What is Convocation?  

Convocation is a Spiritual Kick-Off to the 2023-24 school year. “Convocation” is defined simply as a formal gathering. As we begin our year, we invite our VCS community for an evening of worship, prayer, and community. Convocation is open to our whole K-12 community, alumni, friends, family, and partners. Our 45-minute service will include a time in worship, a spiritual charge by Dr. Daugherty and Pastor Steve Dang, and a time of prayer for our community. Following our Convocation service, we will enjoy dessert and a time to connect as a community.  

Theme Passage

Be a Light

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16 NIV).
