UPCOMING EVENTS

Cultural Thursdays at 5:30pm

Boyd D. Bond is a sixth generation kamaʻāina with family roots on all the larger Hawaiian islands. Both of his parents are from kamaʻāina families, and Boyd was raised on family stories and famous stories of Hawaiian history, which are very

often the same tales. As a naturalist, historian, and noted storyteller, Boyd's programs will lift characters off of dusty history pages and bring them to life for you! These events are co-sponsored by the Puako Historical Society. Their book, Puako, An Affectionate History, is available for purchase at these events. 

 

Thursday, Dec. 1 @ 5:30pm: Kapu, Then and Now   
What is often described as the overthrow of the Kapu system is really a misnomer, for Kapu was not a system and it was never overthrown.

 

ADVENT PREPARATION

November 27th is the first Sunday in Advent. Volunteers will decorate the sanctuary for the season at 11 AM on Saturday, November 26th. It should only take an hour or so. Please email the church office if you can help.

RED KETTLE BELL RINGERS
Hokuloa UCC will be providing volunteer bellringers at the KTA supermarket in Waikoloa on Thursdays in December. This will be the fourth year that we have partnered with the Salvation Army to gather donations to meet the needs of our neighbors in North Hawaii. Two volunteers are needed for each 2-hour shift. Contact the church office 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.

A Few Decent Docents

The church is open on Thursdays from 10am to 2pm for visitors and we're seeking more Thursday Greeters.

Would you like to be on the church grounds to greet and talk story with drop in visitors? Are you friendly? Then you are qualified to join Yvonne, David, Melissa and Cindi to greet visitors on Thursdays. A Set Up/Take Down List and a five-page History of Hokuloa are provided to the Docents.    

For an in-person orientation - please drop by on any Thursday between 10am and 2pm for a 30 minute orientation. If you are off-island and would like to be a future greeter - please email Yvonne.

John 11:25-26

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?"
