Food collections continue for Hale Ho'omalu, a family services center located a half-block away from the church.  Donations of canned and packaged goods are welcome as well as monetary gifts. All donations can be left in the red wagon at the church entrance every Sunday. The ECW will be meeting this month to plan out their special collections for the year.
Worship Enhancements Now Available!
All Saints' now has portions of the service bulletin in large-size print to make reading along with the service easier for those who prefer it. There are also a few headsets available that will help folks hear the service more clearly, or for those in the back rows that might have a hard time understanding or hearing what is being said. Both items are available through our ushers who will be more than happy to set you up!

The nursery has also been hooked up so that the service can be heard through a speaker in that room. Parents with very young children can now sit and relax with them while they play, and are also able to hear the service.

First Sunday after the Epiphany: The Baptism of our Lord

Father in heaven, who at the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan proclaimed him your beloved Son and anointed him with the Holy Spirit: Grant that all who are baptized into his Name may keep the covenant they have made, and boldly confess him as Lord and Savior; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.

'Ohana Family Game Night Winners!

Everyone was a winner at the Stewardship Committee's quarterly event, the 'Ohana Family Game Night, held on Saturday, December 20, in the gym. Nearly 50 kids, parents, aunties, uncles and grandparents showed up for fun and games along with pizza and lots of laughs! A variety of games were laid out on tables for people to choose from, and the Wright's even brought a homemade crap table that was popular with the adults. There was also a fishing game and bean bag toss.  

"We had NO idea how many would come and we were pleasantly surprised." said Chris Wataya.   

With razor sharp focus and steady hands, Bill Akana was deemed the Jenga champ, defeating most anyone who was up to the challenge. Timing was perfect for Faith Shiramizu's visiting grandchildren who enjoyed the children's games, and several preschool families were also present.

Stewardship Chair, Bill Caldwell, said that with all the positive feedback, they plan to do it again...so stay tuned!!!

Christmas Caroling at Mahelona

What has become an annual activity, Christmas caroling at the Mahelona long-term care unit saw our largest turnout yet. Dressed in cheerful Christmas garb, keiki, teens and adults came together to share their voices with grateful residents on Sunday, December 21. Returning college students, home for the holidays, joined in, keeping the tradition alive! Afterwards, everyone was treated to refreshments provided by the staff at Mahelona.
Ke Akua Youth Group's Annual Christmas Party

After a full year of service and activity, the Ke Akua Youth Group gathered together for their annual Christmas party right after the Mahelona Christmas caroling. Former members who were home from college were welcome to join in the fun and frivolity that was filled with lots of laughter and joy! 

Pictured above: With limited materials, teams had to create Santa and Rudolph the red-nose reindeer, and Secret Santa gifts are a highlight drawing tons of laughs!  Many thanks to Fr. Ryan and Dr. Erin for opening up the Rectory for this annual gathering.

Christmas Eve services were dressed in red, white and gold, with a blanket of Poinsettias lining the aisle through the transept and up to the altar. This year, Fr. Ryan introduced a new half-hour Children's service that began at 3:30 PM, and was followed by two Festival Choral Eucharist services at 5:30 and 10:30 PM. Rev. Mary Tudela was on hand to both assist and celebrate at the services with Fr. Ryan. Between services, the Rectory was opened up for a potluck reception where all were invited to fellowship and celebrate.  Rev. Mary preached and Fr. Ryan celebrated the Christmans morning service.

Parish and Preschool Administrator Chris Wataya was thrilled to see all the families at the children's service, many who were from the preschool.  "Afterwards, all were congregating outside talking while the children played," said Chris. "All said they thoroughly enjoyed it.  What a wonderful addition to our Christmas worship!"

"The Christmas Children's service was the best ever," said Diane Sato, adding to the resounding success of this new offering. "I enjoyed it and wished that my granddaughters attended that service. It was so inspiring and I'm sure the parents were so comfortable not having to worry about their kids making noise." 

Diane also attended the 5:30 service, and said how much she loved the music and soloists.  "The choir sounds better each time I hear them," said Diane.  

That is due in large part to the leadership of our new Interim Director of Music Ministries, Hank Curtis, who is not only a gifted musician, but a great leader to the Choir who has reinvigorated and restructured their weekly rehearsals. The result of Hank and the Choir's hard work and dedication definitely shined on Christmas Eve. The evening services featured soloists Barry Toy on trumpet and the lovely vocals of Hope Atz. 

The Christmas services that I attended (5:30 Christmas Eve and Christmas morning) were very fulfilling," said David Murray.  "I loved the music for the Christmas Eve service.  Hank has been a great addition to our team."  David also spent "a very pleasant three hours" at the reception, and wrapped up the Christmas experience perfectly..."loved having Fr. Ryan and Rev. Mary for the celebration.  We are so blessed!"  AMEN!  (Photos by Marge Akana and Faith Shiramizu)
