Christian Church of Los Alamos News:
The Christian Church of Los Alamos is hosting its annual “Aloha Sunday” Worship Service and luncheon.
“Aloha Sunday” is 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 18.
“Hula Mai Ka Lani” (a Hula Worship team) will lead the music portion of the worship with traditional hula. Barefoot, they wear flowing traditional dress with colorful flowers pinned into their hair. They will not be dancing to entertain, but to worship. In the Polynesian tradition it is not just the words spoken or sung, but the movement of the entire body that expresses worship.
Everyone who attends is encouraged to dress “Hawaiian” for this special service of worship, but regular attire is perfectly suitable.
When asked what showing up “Hawaiian style” means, the Hula Worship team’s leader said, “A full house of people ready to worship the Lord”.
Hula Mai Ka Lani are in town because they are hosting a gathering of many cultures on the Santa Fe Plaza noon to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept 17. It is a gathering of believers who express their faith through dance and music. It will not only be Hawaiian but Korean, Filipino, Ukrainian, Hispanic, Messianic Jewish, Nigerian and Native American. Everyone is invited to attend this multi-cultural worship.
There will be a Luau lunch fundraiser after the worship service Sunday in the fellowship hall of the Christian Church. Funds raised will be directed to support Hula Ministries.
