“Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and praise the Lord,” Psalm 134:2.

“I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands," Psalm 62:4.

Ho’omana, which means “praise and worship,” is a ministry that provides students the opportunity to learn interpretive sign language to worship God and express their love for Jesus. Under the direction of Dayna Nakamura, second grade teacher, the group meets once a week after school to rehearse. They perform throughout the school year at chapel, MAC Week and at the school’s annual Fun Fair. Students in grades three through six are invited to participate.
