen in Isaiah 6:8: “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!’” We don’t fully know what it is that God calls us to do in certain moments, but Pastor Coffey challenged us to consider what God has for us.

CVCA’s Christmas Outreach
Student Leadership Council is excited to lead CVCA’s annual Christmas outreach to provide items for Urban Vision, an Akron community ministry founded by a CVCA graduate. Neighborhood children who participate in Urban Vision’s programs and Bible studies have the opportunity to earn “UV bucks” for attendance, good behavior, and good and improved grades. The children learn responsibility and can use their “bucks” to purchase Christmas gifts for family and friends at the Urban Vision Christmas Store. Our Connections groups will collect items such as toys, household goods, and personal items. CVCA students will be assigned their gift item this week and should bring it to their Homeroom class on Friday, December 8. All gifts are in a $10.00 range. Questions about gifts or Urban Vision can be directed to Mrs. McMullen.
