SUMMER BOOK GROUP Kahu Akana leads our summer book group at the parsonage, 3281 Waikomo Road in Koloa, on Wednesday evenings. The group gathers at the parsonage at 6 p.m. for dinner and then discusses the book Convictions: How I Learned What Matters Most, by Marcus Borg. In this book, Borg reflects on his life and how he developed his most bedrock convictions–and why they matter. Please pick up your book on Wednesday for $10, and sign up on the bulletin board so that Kahu knows how much food to prepare. Kahu suggests that you read chapters 8 & 9 for July 12.

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


Monday, July 24: “Plantation-style Living: An Afternoon of Art, Stories and Refreshments” at the Smith Memorial Parsonage, 3281 Waikomo Road, from 4 to 6 p.m.

Saturday, July 29: KPD Parade, “Many Cultures, One Community” at 10 a.m. We will be asking volunteers to decorate our float and also wear and carry items representing your ethnic culture or one that is part of our church and/or community.
