Topside Molokai UCC Churches News Release
The Kamehameha Schools (KS) Deputation Teams (with students from all three campuses) will be leading worship services at the Topside Molokai UCC Churches on Sunday, Aug. 24. At 8 a.m., they will be at the Ho`olehua Congregational Church. At 9:30 am, they will be at Kalaiakamanu Hou. At 10 a.m. worship will be held at Kalua`aha Congregational Church. Finally, at 11 a.m. the team will be at Waialua Congregational Church. The Molokai community and KS/BE alumni are cordially invited to attend any of the worship services.
The KS Deputation Team began in the late 1940s under Kamehameha Schools, Kapalama Campus Chaplain Stephen Desha, Jr. Rev. Desha observed many Protestant Hawaiian churches were without pastors. This concerned him greatly. He decided Kamehameha Schools could extend its educational service to the Hawaiian community by training students to lead worship services. The Deputation Team was then sent out to churches that requested assistance. The Deputation Team continues today following this same pattern.
