Interim Minister, Reverend Larry Walter
Bidden or unbidden, God is present Have No Doubt!
So much has happened, in so many ways, during these recent years we have become more and more skeptical about we are told, even from once trusted sources. Can we believe that God is present?
Rev. Larry Walter
200th 'AHA PAE'AINA CONFERENCE
Under the theme, "From Generation to Generation: Mai kēia
hanauna a ia hanauna aku," the 200th 'Aha Pae'āina was
held on Zoom for the third year in a row, from June 12 - 18, 2022. Worship, devotionals, and workshops throughout the week can be viewed on the Hawaii Conference UCC website which features a YouTube playlist of recordings.
Of special interest is the Opening Worship which features a brief video introduction to all of the churches that comprise the Hawai'i Conference. A pictorial history of Hilo Coast UCC appears halfway through the hour-long video. You can fast forward to 29:05 to watch it.
WISH LIST UPDATE
The most of you know, we had the Chapel and the Fellowship Hall fumigated due to active termite infestations. The net cost to the church was $2,600 after a generous anonymous donation from a non-member. We are accepting donations to help cover the remaining balance of $2,100 that the church has paid. Please talk to Calvin Motoda for additional details.
Our next work day is July 5, 2022. Bring your own snacks and drink. Take breaks on your own and we will leave as soon as everything is done and equipment cleaned and put away.
