Experience Fall Bible Conference Yourself

August 18, 2017

Chapel speaker and audienceWe'll kick off the fall semester with our annual Fall Bible Conference, which is always a highlight of the year.

This year's speaker will be Mark Vroegop, Senior Pastor at College Park Church in Indianapolis. Mark is also a Cedarville alumnus and dad to three current students!

Mark will be challenging our students on how to kill the power of sin before it destroys them. Services will be held Monday through Wednesday at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., and Thursday at 10 a.m. It will be an incredible time of worship and spiritual renewal.

Want to be a part of this incredible experience yourself? You can live stream all services via chapel livestreaming or watch later from the chapel archive. It's a great way to stay connected with your student!

Watch the video below for a preview of Mark's topic for the 2017 Fall Bible Conference.

Tips for a Smooth College Drop-Off

August 9, 2017

Mom dropping off daughter

From one parent to another … dropping your child off at college is hard (especially if it’s your first time!). As you prepare to bring your student to Cedarville to begin his or her college career, please be assured of two things:

  • Your son or daughter rests securely in God’s hand. He has great plans for them (Jer. 29:11) and will never leave them alone (Heb. 13:5).
  • Cedarville University will do everything we can to love and support your child — personally, academically, and spiritually. We are so honored that you have entrusted your child to us, and we take that responsibility very seriously.

I recently came across an article — College Move-In Day Is Around the Corner — that I thought might be helpful as you prepare for Getting Started Weekend. It gives some great ideas of what to expect as you drop your student off, as well as some tips on how to make it go well. Be warned — it might make you tear up, but hopefully it’ll help you as you make this next big step in your role as a parent.

We’re looking forward to having you and your student on campus very soon. And don't worry, Mom and Dad, you've got this!
