There is no need to wait for December 25th to celebrate love, peace, and the God who is with us! Christ is born every day, in and through us. We'll celebrate Christmas in July on July 14 with one worship service at 10 AM both in person and online.

Join us in your favorite Christmas attire (ugly sweaters/shirts encouraged). After the service, we’ll jingle and mingle with a potluck, fellowship, and a special “Melted Snow Day” (water play) for the young and young-at-heart. There will also be a shave ice truck for cool treats (11 AM - 12 PM). Bring your ‘ohana, a dish to pass, and a towel – and don’t forget your holiday spirit!

Attend Scholarship Reception

The CUC Women’s League invites ALL to a reception honoring this year's scholarship recipients.

It will be a time for awardees to meet members of the church and for us, as a congregation, to greet and congratulate these outstanding individuals!

The Women’s League encourages everyone to stop by to say hello, shake some hands, and have some refreshments!

Readers Needed for Worship!

Worship is one of the heartbeats of our church – it is the work of the whole church community in praising God, hearing God's word to us and responding in faith. One way to help each other in our worship is by reading scripture and other parts of our service. It enhances our experience of worship when we can have different faces and voices leading worship.

If you are willing to read in a worship service, please join our pool of readers! Learn more and sign up by clicking HERE.
