Mission and Vision

Ko Kākou Hōkūkūlaʻa ʻula
(Our Sacred Guiding Star)

We are a communion of saints who worship Christ and serve others.

We embrace the Hawaiian values of:
Aloha – We love and respect God and one another;
Mana – We respect the Spirit of God within each of us and all things;
Malama – We are good stewards of God's creation;
Pono – We are righteous and just in all our undertakings.

"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, Rejoice." — Philippians 4:4

To offer ministry to children and youth within and outside the church that provides Sunday school, that enriches experience with and knowledge of God's gifts to our World and exemplifies Hawaiian values, that deepens faith, and that expands the roles of children in St. John's worship and ministries.

  3. To establish a music ministry inclusive of the current choir that uses local vocal and instrumental talent and is exciting and nourishing to the spirit.

  4. To establish and support a hospitality ministry considerate of how visitors are welcomed and new members are incorporated.
