Dear Gregory and Members of First Unitarian Church of Honolulu,


You have successfully completed the Five Practices of Welcome Renewal for 2024. Sincere

community in the following ways:

I. Becoming a Welcoming Congregation – 2005

• All of Us – 10/29/2023

III. Welcoming Days of Observance

IV. Welcoming Religious Education

V. Support a Welcoming Project

Tea, and Lavender Clinic

You can expect to receive two newly designed Welcoming Congregation posters in the mail. In

With appreciation,
