On February 14, 2021, Kona UMC, Kailua-Kona, on the “Big Island of Hawai'i” hosted Bishop Peggy Johnson during their 10:00 a.m. worship service, with the title “The Eyes of Love.”
Kona UMC is new to Deaf Ministry, and the start-up was funded in part by a grant from the Committee. The senior pastor is Sunny Ahn.
The church's services can be viewed on YouTube, Facebook, and their own website. The 10:00 service includes ASL. This will be expanded to include the 8:30 service when the Covid-19 situation is settled.
