Please join us at the temple to decorate the hanamido (floral frame structure) for our Buddha Day service. If you are able to donate greenery (e.g., small ferns, tea leaves, etc.), please bring them with you or drop it off that morning at 9:00 a.m. Your support and participation is truly appreciated.

The first Sunday service of the month will be followed by a fun activity for the entire family. After the service on April 1, we will be celebrating Earth Day by making flowers using recycled materials.
Ikebana classes in March will be held on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. and Saturday, March 31 at 1:00 p.m. Please bring a low vase, Kenyan, and ikebana scissors (or flower cutting scissors). Cost is $5 per class plus the cost of flowers/foliage ($5-$8). There is a sign-up sheet at the temple.
Participants need confirm their attendance so the instructor can purchase and prepare materials for the class.
Speaker: Rev. Bert Sumikawa
The fourth Sunday of each month will be Remembrance Day for those family members, friends, and pets who passed away during this month in any year. There will be a sign-in sheet for the names of the deceased that members need to fill in before the service begins.
Mats Okamoto, retired agriculture teacher, will continue to share his knowledge of plants and gardening and other topics at monthly gardening classes held at the temple. Bring your gardening questions and/or problems to class and Mats will gladly address them.
