Life Church Journey 2018

  • Insoo & Angela's Home 67 West 1st Avenue Vancouver, BC, V5Y 0E1 Canada (map)

I am writing this note from Harper Library at the University of Chicago where I was a student 20 years ago. Back then, my plan was to come here to study biology and then go to med school so that I can become a doctor. But God had other plans.
 
Little did I know that I would meet a handful of passionate followers of Jesus, and that together we would end up planting a new church in the city called Hyde Park Vineyard.
 
This past weekend was the church’s 20th anniversary service, and many of the original small group members were able to come together for this special celebration.
 
“Look what God can do!”
 
This was the thought that kept coming back to me. “Look what God can do! Look how God can use some college students to start a church that would eventually plant other churches in Chicago, IL, New Haven, CT, Princeton, NJ, and send missionaries to Wales, Germany, Japan, and the Middle East! Look what God can do!”
 
Even though I came here to teach at the anniversary celebration service, I feel like this trip was actually more about me bringing something of this story back to Vancouver, and to ask together: “What does God want to do with us in 2018?”
 
I know that many of you are fasting right now. I am sure you are praying about lots of important things. But would you please also join me in praying for our church planting community in this very significant season in the life of our church plant?
 
We are going to do something a little different this Sunday at group. We are going to take a little break from our study in the Sermon on the Mount and I want to take this time to share a few things that I believe that God has put on my heart to share with you. We will also take time to worship God and pray together for the journey ahead of us.
 
I really hope that you will make every effort to be there on Sunday. I think t it’s going to be a significant moment for us all. Thanks!

Sincerely,
Insoo Kim
