THIS SUNDAY: February 25, 2024

2 Lent

Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16

God makes an everlasting covenant with Abraham and Sarah. God promises this elderly couple that they will be the ancestors of nations, though they do not yet have any child together. God will miraculously bring forth new life from Sarah’s womb. The name changes of Abraham and Sarah emphasize the firmness of God’s promise.

Romans 4:16-25

Paul presents Abraham as the example for how a person comes into a right relationship with God not through what they do, but through their trust in God. Though Abraham and Sarah were far too old for bearing children, Abraham trusted that God would fulfill God’s promise to give them many descendants.

Mark 8:31-39

While our salvation is a free love gift from God, our journey of discipleship is a costly one. Jesus is on his way to offer his life in Jerusalem, and he wants to prep his disciples to expect to pay a cost for putting God first in their lives.

Reflection for Ash Wednesday and

Burning of the Palm Crosses

It is a tradition here at All Saints that we use our old palm crosses from previous years and burn them into ashes to be used for our Ash Wednesday service. We thank you all for bringing your old Palm Crosses to church.

The Altar Guild members were asked this year to do the burning and Thank God for our wonderful John Hanaoka who shared his expertise and knowledge with us so that we may learn a new experience. It was so interesting to see the transition of the palm crosses, burst into flames (a blaze of glory from Palm Sunday) and in less than 30 seconds they turned into ashes.

As Kahu and Suzanne placed those ashes on our foreheads, we began our Lenten Season…the time to reflect on our faith and our religious discipline.

Monday Crew and Altar Guild

Welcome to our New Volunteers!

The Altar Guild and Monday Crew are so excited that we have two new volunteers that are willing to join us in serving our God. Pam Sokei has joined our Monday Crew and Mabel Antonio is now part of our Altar Guild. In this photo, they are making sure that the altar has been set up for our Ash Wednesday Eucharist.

Thank you to the hard-working volunteers from Monday Crew and Altar Guild!!

Youth Group Clean Up Day!

Sunday, February 25

The All Saints Youth Group will clean up the Youth Room and get it ready for our meetings and activities! This will happen on Sunday, February 25, at 9:30-10:15am, instead of our regular meeting. All youth, please wear comfortable clothes. Please bring gloves and masks (if you have them). The leaders will bring some gloves and masks too, and we will bring lots of cleaning supplies.

If you know of any other youth who are interested in joining this or other Youth activities, please contact Kahu or one of the Youth Team (Faith, Carolyn, Jan, Mabel, Wayne, Ron or Alanna). We meet every Sunday at 9:30am. Hope to see you there!

Youth Group Mini Golf!

Saturday, March 9

Please save the date!! At our last meeting, the Youth Group decided that Saturday, March 9 would be a good day for mini-golf, when considering their spring break schedules.

We don't have any details yet, other than we hope to go to Anaina Hou Mini Golf. Please come to our Sunday Youth Group meetings to help plan more details about this outing. Hope to see you there!
