Scriptural Interpretation: Our next Equipping Course is coming up in January. It is a study of the principles for a sound interpretation of the Bible. We’ll be looking at how to accurately study the Bible, including parables, typology, prophecy and more. Scriptural Interpretation will be lead by Pastor Bruce on Tuesdays at 4:30 PM, January 6th through February 4. E-mail Pastor Bruce if you’re interested in taking the class.
Abundant Giving: Did you know that you can give to our Abundant Giving fund anytime you like? Besides our annual Abundant Giving emphasis in November, we also welcome it at any time of the year, as God blesses you. Abundant Giving is an offering over and above one's normal tithe, that goes directly toward paying off the principal on our newly consolidated building loan. You can either connect to “Cheerful Give” or just write "Abundant Giving" on the memo line of your check any Sunday.
“Spruce With Bruce”: We hope you can take a few minutes or a couple of hours to stop by this Saturday and help with our workday. Our church could use some cleaning and landscaping. If you have pruners and gloves please bring them. The time is from 8:00 to 11:59 AM.
Dress A Girl: Please join us for an afternoon of creating dresses and shorts for kids all over the world. We gather on January 17th, 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM at Mokuaikaua Church on Ali’i Drive. Not a seamstress? That’s okay - bring your scissors and/or iron and ironing board and you can join the fun. Seamstresses need to bring your sewing machine, sewing supplies, scissors, and some 3/8" elastic. Cotton fabric donations are welcome. Questions? Email Julie Lucas.
