  Message from Pastor Steve



HAPPY NEW YEAR!

                     
It is exciting to begin not only a new year, but also a new decade together.  I love serving here in Wahiawa with each of you and look forward to all that God is going to do in and through us in 2020.  We enter this new year in confidence and hope because we know that God is here with us - and if God is for us, no one can stand against us! (Romans 8:31).


As we move forward together, it is my prayer that we as a church family will grow in two simple ways - love for God and love for people.  This challenge comes to us from the two great commands that Jesus reminds us of in Scripture,


Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind.


     Love your neighbor as yourself.


                                    Matthew 22:37 & 39


Every week throughout this coming year, we have opportunities to grow in these two key relationships.  We grow in love for God as we pray, worship and take in the Word of God.  We grow in our love for people as we reach out to connect and serve one another.  This begins at home with our own families, then in the church with our brothers and sisters in the Lord and finally by reaching out to our neighbors, both near and far, to share the love of God that brings hope to all people everywhere.


Blessings and Aloha!
