Recap: June 1st + Hike

Friday night we had an awesome time at The Bridge. Arlen and Teayah opened us with a great worship set and Tai gave a word of encouragement from 2 Corinthians 1:3-4:

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God."

We had Adrienne and Christine come up to share announcements, including our hike that was the following morning (pics at the end of this post). 

And then T came up to share his close out message on The Sweet Life series (other messages on the media page), all about SELF-CONTROL.

The message was convicting and honest, I'd challenge you to listen to it from our blog!

After the message we always close out the night by grubbing on a delicious spread of food. This night it was stuffed bell pepper soup, veggies, fruit tarts, lentil soup, noodles, and kimchi fried rice. Everything was yummy!

Saturday morning, we met at 8am near the Trump Golf Course in Palos Verdes.

The hike was 2 hours round trip and the weather was PERFECT: sunny, with a cool breeze.

It took us about 30 minutes to get down to the shore, as we took the paved trail road to the water. It was pretty empty!

We sang a few worship songs and then Arlen gave a great devotional to challenge our hearts to seek more of God.

After the devotional, we got into groups and prayed for each other. And built rock pits!

We decided to push ourselves and take the steep path back to the road. It was a workout for sure!

To reward ourselves for a great hike and to fellowship together, we went to Yellow Vase.
