Weekly News of the Church

MEN’S BREAKFAST  Join the men of the church and their friends as they continue this winter tradition. The men meet each Tuesday (except the 4th Tuesday of each month when they are welcome to join the All-Church Breakfast) at 7:30 a.m. at Kalapaki Joe’s in Poipu for this time to catch up with returning snowbird friends and church members.

BIBLE STUDY  Kahu will offer a Bible study for people who would like to read passages in the Bible and learn about how they are interpreted; we will read biblical texts that encourage welcoming and accepting people who are different, as well as texts that are often used to condemn people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and those who question sexual and gender norms. There will be a time for questions and conversation. You are welcome to attend the Bible Study on Wednesday, February 6, at 7 p.m. at the Smith Memorial Parsonage (3281 Waikomo Road).

CHURCH ENSEMBLE  Singers are asked to meet at the church on Saturday, February 9, at noon for practice. You will be featured on Sunday, February 10, during Ka Mele Makana.

THE LATEST COCONUT WIRELESS  The Hawai`i Conference of the United Church of Christ shares news on the Coconut Wireless, the regular weekly newsletter of the HCUCC. If you would like to keep abreast on news, opportunities and events, please click HERE for the latest news. If you like what you see, you may subscribe and get every issue of the Coconut Wireless automatically and get the very latest news hot off the press.

LECTIONARY READINGS (Old & New Testament Readings for the Week)  Each week, Christians throughout the world read biblical passages from the Revised Common Lectionary, including the Old Testament, Psalms, New Testament, and Gospels. After three years, a good portion of the Bible is included and the cycle begins again. RCL passages are often read in church worship services, and Kahu Akana usually includes at least one of them on the following Sunday. This week’s readings are Isaiah 6:1-13; Psalm 138; 1 Corinthians 15:1-11; Luke 5:1-11.

PARKING REMINDER  We want to make sure that our visitors, our elderly, those with mobility issues, and those who carry things for worship, Sunday school and Aloha Hour are able to park on the church property. For all others who are able, please consider the following:

  1. Walk from home if you live in the neighborhood.
  2. Park at Koloa School / Koloa Library. We have their permission to use their parking area on Sundays.
  3. Park on Waikomo Road between Poipu Road and the Smith Memorial Parsonage.
  4. Carpool if there is more than one person attending from your household or even with a neighbor.

If you are running late and need to “double park” in order to attend on time, please move your car immediately after the worship service for those you may be blocking. (There are usually people leaving at that time, so you can hopefully take their space if you want to stay for Aloha Hour.)

CONSTRUCTION UPDATES  The crew continues construction on the soon to be brand new ladies’ restroom, which is scheduled for completion by the end of February! Feel free to take a peek on Sunday morning and see the progress!
  • As construction continues, the men’s restroom is back open and the women are asked to use the restroom directly across from the kitchen door or the porta-potty behind the kitchen.
  • The workers are also working on the church office expansion and plan to have that project done by the end of February as well.
Thank you for your patience during construction, and for everyone’s generosity to the capital campaign to make these projects possible!

Giving Opportunities

Mahalo nui loa for your generosity!!!

Please consider a gift to one or more of the following funds:

CHRISTMAS FUND OFFERING

The Christmas Fund Offering, administered by the United Church of Christ Pension Boards, provides direct financial assistance to retired and active UCC authorized ministers and lay employees and their surviving spouses, including pension and health premium supplementation, emergency assistance, and Christmas “thank you” checks. Each year, UCC congregations throughout the country collect this offering to assist faithful servants of God who are facing financial difficulties. We not only share hope, peace, joy and love with them; but they, in turn, pass these things along to others in their communities and in the world. We will collect the Christmas Fund offering on Sunday, December 23, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services. Special offering envelopes will be provided.

KOLOA UNION CHURCH GENERAL FUND

As usual, we come to the end of the year with expenses exceeding income for our general fund, which provides salaries for Kahu and staff, Sunday morning worship, connections to the wider church, our monthly and quarterly bills, and a large portion of our mission and outreach. December is our opportunity to “close the gap” and do our best to begin the new year in the black. For those who made financial commitments (pledges), please fulfill them if you are able. For everyone, please consider a Christmas present to Koloa Union Church by giving an “over and above” gift.

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

We are now able to expand the church office and build a brand new women’s restroom without borrowing any money! For those who made capital campaign financial commitments (pledges from 2015-2018), please fulfill them as you are able. That way, we can accomplish everything on our capital campaign list…and maybe even more!
