What about a Fall Bible Conference or Missions Conference? Were you at Cedarville when faculty, staff, and students carried hymnals in procession from the “old” chapel to the “new” chapel? When I meet with Cedarville alumni around the country, I often ask them, “What’s one thing you would never change about Cedarville?” Nearly every time the alumnus says without hesitation, “Chapel.” Around here, it’s often been said that “Chapel is the heartbeat of campus,” and I can say without reservation, from my own experience and the testimony of generations of Cedarville alumni, that it’s absolutely true. Maybe you attended chapel in the Alford Auditorium, in the chapel that became the bookstore and is now the History and Government Center, in the “old” Jeremiah Chapel that is now the Apple Technology Resource Center, the current Jeremiah Chapel in the Dixon Ministry Center, or another space on campus. Regardless the venue, one thing has remained the same: every day at 10 a.m. the entire Cedarville campus gathers to worship together, pray together, sing together, open the Bible together, hear from God’s Word together, and respond together. And we certainly have no intention of changing that legacy! So, please pray with us each day at 9:55 a.m. as we gather for chapel. When you can, join us on campus in person for a chapel service, or watch online through Facebook Live or on our chapel livestreaming site: cedarville.edu/chapellive . You can be part of the continuing chapel experience at Cedarville University, and we would be delighted to welcome you home the next time you are in the area. Make it a point to visit and get back to campus soon! For His Glory and our exceeding joy, Rick Melson, Ph.D. Vice President for Advancement V ANTAGE P OINT
