ATTENTION OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS!
It’s time again for another adventurous hike to explore the beauty of nature on our tropical island home. This trek will take us up to 3000’ to the Kona Cloud Forest Sanctuary. In the area of Kaloko Mauka on a 70-acre privately owned sanctuary, we will take a guided tour that will allow us to see and appreciate many rare
and endangered endemic and exotic trees, plants and birds which the Sanctuary is committed to protecting. Trails range from 1 to 2 miles, and one leads to the “mysterious and magical painted tree.”
If we can form a Hikers for God group of 8 or more, we will get a discounted rate of $15/each instead of the $25 admission. Following the tour, we will enjoy a picnic lunch at picnic tables on the property.
Reserve on your calendar Thursday, August 17th when we will meet in the back-parking lot at 10a.m. to carpool. Be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes, camera, water, repellent, brown bag lunch, admission $, and rain gear (they don’t call it “cloud forest” for nothing). We will return to church (about 10 minutes away) following lunch. Sign up to join us at the Ministry Table or see Kim Davison for questions.
Volunteering for Habitat for Humanity
Attention all followers of Christ! A call is going out to the land of West Hawaii, there is a great need in this land. All carpenters, electricians, plumbers, or just plain do “gooders” are needed to support the Habitat for Humanity super build, taking place this September 13 to 22 with a closing ceremony on Saturday, September 23.
Kim Davison of the Waikoloa Village Women’s build fame is reorganizing the “J.C. Builders” team with the idea of participating in the super build for two or three days. In addition, a call will go out to all Churches of all faiths in West Hawaii to supply lunch (sandwiches) for Saturday, September 16th.
Anyone interested in helping in either or both of these efforts should contact Kim Davison or Dennis Bensen. God Bless You All!
Change for Cause is a coin-a-thon fundraiser. It is about raising extra kokua funds for helping the needy within the church and the surrounding community.
A coin container to save your loose change is at the greeting table each Sunday. Bring your container to church each week, and empty into the bowl at the Name Tag Table located between the kitchen and restroom. Please speak to Darlene Wetzel or Judy Ross for more information.
