With many celebrating Valentine's Day later in the day, it's not too late to pick up something special for that special someone!  We're sure to have the freshest and sweetest offerings in town!

2015 Relay for Life Fundraising
Once again, the Ke Akua Youth Group and ECW are teaming up to raise funds for the American Cancer Society, and participating in this year's Relay for Life at Hanapepe.  Stay tuned for our upcoming fundraisers including luminaria sales. The event will be taking place on the weekend of April 25-26, and the theme is the 80s! If you'd like to make an online donation, visit the Relay for Life website HERE and donate to the All Saints Angels team!  
Food Collections for Hale Ho'omalu
canned goods
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 Available!
All Saints' 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.

The following is an article from the TENS website, shared by the Stewardship Committee for your reading.

The Abundance that Surrounds Us is God's
By JR Lander
Recently, my other half visited a wonderful bakery near our home. While he was standing in line, the person in front of him, ordered, put $10 on the counter, and left. The cashier tried to get him back to give him his $2.50 in change. The departing customer said, "Keep it." Great story in itself... but here's what was wonderful. The cashier put $1 in the cup for staff tips... and the other $1.50 in a jar for raising money for a local charity. 

Now let's be honest, bakery cashiers, particularly in pricey areas like where we live, don't make a lot. But this one employee chose to both share the $1 with the rest of the staff, and put the other $1.50 toward charity. As little money as this person had, he believed it was more important to give to this one cause dear to their hearts.

There are so often times in our lives that we somehow receive unexpected funds. Whether it be a generous tip, or an unexpected inheritance, a bonus at work, or an extra large tax return, these are certainly welcome. But imagine if we all chose to give a portion (or all) of these unexpected funds away. Imagine how we could touch the lives of those around us, and the lives of persons in need in our communities.

Stewardship is recognizing that what we have and what we receive are not truly ours. The abundance that surrounds us is God's, and we should show our gratitude for being entrusted with it by sharing it.

Second Sunday after the Epiphany

Almighty God, whose Son our Savior Jesus Christ is the light of the world: Grant that your people, illumined by your Word and Sacraments, may shine with the radiance of Christ's glory, that he may be known, worshiped, and obeyed to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with
you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, now and for ever.

Saturday Markets Re-energized

Blessed with a sprinkling and rainbow, All Saints' first market of the year took place on Saturday, January 10. As expected, the January market was low-key, following a busy holiday season, but beginning in February, the event will be taking on a whole new feel! After an encouraging meeting towards the end of 2014, organizers have regrouped with a newfound energy and commitment. Monthly themes, paid advertising, and logistical changes are all being added to help boost this event.

As some may know, 2014 was a year of trial and error. With the Kapa'a Town Art Walk taking place on the first Saturdays of the month, it drew potential vendors to a different venue. Thanks to Galen Nakamura, who has donated his time to handle the legal aspects of the market, we obtained permitting to hold it on another day of the month. During the second half of the year, "First Saturday Markets" was changed to second Saturdays. 

We have been fortunate that a core group of vendors have hung in there and are avidly helping us to grow the market. Please help us spread the word... share the news not only to shoppers, but to vendors!  Each month, the market will feature a different theme, with theme vendors invited to participate for FREE!!!  February will be a Valentine's theme, and March and April will focus on Spring. You can direct potential vendors to our website HERE, and to the Saturday Market Facebook page HERE,  

If you'd like to help by being a volunteer Site Coordinator, or to get on the Saturday Market Vendor's e-mail list for regular updates, contact Sybil at halelani@hawaiiantel.net, and be sure to share February's flyer (shown above) to all your friends, family, businesses and on social media!!!
