Shepherd’s Corner-February 16, 2020

I tell this to my Y1 from time to time because I strongly believe in this: Don’t only have Christian friends; have non-Christian friends as well. Being friends with non-Christian peers keeps our eyes open to the reality of the world we live in and helps us to know how to hold conversations with them as we build relationships with them. Conversely,…

Last Saturday our very own Andrew Chang JDSN got married! It was a joyous time to celebrate God’s love and their covenanting with one another. And it’s a wonderful time to witness our pastoral intern entering a new life stage. Let’s pray for him and his wife as they start their new life together, and also for the ministry life they will…

It’s been 13 years since the first iPhone came out (I googled, and the first android came out in 2008). Since then there has been a lot of changes and advancements to our smartphones and as you hold in your hands, they are faster, more responsive, brighter, waterproof, sandproof, anything you could think of, it has been upgraded and will be upgraded.…

Shepherd’s Corner-January 12, 2020

I believe when a church is regularly in the Word of God, not only will it be well fed but it will also be protected from falsehoods and misdirection. One does not know where to go when you don’t have a map. The Word of God is the map for every Christian (also instruction manual, love letter, etc but I digress). You…

Shepherd’s Corner – January 5, 2020

In 2020, we want to continue with the theme of “Be a Witness”. We started off last summer with our guest speaker President Joel Kim (WSCal) reminding us of the biblical call to be a witness. Then in the fall we were challenged to be a Witness to our Community through inviting our neighbors to Hallelujah Night and our church. Next month…

Shepherd’s Corner – December 29, 2019

Another year of God’s blessings and guidance is being shelved in our memories. Let’s be a church that remembers well. Let’s never forget all of God’s faithfulness and provisions in our lives and in the life of our church. This may not come naturally to us, so we need regular practice. So start with the easy ones: 1. recall any happy moments…

Shepherd’s Corner – December 22, 2019

Every Christmas ought to remind us of God’s incredible faithfulness. The sending of His Son to us is not only an incredible gift and an amazing truth that God is with us (Immanuel); but it marks an important reminder of what lengths God goes in order to keep a promise, in order to remain faithful to His covenant. It’s not hard to…

Shepherd’s Corner – December 15, 2019

You may have noticed the new sign in the front of our building. We are very thankful for the anonymous donor who offered to update the old tattered banner! Last month, while KM was using our chapel for weekday morning prayer and Wednesday Night Service, one of the KM members noticed the tattered banner. They had the desire to offer to improve…

Shepherd’s Corner – December 8, 2019

As part of our theme of “Be a Witness”, starting in January we will be doing the e100 Essential Bible Reading Plan from Scripture Union. One of the most important tools of being a witness is the Bible; because where do we best find out about Jesus? His Scriptures. So let’s familiarize ourselves with God’s Word. Instead of starting from the OT,…
