Mission Highlight: Thank you Pastor Kai, for sharing the Word of God today with us and for also updating us on our sister church, Grace Church of Alameda! Pastor Kaiwin Su has been a friend of Christ Church's previous Assistant Pastor, Jeff Locke, for a while and became the Assistant Pastor of Grace Alameda a few months ago.
Grace Alameda has recently changed their worship time and location. They used to meet at 4PM during Sunday afternoons in the suburb part of Alameda. Their new location is in a busier section of Alameda with more foot traffic, so new people walking right by their church building have been visiting them, adding more diversity not only in terms of ethnicity but also in terms of socioeconomic backgrounds.
Grace Alameda has recently decided to try something new with their home groups. Instead of having larger co-ed groups, they are prayerfully trying out smaller groups of 3-5 men and 3-5 women which will now be called discipleship groups. They are trying to create safer spaces for people to be more vulnerable so they can grow deeper.
Pastor Kaiwin enjoys praying with Pastor Jeff, especially for Christ Church, on a weekly basis. They are asking for us to keep Grace Alameda in prayer especially in light of the changes in time and location for their Sunday worship services and as they try out the new discipleship groups.
