Our first retreat was at Mission Springs from August 19-21, with IGC joining New Hope Church in San Jose. The theme of the retreat was “Encountering God” – that our greatest need is not a good life, or a job, or even health, but to know God and experience his grace. Undoubtedly, the best moment of the retreat was the campfire on Saturday night when Pastor SooSang led New Hope in praying for IGC’s work as a church plant. It was a powerful experience to know the love and support of our new Christian friends, and to be reminded of the important work of the gospel in the East Bay. We come back refreshed and with renewed commitment for gospel life together.
