Past Friday, several groups took the initiative to invite their friends at their staff’s home. For most, it was a very fun night for their friends and them. There were activities ranging from sports to games to conversations.
Past weekend, students went to Mount Hermon camp to spend quality time with each other and learning more about God and Christianity.
The first night we started off with prayer and worship. The first session was given by one of our staff, Vivian Park. The second session was given by our other staff, Chris. Our third message was given by John Kwon. Then, the Element High School Director, Matt Lee, gave the last message for our high school students.
Guys’ and Girls’ Time
The guys carried heavy stones which symbolized things weighing them down, so they went on a hike with the stones. The girls did a series of team relay races and talked about how they relate to women in the bible in the Old Testament.
Student Leads, a program for our high school students preparing to evangelize to their friends. So, We had a student lead getaway at our Monterey house, a Gracepoint (our church) owned home. It was a sweet time of hanging out and many jam sessions. We also watched the movie "To Save A Life" about evangelism.
The start of February had been amazing for us. On February 1, we went ice skating in Oakland, CA, it was very fun to skate for almost two hours with our friends and teachers. After ice skating, we were all so tired and sore, but we got through it since we had bible study afterward on the Book of John given by Vivian Park! Yay! Be sure to join us next Friday for more fun activities!
Last Friday, we just covered the end of the book of Mark. So we’re going to dive into the book of John next Friday. After last Friday’s bible study, our post activity with Josh and Rubin was amazing and fun as we were playing Jeopardy with random categories. Thanks Josh and Rubin!
This past Saturday, we went to Sierra Lodge to have some fun in the snow. We had fun snowball fights, sledding, and building a gigantic igloo. (picture below) It was also amazing that we were able to spend quality time with each other.
This week, we had Flex Friday, where we split up into smaller groups and bond throughout the night. After dinner and content, each group had time to hang out, which included playing games, making desserts, and watching basketball.
