This past weekend the sophomores went up to the Sierra’s for the Sophomore Discipleship Retreat. We had a really good time not only talking about real community, but experiencing it as we centered ourselves around God’s word.The time together this past weekend was short, but it was powerful reminder that God is at work and has amazingly chosen the church, and through ordinary people, wants to do extraordinary things.We came down from the mountain refreshed and encouraged as we were able to see just a little more clearly what a great blessing it is to be part of such a rich community.
Are you READY? Gracepoint Summer Rally is right around the corner, and it's something you definitely do NOT want to miss out on. Imagine this. Gracepoint churches from ALL around the country (and the world!) uniting together in Berkeley to get fired up for God together through three awesome days of fellowship and training. It'll be an amazing opportunity to close the gaps of distance to gather together and become rejuvenated and strengthened in our faith and share in God's vision for us as a church! 06.20.13-06.23.13. Save the dates, and we'll see you there! Gracepoint Summer Rally from Koinonia Davis on Vimeo.

We were off to an early start this past Saturday to explore all that Picnic Day to offer. We were feeling pretty hungry and wanted breakfast, so we decided to give cow milking a try. Bring your own cereal ;) Haha just kidding. We all got just a few squirts at most. Probably not the ideal form of milk to eat your cereal with anyway..Some us learned (or, tried to learn) how to throw a lasso to catch things. It looks relatively easy, but really, it’s a lot more tough than it looks. Some people caught bulls..While others caught people…Since our originally planned breakfast plan didn’t really follow through, we had our fill at the DC where there was an abundance of cereal and milk among other delicious foods. We also got to watch our very own Isabella perform with her Gospel Choir! Afterwards, we craved dessert and so we made our way over to grab free samples of liquid nitrogen ice cream. Mmm, delicious :)We roamed around for a bit and made our way to the Arboretum to sit, relax, and watch Battle of the Bands.What was your favorite part about Picnic Day? :)
Last weekend, the Upperclassmen (Juniors & Seniors) went on a retreat to Dutch Flat and had the opportunity not only to relax, throw some laughs around but also, view our lives as what its called to be, ministers.Here is a glimpse of the monument we built as a reminder of the many commitments, reflections we made during this blessed time. Everyone went out to search for the flattest rock after minutes of scouring, each upperclassmen and class-lead were able to place a stone gradually and eventually as each cornerstone was combined, our monument was complete.After a long day of hiking and eating, the senior brothers relaxed around the campfire.As the retreat was coming to an end, the sisters recounted their favorite moments they experienced during retreat, like hearing a duet of “Peter, Peter” by Kevin & Gina Han.The three days went by so quickly and although we went back to our lives filled with commitments, academics we will always hold onto the image of building our lives within a community. It truly was such a joyous time.

There we split into 3 teams and had some epic laser tag battles. Here are two brave soldiers in a possibly staged photo....... while another group played king kong shower, bamboo (below), and pterodactyl!And what would a weekend be without a beautiful trip to Sac by the river:You can vote for what was more awesome... late night laser tag at the deathstar OR spending a beautiful Saturday morning by the Sac river!Hope to see you next week!

Before the busyness of the new quarter began to settle in, the frosh went to Sierra Lodge for a short and sweet getaway! It was a bit too cold for kayaking (sorry, false advertising), but it's okay because we had plenty of fun regardless :)We warmed up to each other with a unique icebreaker that involved a lot of acting, laughing, dancing, dancing, and..did I mention dancing?And then we called it a night....Just kidding. The night was still young! We migrated over to the gazebo to toast up some marshmallows and sing some songs. There's nothing quite like fillin your belly with banana boats, cup ramen, and s'mores at 1 AM in the morning..We did called it a night (eventually), and woke up to go on an incredibly strenuous hike...probably equivalent to the distance between Tercero and the ARC. Yes, obviously, very strenuous :p That eventually turned into climbing up rocks and doing whatever we could to avoid falling into the water. Most of us succeeded, with the exception of a few unfortunate brothers :p.Ah, what a fun way to start off the quarter! If you weren't able to come, hope you can join us next time :)
