Congratulations Seniors!

By Steve

Congratulations seniors! This past weekend we celebrated with all our graduating seniors, cheering in force! This was a milestone year for us since the graduating seniors were our very first class when we came down to San Diego 4 years ago. Way to go, and we'll be praying for you as you go through this big transition into working life!

Post-finals TFN and Bonfire!

By Steve

Yesterday we had our very last TFN of the year! Pastor Daniel gave a message from Hebrews 12. We talked about how the great cloud of witnesses, those who lived lives of faith like in Hebrews 11, should be our reference group. Therefore we need to push back against comfort, against sin, and keep moving forward. Pastor Daniel even showed a very memorable video about a strangler fig to illustrate the point. After Bible study we went to Coronado beach for a nice bonfire and glow-in-the-dark capture the flag! Here's some pictures:

Epic Son of God TFN!

By Esther

This past Friday, many students wanted to be off campus to avoid the craziness of Sun god. So instead of starting at 6:30, our usual time, we had a beach outing to La Jolla Shores at 4pm. Thankfully the weather wasn't as scorching as it was earlier in the week, so after lathering on the sun block, we messed around and enjoyed the nice weather. No beach outing is complete without a bbq dinner! We split off into classes and had bible study around campfires. But though the sun went down, the fun didn't stop there. The night was still young, so we headed for round 2: laser tag! We got a private room (and a discount, whoo!) where we played games as we waited our turns to play laser tag. Some people even raced. In all, a good night.

Music Mondays: Already There by Casting Crowns

By Esther

Shout outs to my peers! Uncertainty is a scary place to be. The senior class is 4 weeks until graduation. And while some people have their post-grad lives figured out, many of us, like myself, don't. It can be really easy to get caught up in anxiety when you don't understand what is happening. We've spent all of our lives knowing for the most part what lies ahead the next year (more school). But for the first time, we are pretty uncertain. We cling to the vows we made at our senior retreat to follow God, but that doesn't mean that this transition isn't scary. From where I'm standingLord it's so hard for me to seeWhere this is goingAnd where You're leading meI wish I knew howAll my fears and all my questionsAre gonna play outIn a world I can't control This song reminds me that no matter what happens, God is still in control. It's a simple message, but again, something we forget all too often. Even our lives are all a piece of His plans. When I'm lost in the mysteryTo You my future is a memoryCause You're already thereYou're already thereStanding at the end of my lifeWaiting on the other sideAnd You're already thereYou're already thereFrom where You're standingLord, You see a grand designThat You imaginedWhen You breathed me into lifeAnd all the chaosComes together in Your handsLike a masterpieceOf Your picture perfect planWhen I'm lost in the mysteryTo You my future is a memoryCause You're already thereYou're already thereStanding at the end of my lifeWaiting on the other sideAnd You're already thereYou're already there I think this message is applicable no matter where you are right now. We all face uncertainties and we get afraid because we have no idea how things will possibly work. But God is never frazzled or uncertain. He knows. And so we will never be forgotten or neglected. I have so many questions, and I can't wait for this moment when they all get answered: One day I'll stand before YouAnd look back on the life I've livedI can't wait to enjoy the viewAnd see how all the pieces fit Hang in there, guys. Whatever you may be dealing with, God is in control, and He works for the good of His people. "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28.
