RECAP

This past week, we combined with Koinonia and Kairos for an All College Christmas Bible Study. We started the night with an awesome meal. Then we sang some Christmas songs. During Bible Study, Pastor Will spoke about the greatest gift of all, the birth of baby Jesus to be the Savior of the world and more importantly how we all need to personally accept and receive this great gift from God. After Bible Study, we had the mother of all gift exchange, where there was hilarity, craziness, lots of gifts to choose from, and a lot of dancing. See you next week. Otherwise, see you next year!!

 

Thanksgiving Celebration RECAP

Hi everyone. This past Sunday we had our annual Thanksgiving Celebration. It was such a great day of being thankful for the many blessings in life, eating a yummy turkey dinner, and a lot of laughing. Check out the pics below (more to come).

Also here is our trailer for Thanksgiving Celebration

Recap

We had a really great night during Halloween. The food was “ribby” delicious! Then Pastor Will gave us a message about how the original sin was a trick that was caused by the Devil himself! He then gave us tips on how to fight against Satan’s tricks so that we can stay away from temptation. Afterwards we had a long night of tricks (most agile/stoic/determined/etc) and treats (desserts). Did I mention there was even a mini carnival – photo booths, dodgeball, laser tag, pumpkin carving, basketball, and the list goes on. Hope to see you at our next event!

IUSM Open House

This past week, at IUSM Open House, there were many memorable moments. This includes playing a game where we become to super heroes, sing praise songs for the first time this school year, and running around UC Davis as we compete in a scavenger hunt. And during Bible Study, John challenged us to free ourselves from the things we pursue and instead to seek Jesus and his gift that will truly fulfill us. If you missed the Open House, check out the pictures and videos below. See you next Friday!!

New Student Welcome Night

Wow! What a night! It was so great to meet so many new international students and exchange students during the welcome night. The welcome night started with a fun trivia game about UC Davis. Then John, the speaker for the night, gave a short talk about what is that most important thing to consider in life. After the talk, we played more games where there was a lot of excitement, laughter, and prizes! It was such a fun night. So many people did not want to leave. For those that couldn’t make it welcome night, come join us for our upcoming events!!

Short talk with an important message

The short talk is not a lecture; there is also time for discussion too

The short talk was very thought provoking

What is IUSM?

We are a group of international undergraduate UC Davis students. We meet together every week to learn about Christianity and what the Bible has to say about life as a college student. We also hang out and have dinner together, celebrate birthdays, have fun events on the weekends, and even go out of Davis and explore nearby cities, national parks, and different yummy restaurants =) You don’t have to be a Christian to join us. All are welcomed. They say life is a journey. We say, find a group of friends to go through it together. See you at IUSM!
