New Courses on Learning Opportunities Page

Creating Sacred Space is an on-line workshop on using and enhancing the worship space in creative ways.  The workshop will be streamed live on October 27 at 5 a.m. (HST) from the Amistad Chapel at the UCC offices in Cleveland.  It will also be recorded for later viewing.  This and other continuing education opportunities can be found on the Learning Opportunities page of the Hawai'i Conference website. 

Justice News Moves to Social Media

News and events related to peace and justice will no longer appear in monthly newsletters.  Instead, they will be posted immediately on Twitter (@HCUCC) and Facebook (HCUCC Hawaii) and through special email blasts (beginning in July).  Posts and links can be downloaded and copied to church bulletins and newsletters.
