A Time To Blossom
Prayer for 2024
O God, just as flowers blossom in the
desert and bring life and beauty
to the surrounding landscape,
may Koloa Union Church
blossom in the years
ahead of us.
Just as rain and sun make flowers
possible, may my generosity
make possible all kinds
of growth in 2024.
May my gifts to Koloa Union Church
truly express the gratitude I have
for this congregation and all
you have done for me
and so many others.
Mahalo nui loa for your generosity to
Koloa Union Church and our ministry on Kauai’s south shore!

Prayers & Squares
Prayers and Squares Tuesday, November 1st 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.”
To request a quilt for church members or friends in crisis, call Debbie Gunning at 808-652-7899.
Prayers & Squares is expanding its ministry and could use your help! We are creating Prayer Quilts to be distributed at Wilcox Hospital. We have packets available to take home and sew squares together. If you can help or have questions, call Sheila Harman at 717-514-9020.
No experience in quilting or sewing is necessary. There are jobs for everyone to help in the making of the quilts…and everyone is invited to pray!
The Prayers & Squares Ministry is preparing material for their Christmas Fund raiser for “Hand on Global.” Contact Sheila if you have any questions.
Mahalo nui loa!

After three years, a good portion of the Bible is included and the cycle begins again.
