Los Alamos Christian Church News:
The Christian Church of Los Alamos holds its annual worship service and “Aloha Sunday” luncheon.
“Aloha Sunday” is at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, September 18.
“Hula Mai Ka Lani” (a team from Hula Worship) will lead the musical part of the worship with the traditional hula. Barefoot, they wear a flowing traditional dress with colorful flowers pinned in their hair. They will not dance to entertain, but to worship. In the Polynesian tradition, it is not just the spoken or chanted words, but the movement of the whole body that expresses worship.
All who attend are encouraged to dress “Hawaiian” for this special worship service, but regular attire is fine.
When asked what it meant to show up “Hawaiian style,” the Hula Worship team leader replied, “A house full of people ready to worship the Lord.”
Hula Mai Ka Lani are in town as they host a gathering of many cultures in Santa Fe Plaza from noon to 7 p.m. on Saturday, September 17. It is a gathering of believers who express their faith through dance and music. It won’t just be Hawaiian but Korean, Filipino, Ukrainian, Hispanic, Messianic Jew, Nigerian, and Native American. Everyone is invited to attend this multicultural worship.
There will be a Luau luncheon fundraiser after Sunday worship in the Christian Church Fellowship Hall. Funds raised will be directed to support Hula Ministries.
