Following the review of CDC guidelines, State and County regulations, and the advice of local physicians, the Church Council has decided to reopen our church sanctuary for Sunday worship once again.

We will begin welcoming members and guests this Sunday, May 2, with precautions undertaken for the health and safety of all participants. Precautions include wearing masks at all times, signing in, being seated by our Deacons, and refraining from singing.

We appreciate your continued support!

Mahalo for being part of our 'ohana!

Pastoral Update from Pastor Scott Landis
May 7, 2021

Aloha Keawala’i ‘ohana

It is a bit strange that in the season of Eastertide we read of Jesus’ farewell to his disciples. Nevertheless, the teaching he offers in his “farewell discourse” is timeless. Last week we focused on the metaphor of being branches held together by the vine. This week Jesus expands upon that idea by reminding us when we abide in the vine we are living in God’s love.

Our theme this week is love. God reminds us of how we can neither earn nor escape God’s love for us. Our only task is to accept and to “love one another.” Easy in theory, but sometimes a challenge to embody.

We hope you join us for worship either in person (restrictions apply) or by going to our church website www.keawalai.org and clicking on the blue Vimeo button to join the livestream at 10 a.m. HST.

If you are joining us by livestream (or viewing later), please print out this week’s order of worship and create a sacred space in your home, your own kuahu. 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. You can also still send a check to the church. Mahalo for your generosity and support.

Please send me any prayer requests you have for our pule in this Sunday’s worship. Requests can be sent to keawalaichurch@gmail.com or call the church office at 808-879-5557.

You can also email me at slandis1955@gmail.com. I hold these prayer requests in my personal prayer and will offer them during the service as well.

I also hope you will join us for Aloha Hour this week on Zoom following worship. In order to accommodate in-person worship, Aloha Hour will not begin until approximately 11:15. The link for Aloha Hour is:


We 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. Wednesday Zoom Room is a great time to prepare for worship the following Sunday as we spend some time thinking about the theme for the week.

We have reached a very exciting moment in our church’s life. To gather together again feels so good. To have your energy in our sanctuary makes a huge difference to those of us who for months have been looking at a camera and empty pews instead of smiling faces. But we must do this with caution and respect for the safety of all. I, again, direct your attention to the expectations and requirements for worship that are being implemented to ensure a meaningful worship experience and everyone’s well-being. I look forward to greeting you on Sunday either in person or on Vimeo. Either way, I know I will sense your spirit when we gather.

Me ke aloha o ke Akua,

Scott Landis, Interim Pastor
