Sunday worship is a great experience


Weekly Announcements Sunday, April 30, 2017


For anyone who is unfamiliar with the purpose of the noisy offering, this is a way for KLC to help out various projects and causes within or beyond our community. Each month of a year we have 5 Sundays, we make some “noise” by putting our coins and bills into buckets. The council decided to dedicate April’s noisy offering to COCINA (Coalition of Children in Need Association). This ministry supports the needs of the children and families living in Haiti. This ministry was brought to KLC’s attention by Danielle Siebert who spent time working with Cocina in Haiti and visited KLC a few years ago. Please save you coins and “quiet money” for your Noisy Offering on Sunday, April 30.  


There is a Congregational Meeting THIS WEEK after Service. You will be voting on New Council Members and discussing the Audit. It should be a short meeting and choir will be after so that you can run through some things for Pastor Barber’s last Sunday.

We will be honoring our high school and college graduates the weekends of May 7th and May 14th; Those graduating from High School are; Mikhaela Galindo, Quinn Hottendorf, Alexandra Kennedy, Anthony Scibelli, Emma Stoltzfus, and Sierra Schonberg. We have one college graduate this year, Roxi Nunan.

Roxi Nelson will be graduating from College in just a short time. She is coming home to walk and receive her diploma. There will be an open house at the Nelson Residence (566 Ho’omaluhia Place, Kihei, HI 96753) on Sunday, May 7th from 11-4. Please call Vicki Nelson (879-6908) if you have any questions.

Three KLC members will feature in the Maui Choral Arts Society concert: Sing To Me, a Salute to Women Composers. Concerts will be THIS Saturday, April 29th at 7:30PM and THIS Sunday, April 30th at 3:00 PM. It’s a very diverse program, from a classical Clara Schumann piece all the way to Taylor Swift and Madonna. Come and enjoy a wonderful night of Choral music at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center, McCoy Studio.


We are chugging along! To date, we have raised $48,597 so are about $12,400 from our target. It’s not too late to donate because the work will be ongoing for a couple of months. Mahalo nui!  


Because of chronic back pain, KLC Member Janet Judson has not been able to attend worship. She misses her KLC Ohana and would appreciate a ride to church on Sunday’s. She lives at Kalama Heights. Please call the church office if you would be interested in helping out with the get Janet to church mission.


Aloha from the KLC Prayer Shawl Ministry.  We knit together every Thursday morning from nine to eleven.  We would love to have you join us and we can supply you with yarn, needles and a lot of fun.  Shawls in the closet are available and have been blessed.  Just sign out the shawl and take a card to include with your choice.  We are a restricted fund ministry so donations to the ministry are appreciated but the shawls are free to anyone who would like or needs one.  Mahalo and Aloha.


The 65 + group (and any who wish to come!) will meet at the south end of Kamaole Beach Park 3 (hopefully the grassy area) on Sunday, May 7th at 5:00 for a sunset picnic. Please bring: your own food (no grills provided), drink, chair and maybe a flashlight. Sunset will be 6:47pm. Plans will be to meet the first Sunday of each month!

The Maui Charity Walk will be on Sat. May 13th.  As in years past Margie Terluin will be walking on behalf of Bank Of Hawaii. The congregation of Kihei Lutheran Church has  always been very strong, generous supporters. If you would like to make a charitable donation to support this worthwhile cause please see Margie. Last year Maui County,  ( which includes Molokai and Lanai) raised over 1 million dollars. All monies  stay on Maui and support over 40+  non profit organizations in need of additional funding. They will all receive a portion of  these donations. Mahalo  for your support.


The Council has asked the Administration Committee (Admin) to review storage usage and provide recommendations on how to more effectively utilize the limited space that we have.  Admin is asking all ministries to take a look at the storage/closet areas that they currently use and clean up and remove items that are no longer needed/used.  Admin recommends that if your ministry hasn’t used it in two years; then trash it!  Please coordinate with your clean-up plans (date/time) with Cate to avoid conflict with rubbish pick up.  We are asking that ministries/groups complete this cleanup by May 8.  If you have questions, please contact any Admin Committee member: Phil Proctor, Marilyn Hopkins, Don Lee, Vicki Lee, or Carolyn Rixey-Wagner.


VBS is coming June 19-23!  We are in need of volunteers to serve as Crew Leader stations (crafts, snacks, Bible study, games, etc).  Our next VBS workday will be Saturday May 6th from 9:30am-1pm.   We are looking to start decorations, paint, etc.  All are welcome (even if you can only come for a few minutes).  We also need specific supplies and donations.  Please also check the sign up sheet on the lanai after and the biweekly VBS bulletin insert.  Contact Phil (283-9224) & Stacie (283-7312) Proctor for more information.
