Welcome & Announcement

March 27th



Aloha mai kakou!  This is the day that the Lord has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it.  We welcome all of you with us this morning, whether in person or virtual.



We continue to reflect on the Lent season, and I hope in your reflection you were able to remember the time our Lord spent in the desert before he died on the cross.  We are approaching a wonderful day of celebration.


Elder Kealoha Akau:

This morning we welcome to our pulpit, Elder Kealoha Akau, he is an elder of Imiola church in Waimea.  Today his sermon is titled “High Anxiety” and the scripture of the day is taken from the book of Philippians 4:6-7.  Please welcome he and his family, and after the service share your aloha with them.



The state ended the mask mandate and Haili Church is no longer mandating that you wear them indoors.  Your desire to wear a mask is your decision, masks are totally optional.


Prayer Request Card:

The insert in your bulletin has a list of any meetings happening this coming week and our prayer corner.  If you have a prayer request, please fill out the prayer card also inserted in your bulletin and drop it into the lulu bowl during the collection of offering OR call Daniel at the office and he will pray with you and add that person’s name to our prayer corner.



We have a wonderful list of speakers for the month of April.

Next week, April 3rd, Pastor Jack Snell will be sharing God’s message.

April 10th, Pastor Jonathan Roach, Big Island Conference Minister will be our speaker for Palm Sunday.

April 17th Pastor Eric and Beth Yodis

April 24th, we welcome back Papa Makua Kahu Wendell Davis to our hale pule.

Come join us and worship with us in person.


Easter Sunday:

We will have two services on April 17th, Easter Sunday.

First at 6 am., we will have Sunrise Service in the gym. Hope Kahu Daniel Kawaha, will be sharing God’s word.  We suggest that you park in the back parking lot for this service.  Following that service, we will be serving light refreshments.  Don’t forget to return for our regularly scheduled worship service.


Second Service at 10:00 am. Pastor Eric and Beth Yodis (Missionaries from Ukraine) will be speaking God’s truth.  We also have a special event planned for this service. Some of you may have attended last year’s Easter Service and remembered the dressing of the cross.  You were asked to bring a flower for you and each family member.  During the Easter Service, you were invited to place your flower onto the cross at the lower floor level.  We will be doing the same thing this year.  The congregation will be invited to dress the cross with the flowers they will bring to church on Easter Sunday. We encourage everyone to participate and we would appreciate it if you could bring a few flowers from your yard to decorate the cross.

Come join us in person and listen to Pastor Eric and Beth Yodis and participate in the “Dressing of the Cross” with your Haili Congregation ‘ohana!


One last item!!


Easter Lilies:

We ordered Easter Lilies to decorate the sanctuary for Easter Sunday, if you are interested in purchasing a plant, the cost is $12. We will pick up the plants and decorate the Sanctuary.  Once the Easter service is over, you may take the plant home.


Let us continue with our worship service.
