100th Anniversary Campaign
KUC 100 Years – The Ministry Continues
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”

2014 Pledge Drive
In 2013, KUC received 156 pledges of faith that totaled over $600,000 toward our 5 year $5,000,000 goal. LORD, we thank you for these pledges of faith from so many generous hearts. Please take these pledges of faith and bless each person with favor in Your own way. With these pledges and the 1M already received into the building fund, the gym renovation was paid for.
KUC is launching the 2014 Pledge Renewal Drive for the Capital Campaign with a pledge form handout in the bulletin/Ike Pono. We now seek to raise funds to renovate and expand the Sanctuary and Welcome Center. With this goal ahead of us, we are asking the congregation to reevaluate your current pledge and prayerfully consider renewing/confirming and/or increasing your pledge for this next calendar year. We are aiming for 200 pledges in 2014. The new 2014 pledge form is intended to integrate your current 2013 pledge and what you will give to the capital campaign for 2014.

As we begin our Year of Jubilee, we are in awe of what God has done through the ministries of KUC. We are blessed by His faithfulness to our ministry of “loving God and loving people” as we reach out to the people of Kalihi, Hawaii and the world.
This year of celebration brings many exciting ventures for KUC. As announced earlier, the gym renovation will begin this month along with an update of the master plan of the campus that will include the expansion and renovation of the Sanctuary and the Welcome Center.
Our Capital Campaign Committee has been tasked with raising funds for these projects. The campaign goal is $5,000,000.
Gym Renovation Project: $1,500,000
Sanctuary Expansion/Renovation Project: $2,000,000
Welcome Center Expansion/Renovation Project: $1,500,000
Over the years through your generous support to the building fund, we have already raised over $1,000,000.
We will be holding small group meetings with members and friends of KUC to review the projects and to provide methods and opportunities for giving. We will also be reaching out to the community, businesses, corporations and foundations for their support. Meeting dates and times will be announced in the near future.
We look forward to meeting and sharing with you how you can be a part of continuing the ministries of KUC.
