We also pray for St. Jacob We had our annual meeting this past Sunday and it went well. Now we move on into this new year of 2017 which will have so many new and exciting opportunities for ministry.
CPAM and Alice were great The Children’s Performing Arts of Miamisburg just concluded their production of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. It was a great show and well received by the community. Can you believe all three shows were sellouts? How terrific to have so many fine young people in our building.
December was sure busy with our big holiday festival, a parade through downtown Miamisburg, the annual Gebhart Tavern Christmas and the Miamisburg Community Chorus concert at the Baum Opera House. We also had a movie night with cookie decorating and our big Sunday School Christmas program. We even had a very nice Sunday School Christmas program with lots of children involved. What a busy time!!!
