Kapa‘a UCC celebrates 100th anniversary
Kapa‘a United Church of Christ on Kaua‘i celebrated a century of missions and ministry with the theme "From Generation to Generation". Their 100th anniversary celebrations spanned a Saturday and Sunday, and included guest musicians, a variety of voices, cultural performers, worship, and a guest preacher, Associate Conference Minister Valerie Ross. Neighbors from Kapa‘a First Hawaiian Church, a sister congregation right across the street, were also in attendance.
