Pastoral Update from Pastor Scott Landis
January 16, 2021

Second Sunday after Epiphany
Kalaupapa Sunday – 128th Anniversary of the Overthrow of the Hawaiian Monarchy
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Aloha Keawala’i ‘Ohana, 

As you can see by the header of this update, we have a lot going on this Sunday. We will try and recognize each of these important foci in our state and national history through liturgy and sermon. In addition, we will hold our congregation’s Annual Meeting shortly following the service (approximately 11:15). You should have received materials (agenda & Annual Report) and the Zoom Link in a separate email.

The call of Samuel will guide our thoughts this Sunday. Both his call and response are helpful guides regarding how we live our lives today. Do we still hear God’s call in our lives? Are we willing to respond in spite of the costs involved? How is our faith affected by the corruption we see in so many of our institutions today?

This week we will continue our new virtual format. Vimeo is the platform we are using. You may access the worship service on our live feed – Sunday at 10 a.m. HST by going to our church website at: http://www.keawalai.org

Then simply click on the blue


You will be linked directly to the livestream for this week – January 17 – Second Sunday after Epiphany. IMPORTANT: In the event you lose the livestream connection please log out and try to reconnect. If that doesn’t work, please be patient. The service is being recorded and will be uploaded to our archived list of services asap for you to view later.

To assist your participation, please print out this week’s order of worship and create a sacred space in your home, your own kuahu. I invite you to bring an offering (lūlū) for a time of dedication and blessing. Please note: Online giving is available to you. All you need to do is go to our church website www.keawalai.org and click on the donate now button. You can do this anytime. It takes only a few minutes to set up your profile for a one-time or recurring gift. You can also still send a check to the church. Mahalo for your generosity and support.

Parents: I’ve attached the Sunday School lesson for this week. Feel free to use whatever makes sense for your child as the story relates to the scriptures for this Sunday.

Please send me any prayer requests you have for our pule in this Sunday’s worship. Requests can be sent to keawalaichurch@gmail.com or call the church office at 808-879-5557.

You can also email me directly at slandis1955@gmail.com.


In order to accommodate the Annual Meeting, Aloha Hour will be eliminated this Sunday only. See the link to the Annual Meeting and report above on this home page.

We continue to meet weekly in our KCC Zoom Room on Wednesday’s at 11. Consider joining us (again or for the first time) this week. We will send out another email early next week with the link and instructions. You can see others in our ‘ohana from your living room or lānai.

It has been a challenging couple of weeks here on Maui. Our Covid numbers continue to spike, therefore, we are unable to accommodate folks for public worship. We are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel as vaccines are being administered, but we still have a long way to go. May you remain faithful throughout and may God’s blessing be upon you and your loved ones in the coming days.

Me ke aloha o ke Akua,

Scott Landis
Interim Pastor
