Up Coming Events
A message from the Hawaii Conference UCC Coconut Wireless
The Hawai'i Island Association, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, invites the community to participate in the installation of Gwendolyn Kehaunani "Nani" Hill as the designated term pastor and teacher of Hokuloa United Church of Christ in Puako on Sunday, May 28, in person and via Zoom. Please e-mail the church at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a Zoom link.
Dennis Prager's book The Ten Commandments: Still the Best Moral Code is next on the church book group reading list. Get a copy of the book and join in the discussion starting on Wednesday, May 17th at 10 AM (HST) on Zoom. The intent is to discuss two commandments each Wednesday for the next five weeks. Book group meetings usually last about one hour. Contact Kahu Nani or John Shafer for more information.
If you are a person of faith, this book will strengthen it; if you are agnostic it will force you to rethink your doubts; if you're atheist, it will test your convictions. For people who have thought little about the Ten Commandments, as well as for those who have a sophisticated understanding of them, it will be a revelation.
The 10 Commandments Book Group - Wednesdays at 10 AM (HST) through June 14th on Zoom
Virtual Picnic - Tuesday, June 6th at 2 PM (HST) on Zoom. More details will be forthcoming
VBS Volunteers are Super Heroes
Hokuloa UCC has selected Hero Hotline as the curriculum for this summer's Vacation Bible School (VBS) which will be July 11th to 13th. Volunteer leaders and assistants are needed for music, science, crafts, recreation, and snacks. Contact Kahu Nani or Meerkat-in-Chief, Anne Marie Murphy for more information or to volunteer.
There are many opportunities to support Hokuloa's worship service each Sunday - lay liturgist, set-up/take-down, ushers, counters, fellowship food, flowers & altar preparation, AV technician, etc.
Do you enjoy chatting? Then consider being the Sunday Zoom Host - greet those who worship via Zoom and facilitate the post-worship talk story session among Zoom participants. The Zoom host will sign in to the worship meeting on Zoom about 10 minutes before the service begins. The AV Tech will make the Zoom host a co-host so that they can admit worshippers from the virtual waiting room. The host can greet Zoom participants verbally or via chat. The host will monitor the chat box during worship. Following worship the host will get the online talk story session rolling. The Zoom Worship Host is an ideal volunteer opportunity for those who regularly worship via Zoom.
If you are willing to serve as Zoom host (or in any other volunteer capacity) on selected Sundays, please email Anne Marie Murphy to be added to the monthly volunteer invitation. The invitation is an email with a link to sign up on the virtual clipboard. When you volunteer you will receive an email reminder about your role a few days in advance.
