“Building with Love”
On Sunday, Kahu Alan Akana will be sharing from Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians and his deep desire to build communities of faith that are based on unconditional love and affirmation. Come and help us build with love!
We have plenty of room for attendees to sit in a safe distance from others in the sanctuary, on the patio, and in Moore Hall where folks can watch the worship service on a large screen.
Please put your face mask on as soon as you arrive on church property and be sure to familiarize yourself with all of our pandemic guidelines, including some recent changes (see our homepage).
“ADOPT A FAMILY”
January and February Project
|Koloa Union Church has adopted a family who is temporarily homeless on the island: a single mom and her 1-year-old son. They have lost their housing since the pandemic and found themselves living in a tent. They are on “the list” for housing assistance and need help to just get by while they wait. In the meantime, they are in urgent need of some shelter reinforcement to help with the rain and wind, as well as some covered area that can function as extended living space for the boy to play. Please consider monetary donations to go toward purchasing basic needs or else contact the church office if there is something in particular you would like to donate. (We have a list of specific needs.)
Donations are requested by Feb 21st.
Mahalo to everyone for your continued support!

Weekly Readings from the Bible
During challenging times, reading the Bible on a daily basis is a great source of inspiration and hope. I encourage you to read and meditate upon the Scriptures of the Revised Common Lectionary and ask yourself how God might be showing up in the Scriptures for you, what God might be saying to you, and what guidance you might find as you share God’s love in creative and meaningful ways.
—Kahu Alan Akana
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 reading each Sunday.
Readings for January 24 are Jonah 3:1-10; Psalm 62:5-12; 1 Corinthians 7:29-31; Mark 1:14-20.
Readings for January 31 are Deuteronomy 18:15-20; Psalm 111; 1 Corinthians 8:1-13; Mark 1:21-28.
Readings for February 7 are Isaiah 40:21-31; Psalm 147:1-21; 1 Corinthians 9:16-23; Mark 1:29-39.
