ANNUAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING

The Annual Congregational Meeting is scheduled for February 25th. Please take a copy of the annual report which is out on the lanai. This should give you a chance to look through it before the meeting. One packet per household please. Mahalo.

END OF THE YEAR STATEMENTS

The End of the Year Financial statements are here and ready for pickup. They will be on the lanai either before or after church. If you could please pick them up that would save us on postage. Mahalo.

HALE KAU KAU FUNDRAISER MARCH 4

The outreach program of St. Theresa Church in Kihei provides nearly 5000 meals a month to the hungry and homebound in our community. At KLC we support their effort to raise the $400,000 it takes to operate the program. The Readers and the Embrees each have purchased a table for 10. Pastor Joel will be giving the invocation that evening. Consider joining us to support this worthy cause. Tickets are $150. The event is at the Marriott Wailea Resort and includes dinner, great music, the largest silent auction on Maui and an auction of fabulous trips and art items. You can call Dave Reader for tickets at 874-1481 or go directly to the St.Theresa office at the corner of S.Kihei Rd. and Lipoa St. The HKK phone number is 875-8754.

KLC MOVIE/THEATER CLUB

Berlin, in the midst of the 1930’s depression is transitioning from a center of underground, avant-garde culture to the beginnings of Hitler’s regime and the rise of the NAZI Party. Into this world enters Clifford Bradshaw, a struggling American writer looking for inspiration for his next novel. On his first night in Berlin, Cliff wanders into the Kit Kat Klub, a seedy nightclub. Here, Cliff meets Sally Bowles, a talented cabaret performer and an utterly lost soul. Sally and Cliff begin a relationship which blossoms unexpectedly into a dream-like romance. As time passes, however, the situation in Berlin changes from exciting and vital to ominous and violent. The KLC Movie/Theatre Club will be selling tickets to “Cabaret” ONLY today on the lanai and next Sunday, February 11 at the discounted price of $18. So get your tickets now while you can. We will be attending “Cabaret” at the IAO theatre in Wailuku on Sunday, March 4th for the 3PM matinee.

MEMORIAL GIFTS TASK FORCE

The Memorial Gifts Task Force wants to recognize memorial donations given to the glory of God in memory of a loved one. We are currently creating a list of needs of the church that would be appropriate use of memorial donations. Please contact Marilyn Fornwall with any ideas you would like to add to the list.

NEWSLETTER DEADLINE

Reminder the newsletter deadline is Thursday, January 25th. Please e-mail Cate with any submissions by that date otherwise you will have to wait until next month. Mahalo.

FEELING ARTISTIC?

The Communications Team could use help designing and making bulletin boards. Maybe you are just the person we need. We’d like to change the bulletin boards for every season, and maybe sometimes between seasons, and could use some more hands and ideas. Please contact Marilyn Hopkins, Marilyn Fornwall, Susan Embree or Sandi Martinsen.

BOOK DISCUSSION

Pastor Barbara Edema will soon be returning for her annual Maui visit. She will be preaching at both services on March 18th. Then we will discuss her third book, For Richer, For Poorer, at my house, 101 N. Kihei Rd., from 2 – 4. Light pupus will be served. I have ordered 10 copies of her book which I will bring to church, so if you want one, please see me. They are $14. You can also buy it online for your e-reader for $5. I would like to start getting a head count, so please let me know if you are interested. Joy Nelson
