Last week, the staffers went on a weekend retreat to Yosemite for some staff bonding time. They decided they were done with rowdy college kids, and needed some mental and physical rejuvenation, mostly mental rejuvenation. Just kidding, we all know they can’t get enough of us! Because of the retreat on Friday, we switched things up this week, having a double whammy of bible study on Thursday on Ephesians 1 and bouldering on Friday.
Kevan gave an introductory bible study on Ephesians, and the exciting thing is that Klesis is trying something new this summer—for the first time, students and recent grads will get the opportunity to get trained up and teach bible studies on Fridays! We’ll be hearing from Dave and Jean next week =).
After bible study, Klesis loaded up the cars and off to the SF Battery Park we went. Battery Park used to be wartime structures along the coast near the Golden Gate Bridge during the Civil War, but now that it’s all spooky and abandoned, it was perfect for a late night round of ‘Underground Church.’
After some intense times of pretending to be underground Christians hiding from the cops, we had to comfort ourselves with some American food, ending the night with animal style fries and shakes at In n Out!
On Friday, the seniors hosted the sophomores while the staff headed off to Yosemite. We couldn’t let the staff have all the fun though, so the rest of Klesis went to go climb some real mountains.
Some beasted up the rock wall, while most went up like old grandmas and grandpas, feeling all those long hours of coding, in n out double doubles, and dusty RSF passes catching up to them.
Of course the night wasn’t over yet, that’s just not how we do. Afterwards, the klesistas headed off to the apartments for iron-chef-like curry and a manly time of finger jousting battles. One thing led to another and soon enough the klesistas broke out in old TC dance moves, funkay dance moves, kpop dance moves, Spanish raps, and Disney songs.
Meanwhile, the klebros unleashed themselves at DL, fighting an ultimate, adrenaline rushing nerf gun battle to the death.
Only two words can sum up the lesson we’ve learned about the klebros…..
Don’t miss out next Friday, June 29th at Camden @ 6:30pm! Look for Eric, Jonathan, and Emiliana to get your rides!
