ICONS: Windows to Heaven or Idolatry?”
In this class we will explore the history and purpose of icons, how the church has used them in public worship, how to use them in private devotions and how they have been surrounded by mystery and at time superstition. We will take about half of the class to look at different icons specifically and talk about their meaning and theology specifically in Anglican/Episcopal churches.
Reminders and Announcements:
Itʻs a new month, so the Prayer list will be refreshed . Please submit your prayer requests at
Whoʻs Ready for Back to School?

The Back-to-School season is coming up fast and you’re invited to participate in our School Supplies Drive! It will benefit kids that go to the Boys and Girls Club of the Big Island after-school study programs and our next door neighbor, Joyland Preschool. The collection drive begins Sunday, August 4 and ends on Sunday, August 25, 2019.  

How can you help? We are collecting school supplies for needy students by giving our neighborhood kids the tools they need to succeed. After you have selected items from our posted List of Supplies, go to Walmart, Target, Amazon Smile, CVS Longs, Office Max or any retail store to make your purchases. On Sunday, simply drop off your donations in the front row of our church pews. 

Let’s help our students succeed by providing them with proper tools for their classrooms. Please drop off your donations beginning Sunday, August 4. Your contributions are much appreciated and THANK YOU for your assistance. 
Supplies needed: We are in need of regular flavored Spam for our Salvation Army feedings. Drop off at the Parish Office. We are also in need of paper towel.
Parish Clean-Up is occurring on August 3rd from 9am - 1pm. Volunteers are Welcome!!
How can our Holy Apostles Community take steps to be more sustainable and kind to our environment?

July Green Tip Rapid 'Ōhi'a Death or "ROD" is a deadly fungal disease /affecting our 'ōhi'a lehua. Over 2 million trees have already been affected on the Big Island and Kauai. Disappearance of these trees will greatly alter the natural forest experience in Hawaii since they make up 80% of our native forests. Birds, insects and plants will be impacted and the 'ōhi'a forest cannot be recreated. The fungus causes the crown of trees to quickly turn yellow then brown. Once brown it is already dying.
How can you help? When going to forested areas where the 'ōhi'a tree grows, always make sure your shoes are clean of debris and seeds. State law prohibits the interstate movement of 'ōhi'a plant parts and soil. Please kokua and leave all 'ōhi'a  plants where they grow. Help save our 'ōhi'a forests!
Noonday Prayer is now being held every Wednesday. Join us in the sanctuary.
Sung Evening Prayer will be held the first Wednesday of each month.
Sunday school will resume on August 25th.
Join us to study the Gospel of Matthew 
Wednesdays 4pm, Church Office

Here's what people are saying:
During our bible study on July 24, we discussed Jesus' profound dislike of hypocrites as told by Matthew in the 7 woes. The importance of not losing sight of the spiritual reason for our activities came up. This can take the form of outward conformity to religious laws, community service, and your own personal life. Jesus explained that the hypocrites are hypocrites not simply for saying one thing and doing another but by forgetting the deeper reasons for their actions. One example was giving offerings to the temple to appear devout rather than the offerings being meant to help the less fortunate. On July 31 we will continue with Matthew 24:15. Hope to see you there.
