HI Christmas

Christmas is Special at Koloa Union Church: We sing Christmas carols in English and Hawaiian on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and during the entire season; and all are welcome to join us. Whether you are fluent in Hawaiian or just want to listen to our choir and congregation sing their favorite Christmas carols, you are welcome to celebrate the birth of Jesus in a congregation where truly all are welcome, regardless of ethnicity, ability, socio-economic status, sexual orientation or any other area of modern life that sometimes separates people in our society. Come experience God’s presence and our island hospitality!

A Service of Candles & Carols: Our Christmas Eve service at Koloa Union Church will begin at 7:30 on December 24th. All are invited to join us for Christmas carols, Scripture readings, and the traditional lighting of the candles.

Christmas Day Communion Service: Our Christmas Day communion service at Koloa Union Church will begin at 10:30 a.m. All are invited to join us for a special day on which we celebrate the birth of our Savior. We will light the Christ candle, sing Christmas carols, hear a Christmas Day message from our Kahu, Alan Akana, and celebrate Holy Communion.

Special Offering: Each year at Christmastime, congregations of the United Church of Christ across the country take up a collection to provide pension and health premium supplementation to lower-income retired church workers, and emergency assistance to clergy and lay church employees in need, as well as “Thank You” gift checks to hundreds of faithful retired church workers. The fund is administered by the UCC Pension Boards. We will collect the Christmas Fund offering on December 24 & 25. Please give generously to help faithful church workers who are experiencing difficult times.
