Greetings!
 
MAHALO BISHOP CHANG!
Chang2012Many thanks to Bishop Chang for being with us this past Sunday, and for sharing his personal views on stewardship.  His talk was both inspiring and informative, and is a wonderful example of  God's blessings being shared joyously!  Bishop Chang will be back this Sunday, September 2, for both services.  His family will be joining him, so be sure to stay and fellowship with the Chang's this Sunday!
