This past Sunday we gathered to worship with Rev. Mark Nakagawa, our District Superintendent. He brought our Sunday message. After worship we gathered in Fellowship Hall for refreshments and convened our annual Charge Conference.
Rev. Mark commended our church for its continued hospitality. He complimented our church for its overall upkeep. He thanked us for hosting district events.
During Charge Conference our members shared the ministries that blessed them such as the Wednesday Gather Service, the special worship services like our Interfaith Thanksgiving Service, the many outreach programs (Lunches of Love, 2nd Harvest Volunteering), and the community events such as Trunk or Treat and the Easter Breakfast and Egg Hunt.
Rev. Mark spoke about the upcoming denominational General Conference in May. He said, that even though our denomination faces some rough times ahead, AUMC should continue to focus on the ministries that are alive and well here.
Thank you to all who attended and shared about how God is working through AUMC.
