A warm embrace of love and appreciation surrounded the Arnolds this morning, as a special combined chapel honored Pastor Ron and Aunty Dee's 25 years of service to the church and school.

Each class, from P3 through 12th grade, presented the Arnolds with a heartfelt gift. Classes prepared pictures, notes, photos, and verses of encouragement to express their gratitude for Pastor Ron and Dee's leadership and faithful support of KCS. Miss Kang's 2nd grade class shared the song, "Eye of the Storm," and the high school presented a dance to "Joy."

The KCS 'ohana surprised Pastor Ron by joining with him to sing "Raise the Cross," a song he wrote with former KCC Worship Minister Tony Tam Sing. During the Worship Center expansion process in the late 90s, Pastor Ron stood strong in his convictions to "raise the cross" that boldly stands as the focal point of the exterior of the Worship Center, a symbol of hope and healing to the Kaimuki community and beyond.

Elders and KCC/KCS staff gathered together to close the celebration in prayer. Inspired by the Arnolds' milestone of ministry at Kaimuki Christian, Principal Mrs. Ahn pledged, "We, the staff of KCS, will continue to Raise the Cross of Jesus."
