CIVA News.

We are very pleased to announce that CIVA has received $10,000 in scholarship support to aid pastors and other church leaders in attending our Between Two Worlds Biennial Conference, June 11-14. 


We are offering these scholarship funds for one simple, yet important reason: a robust conversation about “contemporary art and the church” will only be possible if church leaders are present.


Watch our short video to learn
what you can do to keep pipes from freezing

During a cold snap in 2014, we had more than 1,000 frozen pipe claims in just two weeks. And they came from all over the country.

In fact, our customers in warmer climates are often the most at risk because they don’t think they need to take the necessary precautions.

Freezing not only damages the pipes themselves, it also can cause water leaks and
mold damage.

Our short Safety Series video, Prevent Frozen Pipes, shows what you can do to help prevent this from happening to you. It also explains how to minimize damage if your pipes do end up freezing. Take a few moments to watch it today. And be sure to share it with others in your organization.
