Thanksgiving Meal Boxes
We will be collecting and creating Thanksgiving meal boxes for 10 local families who are struggling to make ends meet.
If you signed up to bring food items, please bring them to the church by November 19.
Boxes will be packaged and delivered to the families by the Koloa Union Church Outreach Committee and Youth Group.
We will stuff Christmas stockings with special items and gift cards for 10 local families who are struggling financially this year. We collect change, cash and checks throughout the year in our spare change jar. If you have some extra funds in your bank account or wallet, please consider an extra gift to make Christmas even merrier for a local family. If you know of any families who could use some extra help this holiday season, contact the church office.
The deadline for donations for this year’s stockings is December 3.
Note: We primarily pay for this outreach through the change jar, to which people contribute throughout the year, and from personal donations. So be sure to look for spare change lying around at home or in your car.
You can contribute financially to this ministry by writing “Holiday Outreach” on the note section of your check made out to “Koloa Union Church” or on the “Comment” box when you give online.
We have a vibrant and active youth group for middle and high school students, which meets at least monthly on a Sunday and usually includes a time of learning, prayer, checking in with one another, fellowship, lots of fun and a delicious meal!

Prayers & Squares
Prayers and Squares Tuesday, December 5th 10:00 A.M. – 1:00 P.M.
Prayers and Squares is a ministry promoting prayer by creating beautiful hand-tied quilts and offering them to people in crisis or those whom we wish to offer a special aloha. A prayer is said with each knot that is tied in the quilt. When recipients put the quilts it over themselves, they are covering themselves with our prayers. Our motto: “It’s not about the quilt; it’s all about the prayers.”
The Prayers and Squares Ministry has been busy stitching and praying.
Last month, 2 prayer quilts were completed for our sister church, Waiola UCC, in Lahaina. On Sunday 9/10/23, Kahu Alan blessed and tied the first prayer into the quilts. Kahu Anela, of the Waiola UCC was delighted to receive the quilts and the many prayers and love tied into the quilts.
At the October P&S meeting, we wondered how the children of the Waiola Church are coping with the tragedy of the Lahaina fires. P&S decided to make 20 prayer squares and attach a small stuffed animal to each square. This is like our Pule Ho Aloha ministry offered at KUC.
On Sunday, 11/12/23, the Prayer Squares will be blessed and prayers tied into each square. All who are present can tie a prayer into a square for the children. A box will be prepared and sent to Kahu Anela so she can share them with the children of the Waiola Ohana.
Prayers and Squares continues the creation of a “Christmas Quilt”. This quilt will be blessed and tied by the first week of December. Once again, our Christmas quilt will be ‘pick-a-number’ fund raiser for Hands On Global.
Prayers & Squares thanks you for your continued support of this ministry.
If you or someone in your ohana are in need of a tangible representation of Prayer, please contact Debbie Gunning to request a quilt.
Mahalo nui loa!
