The news portion of our Banyan Tree will be taking a "winter break" for the next few weeks. Each Thursday you will receive, as usual, a link to our Sunday services. Also as usual, there will be a button to click on the website that will enable you to print out the service booklets for each Sunday.
The "parish news" portion of The Banyan Tree will return the week of January 18. If you have questions or articles to include, please reach out to our administrator, Puna Coldwell, in the office at
Rev. Libby also will be taking some vacation time, from Dec 28 - Jan 13. The Rev. Alison Dingley will preach and celebrate at our Sunday services on Jan 3 and Jan 10. If you have pastoral or other concerns, please contact one of our wardens, Austin Nakoa or Joe Kindrich. There will be clergy on call (in case of emergency) throughout Rev. Libby's time away.
May the beginning of 2021 be joyous and refreshing for all!
