Yes, it's happening! Come join us this Friday (4/27) for a special talk with delicious food, fun games, and a chance to meet new people. Don't miss out!
What a day...from 10-5 pm today the students and staff were hard at work washing cars to fundraise for Mexico and Cambodia mission trips! We estimate about 80 cars vacuumed, washed, soaped, and dried :)
The lay of the land:
Lot of car keys:
Yes...even Brando helped :)
Our lounge was playing the Warriors Game :)
Lots of vacuums:
Yesterday Element HS did community service in San Francisco with City Team California to participate in their community service event "Bags of Love". On Saturday we passed out bagged lunches to homeless people in San Francisco, and made many new friendships with the people there!

For our monthly Element hotspot last Friday (February 23, 2018), we first met separately by small groups for dinner. Afterwards, we all met together at the Oakland Ice Center for some ice skating! We have some pictures on our photostream on Flickr!
During the President's Day Weekend (2/16-18), Element had our winter retreat at Redwood Alliance. Our messages revolved around the book and character of Nehemiah, a man who had a lot of character, urgency, and ownership over the building of Jerusalem's wall. We learned that we are all builders of God's kingdom.
Special thanks to our guest speakers Jeff and Kristen as well as our Element staff who all inspired many of our students, as well as Agape for the great games! Also a thank you for the Klesis helpers, as well as staff from our church plants from Washington, Virginia, and Irvine.

Last week Jeff and Nathan joined us for a clear and engaging presentation busting myths around who Jesus is. Many of us walked away more confident to talk about our faith. Thank you guys!
But before we sat down for the talk, we had a fun...and quirky...icebreaker where people had a chance to show off their best imitation of the "pose" projected on the screen. Thanks Lishen (and Alberto pictured here)
After the talk, we got into 4 teams and had an intense time of sports
Anddd...last but not least we're going bowling tonight! Please bring $10 and socks :)
