W H A T
To wrap up 2018, we had our Gracepoint All-Team Retreat as our friends from So-Cal, Seattle, Minnesota, Austin, Hsinchu and the East Coast flew back home to Berkeley! We heard from God’s Word through Exodus, had praise & worship, and even heard from a guest speaker – Dr. Gary Burge. It was a “family time” being with our friends from across the nation. To end 2018 and to usher in the new 2019, we held our Watch night service at Harbor Bay where we received our key verse of 2019 – 2 Timothy 2:15.
Refreshed, challenged, and inspired by the time together, we’re looking forward to giving it our all with zeal and passion in 2019!
Guest Speaker: Dr. Gary Burge
Our friend, Dr. Gary Burge, joined us as our guest speaker!
Dr. Gary Burge is a Professor of New Testament at Calvin Theological Seminary. Prior to joining Calvin Theological Seminary, he served as a Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College and Graduate School for 25 years. He is also an author and co-author of many books, including commentaries that we use to gain greater insight in our daily devotions. Dr. Burge travels around the United States and abroad, especially the Middle East and its churches from Iraq to Egypt, speaking at conferences sharing what he has learned about the New Testament.
Prayer & Praise
When God’s people gather together, it’s an opportunity to passionately worship God with some good music, songs of praise & fervent prayer. We had exactly that in times of prayer & praise throughout the weekend!
