Quarterly Meeting: We will be having an important vote, regarding consolidating our building loan, at our next business meeting on April 27. All voting members are encouraged to attend. If you have any agenda items, please present them to Bob Hudson before then.

Sonrise Service: You’ll be glad you got up early for this special time. Our Kona Minister's Fellowship will be hosting a 6:00 AM service on Resurrection Sunday. Worship with over a thousand of your brothers and sisters from many different churches. This little piece of heaven takes place at the Old Airport ball field.

Time Change: This year our Easter service (April 20), will be from 9:00-10:00 AM. Please pass the word that we will be presenting an Easter play around the empty tomb. NOTE: the Community Sonrise Service is at 6:00 AM at Old A’s.

The Way of the Cross: In preparing our hearts to celebrate the miracle of the Resurrection, would you like to walk in the footsteps of Jesus during the Passion Week? We will be creating a self-guided tour for both our Grace family, and as an outreach to the Kona community. It will be available for seven days, from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, sunrise to sunset. This meditative prayer walk will be over different portions of our ministry site, with eight Biblical stops along the way, culminating at the empty tomb.

Fundraiser: Our Youth Challenge Garage & Bake Sale will be held on Saturday, April 19. Start your Spring cleaning and help out our youth. All clean & working donations accepted. Don't have anything to donate? How about making some baked goods for the sale? Sign up to donate baked goods at the Connection Tent. Call Joe for more details at 430-8886.
