AND COMING UP…
BREAKFAST, BEACH, BINGO! Saturday, September 23, 9:00 a.m. Join us at the big pavilion across Nukumoi Surf Company for a delicious breakfast followed by a rousing game of bingo! Bring your lawn-chairs and swimsuits. Donations for food costs are much appreciated. A sign up sheet is on the bulletin board.
COMMITMENT SUNDAY Please bring your completed 2018 commitment card on Sunday, October 1, when we bless our commitments for the coming year. Each year in the fall we ask our members and friends to let us know what they plan to give to the general fund during the following year. This is a great help to our Finance Committee and Church Council in planning the upcoming budget, which is then presented to the congregation in January each year.
FALL `AHA MOKUPUNI! Koloa Union Church will host this year’s fall gathering of the Kaua`i Association of the United Church of Christ on Sunday afternoon and evening, November 12. Details are forthcoming. Be sure to save the date on your calendar now, as we will need a lot of volunteers to help us host the Kaua`i churches!
