Wednesday Bible Study Recap: Genesis 1

Yesterday was our first Wednesday Bible Study of the Fall quarter.  We started with a delicious mapo tofu dinner and then had a short icebreaker as we got to know each other better.

Then we had a Bible Study on Genesis 1, learning about how we should approach studying the Bible.  Instead of just asking How the world was made, we needed to ask the more important question of Who made everything and Why.

The two main points through Genesis 1 were: 1) Main character is God 2) God is the Creator

We ended our time watching a moving video of God’s creation to the song, God of Wonders. Click on the video to watch.

Hope you can join us next week.

The much anticipated International Student Welcome Night finally happened on September 20!  We had a packed house at SCC Multipurpose Room and we almost ran out of food!  After a delicious dinner, we started off the night with a UC Davis trivia game.

After the excitement, we settled down to watch a funny but thought provoking skit called “Race of a Lifetime”

Our invited speaker, John, gave a short talk on creating and valuing meaningful encounters while we are in college. He recounted his own meaningful encounters that led him to understand Christianity. The audience was attentive throughout the time.

We had a lot of meaningful discussions afterwards as we made new connections with those who came.

We hope to see the many new friends we met that night to come back in the future, and may remember this night as one of the meaningful encounters in their lives!
