Come Worship with Us

Sundays at 10:30 AM

 

E Komo Mai! (Welcome!) to Koloa Union Church

We are followers of Jesus with a distinctly Hawaiian identity. Some of us are descendants of the native people of these islands and we celebrate with the language and customs of our ancestors. As an inclusive community of faith, reflecting the diversity of the people of Hawai‘i, we respect all cultures and backgrounds.

Our mission is to embrace, enhance and nurture God’s diverse and unique faith community, all to the glory of God.

Whoever you are and wherever you have been on life’s journey, you are welcome here!

A Message from Kahu Akana

3735-dwtx-do-justice-logo-final

On Sunday, I shared three stories that brought me hope and inspiration during the week. I also reminded the congregation that we are creating the stories of today—stories that future generations will tell. I invite you to consider what stories you want to be told about you and our generation, how you want to be remembered, and what changes you might make in your life and in the world around us in order to be remembered for justice, kindness and humility. You can click the link below to see the full sermon from Micah, chapter 6, in which the prophet tells us what God’s longing is for us:

…to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God

I trust that you will create a beautiful story with your life!

Aloha nui!

Kahu Alan Akana
