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

by: Mark Zier

07/22/2020

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

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 for a number of re

Hey It's May!

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 ZOOM at 9:30am on Sundays. Email me if you

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 that the love of G
