The United Methodist Church in L'viv celebrated its second birthday this Sunday. It's hard to believe that it was just two short years ago that this wonderful community was planted.
The Sunday School is still going strong. The weather was very cold and the youngest kids weren't allowed to walk to church. Here the pastor's son writes a card with the help of one of the Sunday School teachers.
We began with a worship service. During the coldest months our numbers dip a little, so it was refreshing to have everyone come out for worship and communion. We are so proud of our leadership and the wonderful job they are doing!
Erika found birthday hats for us to wear and everyone came together for cake and tea.
Not everyone wanted to be in the picture, but here we are gathered around our two birthday cakes. Maybe each year we'll have another person bring a cake until the church is old enough that everyone bakes a cake and shares it with their small group! This could be a dangerous tradition!
