Pastor Miho presented her monthly report. Highlights included: Confirmation Sunday and Sunday School Reformation Sunday. Thank you to the parents, Sunday school teachers and youth for the support in making these activities happen. Also, she wanted to thank our members for stepping in communion set up and cleaned. Pastor Miho thanks God for each member of our congregation and she has seen how generous we can be.
