Here are financial stewardship highlights as of November 12:
  • We have received 42 pledges. (Our goal is 80 pledges for 2016.)
  • We are happy to report that 6 of those pledges came from families new to the All Saints' 'Ohana
  • The total amount pledged (YTD) for 2016 is $108,882. (Our 2016 pledge amount goal is $250,000.)
  • We are excited to share that 19 individuals/families of the 36 returning pledges have pledged to increase their offering in 2016.
If you did not receive a pledge card, need another, or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Church office by phone (808) 822-4267 or by e-mailAlso, if you were unable to attend the All Saints' Day service, we encourage you to listen to the All Saints' Day sermon, "We are Made to Thrive", which is available on the Stewardship webpage under "Campaign Resources"  and on the Sermon Archive webpage.
God of abundance, your love flows like living water filling our hearts and flooding our souls with one desire to know you and make you known. We lift your name on high. We know we are made for so much more than ordinary lives. Empower us to more than just survive because we are made to Thrive! Amen.

Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant us so to hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that we may embrace and ever
hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have
given us in our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.
