SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

The editor-in-chief of your Epistle will be taking a few weeks off for surgery on Oahu. In the mean time, we will be publishing a very abbreviated issue each week. These issues will detail the weekly scripture readings, service schedules, duty rosters, and upcoming and recurring events. Once recovered, the editor-in-chief will resume his duties.

Mahalo for your support.

All Saints' Launches New Website!
Check Out the Homepage
We are pleased to announce the release of All Saints' new and improved website.
Thanks to the work of Cami Baldovino and a host of volunteers, the All Saints' website has been upgraded significantly. Many improvements are obvious on the homepage (www.allsaintskauai.org). Please visit the site by clicking on the image above to enjoy the new look and feel.

Thanks to Cami for managing the web content and Ron Morinishi for the design and implementation of All Saints' WiFi/LAN network.
All Saints' Defining the New Normal
Adapting Worship to Ensure Health and Safety
It has been so nice to be back within our church `Ohana. Face masks don’t hide the smiling eyes and air hugs we’ve been able to share. Kahu Kawika’s choice to wear a face shield has let us see his smiling compassionate face as he shares the word of God and his own wisdom. This has all been wonderful way to come together while complying with restrictions necessary to keep our community safe and healthy.

On Sunday, July 5th, we regained an invaluable part of our worship: COMMUNION!

Supplies have been received which will enable us to have communion within the safety restrictions imposed in response to COVID-19. At the beginning of each service Kahu will give us detailed instructions on how to receive communion in a safety conscious fashion.

Thanks be to God that we are able to once again celebrate this fundamental part of our Sunday worship.
E-Programs Available for Download
Since we returned to on-site church services in lieu of paper service programs we have been able to follow the service via slides on a big screen monitor. When the congregation is standing, the monitor is not visible to congregants sitting in the back pews. Cami Baldovino is making the programs available to all on the All Saints’ website on the home page. Finding the program is simple and you can download it to your smart device - phone, tablet, or even your computer.

Here’s how:

- Go to the allsaintskauai.org website
- Scroll down to and click on the “Download E-Programs” button

The E-Program will download onto your device. You can download the program at home or when you get to church. Our new improved WiFi network makes the download quick while in the sanctuary (Network name: Sanctuary Guest. Password: thepeace). Kahu will give a reminder of how to access the E-Program at the beginning of the service.
If You Can't Join Us in Person
Live Stream and Recordings Available
Join us by going to the live stream link on the All Saints’ website (allsaintskauai.org) at 9:15AM HST to enjoy Hank Curtis' prelude before the service begins.

A recording of the service will also be available on the All Saints’ website early in the week. 
For the aged and infirm, for the widowed and orphans, and for the sick and the suffering, especially Keith, David, Kaaren, Kelly, Bill, Bob, Nora, The Sloggett Family, Annie, Mike, and those we name silently or aloud, let us pray to the Lord. ​Lord, have mercy. 

For all who have died, especially Bruce, Dick, and those affected by the COVID-19 virus and those we name silently or aloud, in the hope of the resurrection, and for all the departed, let us pray to the Lord. Lord, have mercy. Amen.
The Apostles' Creed:
What, Where, Why?
We say it every Sunday at church, but where did the Apostles' Creed come from? Why do we recite it in our worship services? What does each part mean for us today? Join Kahu Kawika as we take a closer look at the Apostles' Creed. For background, the Secretarios suggested we get the book by Adam Hamilton, Creed: Why Christians Believe the Apostles' Creed (you can order a print copy from Amazon which will arrive on time, or download a Kindle version immediately). We will explore this via Zoom (online or via phone call-in) over three Tuesday evenings, 6:30-8:00PM in August, as follows according to the three-part breakdown of the Creed:

August 4: God the Father
August 11: God the Son
August 18: God the Holy Spirit
Hale Ho`omalu Donations Accepts Donations
All Saints' Restarts Donation Collection
All Saints’ has had a long relationship with Hale Ho`omalu, a Child and Family Service program that provides families with the tools and resources they need to create meaningful and lasting change in their lives. Over the years, our `Ohana has collected donations specific to monthly-need requests provided by Hale Ho`omalu.

COVID-19 changed our ability to collect donations since on-site church services were canceled. Now that we are open for on-site worship, our Hale Ho`omalu donations will be collected again for delivery to this worthy program. We are grateful to our wonderful Monday Crew that takes the donations to Hale Ho`omalu each week.

For the month of July Hale Ho`omalu is requesting donations of school supplies. There is an on-going need for travel sized toiletries and canned goods so these items will be accepted every week. As always, monetary donations are gratefully accepted.
