FOR THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF ALL WE REQUEST THAT YOU WEAR A
FACEMASK WHILE INSIDE OUR HALE PULE.
Aloha Keawala’i ‘ohana,
Pastor Roxanne WhiteLight here again. I look forward to spending another Sunday morning with you in worship. As we learned last week, Paul is having quite a time with the several different groups that have come together to form the community at Galatia. We will continue to look at the extremely simple quotes from Paul to the Galatians that are some of the most difficult in our Christian teaching to life. We will look at the golden rule and also the platinum rule.
I ask that you return to wearing masks, once again, while inside the sanctuary and especially while singing. The recent surge in the pandemic warrants a return to safer practices in order to reduce spreading the virus. If you are not feeling well or have any Covid symptoms, please do not attend worship.
If you cannot attend in person, you can access the service virtually by going to https://keawalai.org and clicking on the Vimeo link. If Vimeo does not open for you please try to access the service through Facebook Live which you can do through the Keawala’i Group Facebook Page or through our church website.
If you are at home for worship, please print out this week’s service order (attached below) and create a sacred space in your home, your own kuahu, to enhance your worship experience. I also invite you to bring an offering (lūlū) for a time of dedication and blessing. Please remember, online giving is available to you. All you need to do is go to our church website – 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.
Please send any prayer requests you have for our pule in this Sunday’s worship. Requests can be sent during the week to email@example.com or call the church office at 808-879-5557. You can also email Pastor Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org or text him at 619-884-5830. And they can be written out on the pew cards when you arrive at worship. I hold these prayer requests in my personal prayer and will offer them during the service as well.
I look forward to being with you in person or in spirit this Sunday.Me ke aloha o ke Akua, Roxanne WhiteLight, Guest Pastor
