St. John’s Annual Meeting and Potluck: January 28

Please plan to join us for St. John’s annual meeting (and potluck lunch!), which will be held on Sunday, January 28, in Ho’okano Hall immediately after the Sunday Eucharist. 

After the meeting, we will be setting up the hall to welcome our next round of Family Promise visitors.


Many thanks to everyone who has signed up for refreshments for upcoming Sundays. See the schedule posted on the bulletin board in Ho‘okano Hall by the kitchen for when you can help, too.

Altar flowers
If you would like to donate flowers for the altar for Christmas or any day in thanksgiving (for birthdays, anniversaries, etc) or in memory of a loved one, please contact Lois.

Canned goods and other nonperishable foods
Please bring your donations. These are collected each Sunday and presented at the altar as part of our offering, then transferred to the needy.

Help needed!
Would you like to serve as an usher one Sunday a month? Ushers not only welcome visitors and show them to their pews; they also help set up and put away the microphones, turn on the air conditioning when needed, distribute materials for the service, and ring the bells. Join the team!

Ministries schedule
The schedule for clergy, worship leaders, eucharistic lay ministers, acolytes, and altar guild for January-June 2018 is now available. Please print and distribute to kupuna who don't access the Internet.

An illustrated list of the altar hangings used for different seasons and purposes is available here.

Worship leaders, eucharistic lay ministers, and acolytes: please arrive by 9:15 am. If you are unable to make it, please arrange for your own substitute.

Sunday's readings
Each Sunday's readings are available online at the Episcopal Lectionary website.
