Chapel Time

Chapel Time, a time to come, praise, reflect, pray, and listen to a short devotional. For those who attend, it definitely offers a peace from the business of the day as they connect with God. It is kind of like a brief interlude to the midterms, papers, projects, and more that seem to always demand attention. 

This semester we have been offering Chapel Times on Monday and Wednesday nights at 10:00pm at DL. All are welcome to attend. Stop by if you're interested!

Thanksgiving Retreat

This last weekend, November, 11th-13th,  we attended our annual Thanksgiving Retreat. Often times we get so caught up in our day-to-day lives that we forget about all that God has done. That is what made this weekend so special. We got to slow down, watch recap videos, hear messages, and be reminded of how God has been active in our lives this past year. 

Check out pictures from the retreat below. 

Sophomore Getaway to Monterey

What better way to unwind and reset from midterm season than a weekend getaway to the beach?

On the weekend of October 28-29, our sophomore class took a step back from the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area to head south to Monterey Bay (the other bay area!) for a fun weekend of sightseeing and fellowship. They stayed at one of our ministry homes, called Monterey House, located not too far from Seventeen Mile Drive, one of the gems of California. As great as the sights were though, it was the fellowship that happened indoors that stole the show! Upon arriving at the house, one of the sophomores exclaimed, "This place is a freaking mansion!" And another one of the sophomores commented that playing board games with each other and even slicing squashes with each other was his favorite part of the trip. And furthermore, there was a birthday celebration over the weekend as well! All in all, a fun getaway weekend indeed!

Freshman Potluck

What can be better than a potluck, carving pumpkins, and a PUMPKIN LAUNCHING TREBUCHET?

I don’t think much can either. On Saturday, October 29th, our Koin Freshmen got to visit our Harbor Bay campus (HB for short) for a potluck, pumpkin carving, sports, and an insane pumpkin launching time. Though the home built trebuchet didn’t launch as far as it was designed, some projectiles still went up to 40 feet!

About the event, one frosh exclaimed, “A pumpkin actually broke the trebuchet’s platform on the last launch! The expression on Roy’s face was priceless!”
