SHARE ALOHA in August
Child and Family Service
This is a Hawaii non-profit organization whose mission is to strengthen families and foster healthy development of children. See their website to learn more: childandfamilyservice.org.
Help us Share Aloha throughout the month by picking up 1 or 2 of the following items while you are out doing your own grocery shopping, or search your house for some unused items you are willing to donate:
- Hand sanitizers
- Clorox wipes
- Face masks
- Hand soap
- Paper towels
- Non-latex gloves
You can drop items off at the church in the tote bin labeled “Community Outreach,” which is located near the front door of the sanctuary. You can also arrange a home pick-up by contacting the church office. We will be collecting donations until August 31st.
Mahalo for your support!
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.
