Coronavirus Response Plan

With August 21’s announcement that our Mayor and Governor have restricted social gatherings both indoors and outdoors to groups of 10, we are contacting in regards to this weekend's plans. Though religious gatherings are technically exempt from the restrictions, we feel the most Christlike decision in this moment is for us to move to a digital service this Sunday, August 23, drive through Food Pantry/God’s Closet Sunday, August 23 at 12 PM, and for August 22's 24-Hour Day of Prayer to continue as planned.


The pastoral team will be meeting together Monday, August 24 at 7 PM to flesh out a full plan through September 30 to coincide with the new restrictions. Your Connection Group leaders will contact you about individual group plans to meet in person or via Zoom. If you have prayerful thoughts or questions in regards to our plan, please contact Pastor Malorri (808) 491-5374 or Pastor Ray (808) 491-5871.


Our community numbers have jumped to 37 active cases today with 7-8 cases currently at our Hilo Medical Center. There is clear evidence of local community spread occurring. This being said, we will reiterate what we sent out on Thursday: we feel called to remind our church body of the importance of our actions each and every day. None of us are isolated. Our actions affect friends, family, neighbors, church family, and even strangers. Please observe proper hand washing, sanitizing, and face mask measures to help our community and limit all social gatherings to 10 people or less. Thanks for your faithfulness in these matters.


Above all, pray for our community and world, particularly those on the front lines of serving those who are sick and their family/friends. Even this week, people within our congregation have direct relatives or connections with those who have tested positive for COVID-19. May we be the peaceful, hopeful people of God in the midst of all the fear, anger, and other emotions at play in these days.

Grace and Peace,

Pastors Ray & Malorri Seamon

Remembering Christ at Mealtimes

Take a moment before you eat together as a household or as an individual to remember Christ's sacrifice for us. Though we can't partake in communion together right now, we trust that God's grace is still able to meet with us! Christ gave Himself for us not just to make us right with God, but to send us out into our world as servants willing to be broken and poured out like Christ. This is especially important to remember in our world right now!


Here are some ways you can pause to remember the grace poured out upon us at mealtime:

  • Take 30 seconds to all silently thank God for being with you today.
  • Select someone to pray a prayer of thanks out loud for the meal you're about to eat. It can be one sentence, or something longer, but use simple language like you're speaking with Jesus at your table....because you are!
  • Say our words of communion together - have one person prompt by saying, "Let's remember what is true together..." then all respond, "Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again."
  • Finally, have one person read the following blessing or a favorite verse from Scripture, and then enjoy your meal with gratitude:

Be present at our table, Lord,

Be here and everywhere adored.

Bless your people, and grant that we

may feast in paradise with thee. Amen.

– John Wesley
