Gracepoint Fellowship Church Austin Farewell & Yosemite Trip

Hope everyone had a great July 4th weekend — I know we sure did! From one packed week to another… here’s what’s coming up:

Austin Farewell

Gracepoint Fellowship Church, Austin

As most of you must have heard, our church in Berkeley and Davis is sending 11 members to plant Gracepoint Fellowship Church, Austin, with Pastor Manny and Sunny leading the team. Most of the team members will be leaving this Thursday, so we’ll be having a farewell program this Wednesday at First Pres in Berkeley (starting at 6pm with tapioca drinks in the courtyard). So please come, as this will give you better and bigger picture of what our church is really about (much more so than even G-Live).

For some of you older ones, Sarah Oh Song is among the few and the proud who will be leaving.

Yosemite Trip

We’re planning to have our Yosemite trip next week, from Thursday (7/17) to Saturday (7/19)! Please let us know the earliest day/time you can take off by filling out this form by 3pm this Thursday (7/10):


More details to come, but let me assure you — it will be a lot of fun!

The Usual Suspects

  • Friday @ 6:30pm: We’re back with our Summer IMs (in Alameda), followed by dinner and Bible sharing at Andy/Amy’s
  • Sunday @ 1pm: Our regular worship service at Willard.

    I can’t believe the Austin team is leaving so soon! I’m reminded to really make the most of every relationship bc you never know how long you have to love people. I’m going to miss everyone on the team as they commit to going to Texas. GO BEARS!! And I never thought I’d say it, go longhorns…

    Just to update everyone, the Team has arrived safely to Austin as of noon yesterday. Here’s a photo of them in the Austin airport:

    It’s hard to believe the Austin team is already gone…
    Pastor Manny & Sunny are very precious to me as they’ve been with my class ever since my freshman year in college and I can honestly say I would not be the preson I am today were it not for their persevering love that always hoped & always persevered.
    But I’m really excited to see how they are going to make ripples in Austin & really impact the lives of the people there as they have for me & so many here in Berkeley. Let’s continue to pray for them!!

    Wow, there seems to be a theme, ppl all can’t believe they are gone. It’s amazing that God is calling our church to plant other churches and now we’re at 2; from Gracepoint Fellowship Church, Berkeley, to Taiwan, to Austin!! Indeed God has been faithful to our church and I hope all of us can rise up to fill the void left by our Austin team!

    There’s been a change. Instead of Yosemite, we’ll be going to the Sierras for a camping trip!

    Here’s the info for the change: https://kairosfellowship2.wordpress.com/2008/07/15/the-master-plan-sierra-nevadas/.

    It was sad to see the first seven members of our Austin team leave, but I am thankful for the time we had together at the farewell. I think what impacted me the most during the farewell was seeing the directors all go up and sing the songs together.. I was challenged and inspired to take up the cross in my own life and to follow the examples that P. Manny and Sunny and all the others have set for us.
    Please also continue to pray for the other Austin team members who are still applying for jobs and waiting to go out there!

    I’m really excited as I’ll be heading to Austin Texas earlier tomorrow (wed, July 30) morning. My college friends and I will be visiting our church there, helping them settle down, doing some outreach, and even playing in a basketball tournament our church members are hosting. I’ll write more about it when I return, but overall, I’m really excited about it! Please pray for our time there!!
