Pentecost—May 31, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Today is Pentecost, the birthday of the church. God sent the Holy Spirit in a mighty wind, and the disciples began to tell everyone about Jesus. In Hawaii, we give people leis on their birthdays, so I have leis for you. And we also sing “Happy Birthday!”

Ascension of Our Lord (transferred)—May 24, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Do you know what “ascension” means? That’s right, it means “go up.” I have something here to help you remember this, these balloons. If I let one go, it goes up, like Jesus. But Jesus did not just disappear. He left the Holy Spirit so God would be with us always. So, here’s a balloon for each of you to remember this lesson.

Easter VI—May 17, 2009

Preacher: Pastor J.P. Sabbithi
Summary: Here’s a brand new dollar bill for each of you, and I have an old, dirty one. Is yours worth more than mine? If I fold it in half, is it worth more? Or if I drop it and it gets all muddy? No, the value doesn’t change. God’s love is like that. If we are dirty, or messed up, or good, or bad, God still loves us. That’s because God has chosen to love us always, no matter what we do. Keep this dollar bill to remind you that your value to God never changes.

Easter V—May 10, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Today’s Gospel says Jesus is the vine, and we are the branches. Have you ever seen grapes growing on a vine? The vine grows along a fence and spreads out so the grapes get lots of sun. At first they are small and sour, but they grow big and sweet. That’s how a vine makes good fruit. Today I found some LCH fruit. This can of Spam represents the love we have for hungry people. When we love others and give them food, we are bearing good fruit.

Easter IV—May 3, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: You probably have never seen a shepherd, but today Jesus says, “I am the good shepherd.” and we are the sheep. Jesus also says, “I will lay down my life for my sheep.” Would you die for a sheep? I don’t think so, but Jesus loves us enough to die for us—and for all the sheep, good and bad. That’s a wonderful message for us all.

Easter III/Earth Day Sunday—April 26, 2009

Preacher: Jim Sullivan
Summary: Today is both the third Sunday in Easter and Earth Day Sunday. Our Gospel story tells how the disciples were witnesses to the transformation of Jesus. In the future, there will be lots of green energy. You will see all of those changes. You will be witnesses to that transformation.

Easter II—April 19, 2009

Preacher: Pastor J.P. Sabbithi
Summary: What do you see on this sheet of stickers? There are many animals, so why do you think your first answer was butterflies? Butterflies are strange things because when they have babies, they are not little butterflies. They are caterpillars, which later change into butterflies. Butterflies are an Easter symbol because of this transformation. It’s like the transformation in our lives when we become Christians.

Easter Sunday—April 12, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Everyone else gets to proclaim the resurrection, but not children. The organ does it, the choir does it, the trumpet does it, and even adults do it. So, today I want you to help me proclaim the resurrection.
