AND COMING UP……

 

SHROVE TUESDAY/MARDI GRAS/FAT TUESDAY PANCAKE SUPPER

February 13, 2018, Tuesday, 6 p.m.

It is the day before Ash Wednesday marked by feasting and celebration before the observance of the Lent fast. Started in the Middle Ages, restricted and perishable food was all consumed on Shrove Tuesday to avoid spoilage and waste. Join us for a fun pancake supper!

 

ASH WEDNESDAY

February 14, 2018

We mark Ash Wednesday as the first day of Lent, which is traditionally a time of fasting and prayer in preparation for receiving or reaffirming baptism on Easter. We will begin the evening with a Soup Supper at 6 p.m. in Moore Hall and then move into the sanctuary at 7 o’clock for the service of the ashes.

 

COUNCIL MEETING

Sunday, February 18, in Kahu’s office after Aloha Hour.

 

CHURCH OFFICE CLOSED

Monday, February 19, Presidents’ Day

 

WEDNESDAY SOUP SUPPERS AND LENTEN REFLECTIONS

Beginning February 21, we will meet at 6 p.m. in Moore Hall for soup and then spend time reflecting and discussing the theme of “Blessings.” Each Sunday during Lent, Kahu will focus on a particular kind of blessing during his sermon and then use that topic for our time together the following Wednesday evening. Throughout the Season of Lent, Kahu will be following one chapter per week of John O’Donohue’s book, To Bless the Space between Us: A Book of Blessings. A limited number of copies in hardcover edition will be available for $18 beginning Ash Wednesday, February 14. Please contact Kahu or Penny if you would like a book reserved for you.
