SPRING `AHA MOKUPUNI  Hanapepe United Church of Christ, April 28-29, 2017
Everyone is welcome to join us for our spring gathering of all of the United Church of Christ congregations on Kaua`i! This year’s theme is “Justice Depends on Just-Us.” `Aha Mele is our annual musical celebration and will be on Friday evening, beginning with dinner at 5:30, followed by music from all of our UCC Churches on Kauai. KUC’s chancel choir will be singing a song written by our very own Kathleen Dahill! Those wishing to carpool should meet in the church parking lot and be prepared to leave at 5:00 sharp. Saturday morning will begin at 9:30 a.m. and include workshops on “justice,” including teen suicide, incarcerated women, Marshallese Health, and “Open and Affirming Churches,” which is a designation in the United Church of Christ for congregations who officially welcome everyone, including LGBTQ persons.
MOTHER’S DAY LUNCH  Join us for a special lunch on May 14, immediately after church services.  The men (with a little help from the ladies) will be preparing a delicious meal to honor the moms, grandmas, aunties.

FAREWELL LUNCH  Sadly, Mike and Fran Johnshoy and JoAnne Machin are moving to the mainland. We will be serving a special lunch in their honor on Sunday, May 21, immediately following church services.  These three church members have been the epitome of volunteerism, and Koloa Union Church and members will certainly miss their presence.

PRAYERS & SQUARES Contact Angela Dressel if you would like to get involved in praying for and helping to make quilt squares for those in crisis.
