Aloha! When King Kamehameha II ended the taboo of women and men eating separately, the first luau was created. We invite you to bring a delectable tropical treat. Early spring is the perfect time for a little dress-up and imagining blue waters and sandy beaches! Our all church
Fellowship next Sunday celebrates Hawaii and our own Lilinoe, Hawaii’s ancient Goddess of the Mists. So, bring out your favorite aloha shirt, shorts, sandals or a muumuu and bring along your favorite luau appetizer.

We tend to think of Jesus as a gentle, lamb-holding, sage figure who wanders from town to town dispensing easily digestible wisdom. And sometimes this is who he is. But today’s reading offers another side of Jesus. He’s angry with Peter because Peter’s focus is on the short term, not the longer term. He needs his disciples to know that following him will bring difficulty and challenge. But also that it is worth it. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on the topsy-turvy kingdom of God and how sometimes losing is just what we need in order to find what we never knew we were missing.

We love to use the caterpillar turning into a butterfly as a metaphor for transformation. We start as one thing and through various processes, struggles, and events over time we become something else. But the butterfly was always a part of the caterpillar just as the caterpillar is still a part of the butterfly. Today we hear the story if Jesus becoming “transfigured” before a few disciples. What does that mean? And perhaps more importantly, what does it say about our own transformations? Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on how we are all becoming someone new and how our faith can help us through the process of being transformed in Christ.

The ancient Israelites had a rough go of it for a while. Empire after empire came and conquered them. Life was hard. Surely they must have wondered why God was allowing this to happen. Enter the prophet, Isaiah. In chapter 40, Isaiah has some uplifting words for God’s people. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on how it is that we find strength in God when times are tough.

Sunday, January 28, 10:15 am

Since the very beginning, Christians have been trying to figure out how to live side by side with people of other faiths. Do we follow their customs? Encourage them to follow ours? Can we find a way to live our faith fully without diminishing the truths that others have found elsewhere? Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on the challenges and blessings of being a Christian in an interfaith world.
