Children's White Sunday

This past Sunday 10/15, the children gave a beautiful White Sunday presentation!

There were special songs, readings, and prayer.

Pictured right Olesya Noerper gives a Lesson.

A big mahalo to organizer Tusi Mayer, and her assistant Chandi Hinrichs, or as Stephen Noerper likes to call them, "our dynamic & divine duo!"
