Aloha from the Pastor’s Desk!
I hope that everyone is coping with the current situation as best as you can. I pray for the health and safety of you and your families at this time of crisis. If you aren’t watching my seven part series on “How To Have A Positive Attitude” you can watch them here on our website or on Facebook. I think my message will uplift you and provide you comfort in this scary and sometimes trying times. When you’re feeling like all hope is lost open your Bible to Psalm 91, and know that He will protect those that seek His refuge:
“1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” 3 Surely he will save you from the Fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. 8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. 9 If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, 10 no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. 11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; 12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. 13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. 14 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. 15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
This coming Sunday, I will be bringing forth a special message: on “L.O.C.K.D.O.W.N.” which deals with the “Corona virus” streaming live at 9 a.m. (HST) from the beautiful Koloa Church Sanctuary on our “Koloa Church” Facebook. It is a very encouraging message that will minister to you and help you to apply some very important principles to your life in this hour. It will also be posted on the “The Koloa Church” Facebook videos, my personal Facebook (Harold Kilborn) and on our Sermons page here on our website.
I know that many in our congregation family are facing tough financial times and understand if you are unable to give, but for those that have it in their hearts to give we’ve set up an online giving feature on our website. We have several giving program options we will use your generosity to further the work of the Gospel in our church and also in our community. We are very thankful for any of those that can support The Church At Koloa with your tithes and offerings.
If you have any questions, feel free to call the Koloa Church at: 808-742-9956
May the Lord shine His blessings upon you and your family,
Pastor Harold Kilborn
