Beginning with tomorrow night’s mid-week Lenten service we will be going 100% online for all of our worship services and Bible studies. That means no one will be physically attending services or Bible classes at the church until at least April 30. We want to do our part in flattening the curve of corona virus infections in our state and the best way we can do that is by offering all our activities digitally.

Even if you are not a tech type of person, watching a mid-week or Sunday service is as easy as clicking on www.lutheranhawaii.org. Scroll down just a little and you’ll come across the words, “Can’t make it into church this week? Stay connected by watching the live stream below:” You’ll see a large photograph with a play button in the middle. Press play and get ready to worship. The worship services are pre-recorded so you can watch them at any time.

We’re going to be offering live Bible classes through Google Hangouts. If you would like to join one, please contact Pastor Gumm at cfgumm@gmail.com for the link. We can also help you work through any questions you might have.

To access worship materials, please go to www.lutheranhawaii.org and then scroll down until you find the words on the left side CHURCH DOCUMENTS. Click on the “Download or View a Previous Church Bulletin” link. To open Bible Class materials, click on the link “Download or View a Previous Bible Study”.

Here’s our schedule for the coming week:

Wednesday, March 25
• Lenten Worship (any time after 6:00 pm): I Have the Promise of Eternal Life
Continue your Lenten preparations with a fascinating study of the two men who were crucified with Jesus and their different reactions to him.

Sunday, March 29
• Sunday worship service (any time): A continuation of our series “The I Am Sayings of Jesus”. This week we’ll study Jesus’ comforting and controversial claim, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.
• New live Bible class at 9:00 am and 11:00 am – “Walking Through the Darkest Valleys”. Overnight, the corona virus has radically changed our lives. We are in uncertain territory. In the famous Psalm 23, we are promised that God is with us as he walks us through the darkest valleys in life. Together we’ll learn from Bible heroes how the Lord accomplished that in the past and still does the same today. Please contact Pastor Gumm if you are interested.
