The Rainbow Connection

Pastoral Search Committee

Hokuloa UCC will be seeking our next pastor to continue our joint ministry when Kahu Nani ends her time with us in May 2024. The search process and desired pastoral characteristics were discussed at the Congregational Meeting in June. The Hokuloa Council established the search committee and set parameters for the search at its July meeting.

Pastoral Search Committee members are Karen Anderson, Helen Boyer, Donald Clark, Shannon Clarkson, Anne Dressel, Jack Olson, Christie Shafer, and George Winchell. The committee will meet weekly via Zoom in August and September to prepare a church profile, further define desired qualities in our next pastor, and post the position on the UCC Ministry Opportunities list. The committee will work with Rev. Jonathan Roach, the Hawaii Conference UCC search and call coordinator.

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.
