Clothing exchange, kids' fair to be held Saturday

Construction to begin at Kihei Lutheran Church
Construction of a 3,800-square-foot expansion of the Kihei Lutheran Church is expected to begin next week, according to church Pastor Dave Krueger.
Viking Construction is the general contractor for the approximately $900,000 project to expand the church's worship area as well as classrooms and meeting areas, Krueger said.
About half of the money needed for the project has been raised, he said, with the other half to be obtained in a loan from the Mission Investment Fund. The fund was established to help Lutheran churches build and expand, he said.
During construction in November, a false wall will be built in the church's worship area, reducing it by about 40 seats, he said. Because less seating space will be available, the church will have two Sunday services, at 8 and 10:30 a.m.
Construction is expected to be completed by mid-March, Krueger said.
A groundbreaking ceremony for the project was held Sept. 15 as part of the morning worship service.
The church is at the intersection of Piilani Highway and Moi Place.
