3Y Ministry


The Youth, Young Families and Young Adults ministry has been intentional in realizing its vision of reaching out to youth, young families and young adults in serving their wholistic needs.  It is the intent of this ministry in developing leaders amongst our young people.

Involve them in the life of the church and enrich their spiritual life and growth.  It is also the intent of this ministry to reach out to our community by building relationships and networking with neighboring schools and other organizations for a possible partnership in ministry for your people.

Walking with our Ancestors:  The Journey to the Homelands


Sponsored by Critical Education for Engaged Communities (CEEC), and Young Adults Ministry of Harris United Methodist Church


Date:  Saturday, March 16, 2013

Time:  1:00 pm

Start:  Kokua Kalihi Valley, 2239 N. School Street, Honolulu

End:  Harris United Methodist Church, 20 S. Vineyard Boulevard, Honolulu

Car pool suggested or get dropped off.

Bring walking shoes and water.


Join us in 4t6h annual Stations of the Cross as we mourn and honor 5 sacred sites in Kalihi.  At each Station we will listen to the voices of the ancestors, share and witness the current struggles of our people,

and collectively dream a new vision for the future.  At each site, we will summon voices of the past and listen to the suffering and resistance of each generation.  Each station represents a home from which we were displaced and to which we return.


For some, this pilgrimage reminds us of the homelands we left behind.  For others, it reminds us of the home that is no longer ours.  Together, as we walk through our sorrows we will begin to build a bridge of hope between the souls of the native and the migrant, and offer those hope in prayer.


Tentative Themes for each Station include:


KPT:  housing.  Displacement.  Samoan.  Tongan,  Micronesian.  Twin Towers of Hope.


Puea Cementery:  Joseph Kahahawai,  Hoomanao, forgotten, local people, Hawaiian and Filipino, democratic revolution.


Lanakila:  TB.  TB test.  Immigrant.  Sick.  Dirty.  Health services.  Dialysis.  Health Care for all.


A'ala Park:  Railroad, Baseball, Homelessness, Skating, Manuela Boy, Political Rallies, Democracy, landfill, Nuuanu Stream, 1920 Sugar Strike.


Harris United Methodist Church:  Liberation Theology, Nagasaki, Issei generation, Dan Inouye,  June Shimokawa, Nikkei Community Church.


We will conclude our journey with a closing liturgy at Harris UMC Courtyard followed by a potluck at Miyama Hall.  You can drop off your food at the Harris UMC Kitchen before going to the starting point.
