Pastoral Update from Pastor Scott Landis
September 19, 2020

Aloha Keawala’i ‘Ohana, 

We continue in our prayers for the mainland as they experience another trying week of Covid, wildfires, and hurricanes. While we are not immune from these and other natural disasters, we do seem to be uniquely protected in many ways. Let us always be mindful of the graces we receive and never take our beautiful island home and our `ohana for granted. It is all, indeed, a gift.

Our focus for Sunday worship has been on the stories of the Old Testament. They are amazingly relevant to our situation today. This week we will travel with the Israelites as they grow weary of their pilgrimage in the wilderness. Transitions from what we knew to what we don’t know raise a lot of anxiety often leaving us longing for “the good old days.” But were they so good, and how will we know what God is calling us to do if we resist and dig in our heels? In other words, heeding God’s direction in our lives is rarely easy, but it is precisely what brings us life. The book of Exodus is the story of all the ups and downs of such obedience.

I invite you to join us for worship as we ponder our own understanding of faith. We will be live on Facebook Live, Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Just go to our church website or Facebook Group Page and join us by clicking on https://www.facebook.com/groups/keawalai.

I will open the live stream 10 minutes before the hour to allow adequate time for you to login. If you cannot join us at 10, remember the video of our worship service remains on our Facebook page for you to access anytime. An audio-feed is also available on our webpage.

To assist your participation, please print out this week’s order of worship and create a sacred space in your home, your own kuahu, to enhance the virtual experience. I invite you to bring an offering (lūlū) for a time of dedication and blessing. Please note: Online giving is available to you. All you need to do is go to our church website www.keawalai.org and click on the donate now button. You can do this anytime. It takes only a few minutes to set up your profile for a one-time or recurring gift. Mahalo for your generosity and support.

Parents: Please note, I’ve attached the Sunday School lesson for this week. Feel free to use whatever makes sense for your child as the story relates to the scriptures for this Sunday. Make sure the kids are nearby for “Keiki Time.”

Please send me any prayer requests you have for our pule in this Sunday’s worship. Requests can be sent to slandis1955@gmail.com or by texting me 619-884-5830.

This week, following worship, we will host an KCC Zoom Aloha Hour. Gather with us to talk story with folks in our ‘ohana. Just click on

We also continue to meet weekly in our KCC Zoom Room on Wednesday’s at 11. Consider joining us (again or for the first time) this week. We will send out another email early next week with the link and instructions. You can see others in our ‘ohana from your living room or lānai.

We have completed the next edition of Ka Hā Ke Akua which will go in the mail next week. Look for our newsletter in your mailbox for valuable information on our church. If you prefer receiving it by email, please let us know. You’ll get it faster and it saves the church money in postage.

Finally, don’t forget to participate in the Give Aloha program. When you shop at Foodland, you can make a donation of up to $249 that will be matched in part and contributed to our church. Simply show your Maika`i Card and use our church number (78299). Your donation is tax deductible.

May God surround you with light and love as you prepare for our time of worship together and as you “live aloha” wherever you are.

Me ke aloha o ke Akua,

Scott Landis
Interim Pastor
