Aloha!

I hope you will make the time to worship with us either in person or here online for the special services during Holy Week. Of course, Sunday April 17th is Easter and we're excited to welcome many friends for that morning at both 8:00 and 10:30. See our EVENTS page for more specifics. Holy Communion will be offered on Maundy Thursday and Easter morning and the Good Friday service is always moving.

With our county COVID numbers staying low, masks are now optional, but

Aloha Christ Lutheran Friends!

As you are probably aware, there are changes with the safety requirements by the State of Hawaii coming this weekend. Our Church Council met Tuesday (3/22) evening and agreed on an approach for moving forward here at church. It's understood that COVID will continue to be with us, but as long as our county remains in the low-risk category, there can be a relaxing of some protocols we've had in place since we resumed our in-person worship servic

Love Never Fail

As we approach the season of Lent, which starts on March 2nd with Ash Wednesday, I always like to remember that as Jesus made his journey to Jerusalem where he knew he would be crucified, his whole being was filled with love. That love is what he continues to offer to us every day. Especially during the days of Lent during in which we prepare ourselves for remembering his unlitmate sacrifice in dying on the cross, we remember that it's all because of God's love for us.

The Wonder of it All

Christmas is my very favorite holiday! Perhaps it's because I have such fond memories of the season from my childhood or maybe it's because of the music, the joy of children, the food, and the presents. Actually, when I really stop to evaluate it, I realize that it's about something much deeper. 

I love Christmas because of what it means! Oh, I'm sure we've all heard the reminder to remember the reason for the season, and that's good and true. But do we stop to think about

Ready for New Life

2021 is well underway and I pray that so far you are finding joy in your journey. I always think about this time of the year as a time of increasing brightness and hope. Maybe because of growing up in the Pacific Northwest, the daylight would begin to run just a little longer each day and I could tell the new life of spring wasn't far off. 

In the life of the church, we're soon going to enter the season of Lent, which ironically can feel a bit dark, at least at times. I kno

Merry Christmas

The night sky was filled with a great light and the shepherds were filled with fear at the sight. OK, so I'm not a poet, or at least not a good one, but Christmas sentiments often include clever phrases or poetic verses and sometimes they work well, and other times can leave us flat.

This year, at least for me, is not a year that I need to hear rhymes or cute cliches. This year has been tough on all of us and what we need is substance. We need something real that can give u

Advent Begins

Advent! Does that word have any meaning for you? Perhaps if you grew up in a church that observed this season, it does, but the word may not have much meaning otherwise. You may know that it means "coming", as in, the advent of a new leader comes with the inauguration of a president. But what does the word mean for those of us who believe in and follow Jesus?

Of course, Christmas is the celebration of Jesus' birth, His coming into the world, so Advent is a time of preparing

Worship to Resume

On July 22nd the church Council decided that we will target Sunday, August 2nd to resume in-person worship. There will be a number of precautions in place, but we want to provide this option for those who are comfortable and healthy enough to participate. We will begin with our usual schedule of 8:00 and 10:30 AM and hopefully have the attendance to keep both of those in place. We will also continue to have a recorded service uploaded on Sunday mornings as we have been doi
