SALVATION ARMY LUNCH Our church will be serving lunch at Salvation Army in Hanapepe on Wednesday, May 31. A couple more volunteers are needed. Please contact the church office if you can help serve.

TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION! Join us on Pentecost Sunday, June 4, to celebrate the second anniversary of our capital campaign “Maika`i Hana Hou” (Creating Goodness & Beauty Once Again). We will celebrate our accomplishments during our MORING WORSHIP SERVICE  at 10:30 and then move out to the lawn for an OLD-FASHIONED CHURCH PICNIC and POP-UP TALENT SHOW! Bakers are encouraged to bring a pie and people who would like to share their talent can sign up on June 4th. We will also have special guests joining us for the celebration, including our Conference Minister, the Rev. Dr. Charles Buck. Come and celebrate all we have accomplished in the last two years! You are also invited to join us in our church tradition of wearing the color RED, which is the liturgical color of Pentecost.

STRENGTHEN THE CHURCH OFFERING On June 4 we will collect the special mission offering called “Strengthen the Church.” This is a special mission offering to reimagine and build the future of the United Church of Christ. Shared at the conference and national levels, STC largely supports youth ministries and full-time leaders for new churches in parts of the country where the UCC voice has not been heard. As God calls our congregations to be the church in new ways, your generosity will plant new churches, awaken new ideas in existing churches and develop the spiritual life in our youth and young adults.

CAN YOU ASSIST A UCC MINISTER? Kahu’s friend, the Rev. Sarah Rentzel Jones will be moving from Lana`i to Kaua`i this week to begin her new position as chaplain at Wilcox Hospital on June 1, and her family (including kids) will be joining her in a couple of weeks. For the past few years, Sarah has been an Associate Conference Minister in the Hawai`i Conference and Pastor of the UCC Church on Lana`i. She is in need of furniture for the house they will be renting in Lihu`e and also a car for the first few weeks until the rest of the family arrives. If anyone has any furniture that is no longer needed or can sell it to Sarah for a reasonable price, please contact Kahu Akana. The same goes for anyone who has a car that Sarah can borrow for a few weeks at most. Mahalo!
