Hi everyone! We wanted to celebrate Thanksgiving with all of you! On November 24th, we will be meeting with our sister groups from all across Southern California in Irvine to celebrate Thanksgiving together! We will have a baptism time, thanksgiving message, a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, and some fun performances. We will have cars driving up to Irvine, so please contact us for a ride!
We will be hosting an all Southern California International Student Winter Retreat in January from 1/24 - 1/26 at the Palomar Christian Conference Center, a very beautiful and exciting campground! This will be a three-day retreat where we will spend time together to get to know each other better, have some fun, and study the Bible! We will also be celebrating Chinese New Years together, and doing different fun activities provided by the conference center. It’s a great time to take a break from school and learn, especially as this will be before school gets busy. We hope you can attend!
On Sundays, we meet for church service at one of our homes and start with some light cooking preparation. Then we sing praise songs together, have a Bible message, and eat the meal we prepared together! If you’re interested, you can either contact us directly, on the website, or on WeChat. Rides are at 11:45am for both on and off campus. Whether you're a Christian or not, we hope you can join us!
Hi everyone! We will be having our Fall Retreat this Saturday, November 2nd, in Irvine! It will be a great time to get away from the stress of homework, midterms, school, and other things and instead take time to think about the important things of life. For students who are interested about Christianity, we will be having a time to address any questions you may have as well as talk a bit more about Christianity. For our Christian students, we will be taking the day to go over the book of Daniel in depth. Afterwards, we will have a fun sports time with our other Southern California groups! We hope that you will be able to make it!
