Worship Led by Kamehameha Students Cancelled

Topside Molokai UCC Churches News Release

The Kamehameha Deputation Teams scheduled to lead worship at the Topside Molokai UCC Churches on Aug. 24 have postponed their visit to Molokai.  Instead they will be helping with the clean-up in the Puna District of Hawaii Island.  We apologize for any disappointment and will reschedule for a later date.

The Kamehameha Schools’ 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.

Any questions can be directed to Kahu Napua Burke at 808-553-3823.
