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 mor...

Aloha Christ Lutheran Sisters and Brothers!

The Board of Elders and I have been working on a worship plan as we look ahead to the possibility that the civil authorities may allow for more options for churches to gather in person in the near future. I have also been in consultation with our Church Council in this process.

While some of our neighbor islands have already lifted restrictions and that may be on the horizon on our island, we have concluded that f...

Wow! A third of this year has already passed and I know for some, it can't pass quickly enough given everything we've had to contend with related to COVID 19. Our governor recently extended the stay at home order through the end of May so we will continue to offer our worship services online. Those are located on the MESSAGES tab of this site. Since this has been extended, we're also starting an online Bible Study this month using...

He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!

What a joyful greeting that we share with each other normally face to face at this time of the year, but whether in person or not, we have reason to rejoice in this great news! Jesus is alive and offers each of us a life that is greater than anything we face in this world.

I hope that you will take time to reflect on God's amazing love for you that is demonstrated most clearly in Jesus' life, death and resurrection. I pray t...

We're certainly in a strange time. That's an understatement I realize, but in some ways I have to keep reminding myself of that fact. Things just aren't normal and what was familiar and taken for granted previously, just aren't there right now. In some cases, we're not sure if they will return, but in every case we have no idea when any might.

During these uncertain times, we still have a certain HOPE in our Lord Jesus Christ. We're about to enter Holy Week, start...

These are unusual times for all of us, but we are still going to worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. While the service may be a little different given that we won't be together in person, I pray that God's Word of mercy and grace will reach you and minister to you deeply.

Grace and Peace to you in Christ Jesus!

We are in a new season as there has now been a case of the virus identified on our island of Hawaii and given the reality that the majority of our congregation is in the higher risk age group being over 60, we will take the next 15 days and suspend our worship and other gatherings. This is effective immediately and will remain in affect through April 1st when we will evaluate whether it's safe to resume our schedule.

Dear Friends,

These are unique times that create opportunities for us to live out our faith in Christ while using knowledge and wisdom that He supplies through the medical community. We are loved by our Heavenly Father and He has not ceased watching over us or walking with us. We cling to His promises and continue to trust in His protection.

As I write this blog, there are NO identified cases of this virus on our island! That's the good news...
