A New Year’s Resolution: Where do we go in 2017?

Board Fair, Sunday, January 22, 2017

Save this date and come to worship in the Building of Faith at 10 a.m.

Why?  Because all four of our Boards will be presenting displays about our current goals and objectives;  Because we are asking you to find out what we are doing; Because we are asking you to share your ideas and dreams with us!

Since Pastor Tom Olcott’s retirement in 2013, we had two Interim Ministers who led us to think about who we are and where we came from.  We drafted a Time Line showing important events in our church’s history.  We celebrated our 125th anniversary.  In April, 2016, we called Pastor Eric S. Anderson as our pastor.  He has brought enthusiasm, inspiration and modern technology to our church.  There is a new energy among us!  My hope is that in 2017, besides ministering to our members and friends, we will find ways to bring Christ’s love and vision to our Hilo community.  

How can we do this?  What is God saying to us?  Where are we going?  How can we look outward into our community?  How can we help our homeless, our seniors, our children?  The Board Fair is our opportunity to begin to think Big, to think outside the box.  Your ideas are welcome!

As part of our New Year’s Resolution, let’s take a serious look at our relationship with God and ask for His guidance to lead us as individuals and as the Church of the Holy Cross? Please join us for worship in the Building of Faith on January 22.

Gloria Kobayashi, Moderator
