Shepherd’s Corner – August 12, 2018

Many students are returning to school beginning this week, and many more will slowly be transitioning back into study mode in the following month. Whether it is reading for elementary school homework, doing endless research for a doctorate program, or going back into school after having a family, learning is a highly undervalued privilege that we, funny enough, desire after we’ve stopped.…

God loves His church more than anyone.  So we are thankful for His faithfulness to Inland Church for the past 34 years!  This is an important reminder during this transition time of the senior pastor search.  Let’s be comforted by this fact as we pray for God’s providing the right man for the job: one who loves the Lord, loves the Word,…

During our retreat we had a chance to listen to the missions report of Missionary Daniel Lee from X.  It was good to hear how God is working through him in the seminaries there and the mentoring network that he is developing.  I want to direct your attention to our missions bulletin board in the hallway, and encourage you to take a…

As we serve the local shelter at Inland Valley Hope Partners, we will never know who we will be meeting.  This quarter there are some families with babies at the shelter.  Please refer to the announcements to see what you can donate to help provide these babies with some everyday needs.  I want to especially encourage you to get involved with us…

As we return from another safe retreat, let’s thank God for his faithfulness!  It’s a privilege and blessing to be able to retreat together as a congregation.  Some churches don’t have the concept of retreating together as a whole congregation, while other churches can’t afford it.  We are blessed that we are capable of both.  So I hope and pray that you…

We have a total of 78 of our congregation heading up to retreat this Friday!  Counting everyone there are 96 people going to the retreat. It’s not an easy logistical task, but it’s something worth tackling if our congregation can grow together and mature in the faith!  What else in your life has been so worth it that you will take on…

The Guatemala team is now there helping Missionary Joo with VBS and any other needs they may have.  The team is a great mix of 4 upcoming freshmen, 4 current Y1, one Y2 (Andrew JDSN), and 1 FG (Deacon Jennie Lee comes to our service) and 2 team moms.  This is an exciting time for them to combine their hearts together to…

VBS just finished this past week.  It was my son’s first VBS.  He had a blast.  From the singing and dancing, craft making, sermon listening, all of these parts played a role for him to learn how God saves our shipwrecked souls.  I’m grateful to our church, especially the education dept staff, for all the hard work that was put into preparing…

Happy Father’s Day.  Whether your father is still with you today, or whether he was a great or tough dad, let us find rest in our Heavenly Father.  He is the one who shows us what true patience and love is, while perfectly exercising discipline and guidance.  This may be an impossible balance, but fathers, let us look to our Heavenly Father…

I hope you are looking forward to our 2nd annual EM retreat as much as I am.  Please join me in praying for this retreat!  This a a special time where the entire congregation can spend 2 and a half days together listening, discussing, and fellowshipping with one another. It’s such a special time where we can have our members get to…
