A Little Slice of Heaven!
Make that pizza.

It is time once again for the annual Deacon Pizza Party.

On April 17 we will have delicious pizza, fresh garden salad and chocolate chip bars provided by the Deacons. And the fun doesn't stop there.

We will have games and a chance to win the table centerpieces as well as an opportunity to get better acquainted with your Deacon and your fellow district members.

The Deacons will have sign ups on April 3 and April 10 with a possible visit from a renowned guest chef. See us on the lanai during fellowship to reserve your spot for a delicious and fun event.

Aloha,
The Deacons

IT'S COMING!
The Annual
STEPHEN MINISTRY Spaghetti Dinner and Talent Show
May 22, at 5 p.m.

May 22 will come faster than you think. But you still have time to practice up. This is a totally family evening so if you have some "budding stars" that want to sing or dance this is the perfect venue for that.

Adults love to be "hams" too so we look forward to your sharing your talents with us also. Juggling, telling a funny short story, doing a skit, singing, dancing or whatever you dream up would be great.

The Stephen Ministers will be cooking up some great spaghetti recipes. The dinner is $7 for adults and children ages 6 – 12 are $4. Under 6 are free.

Profits are used to help defray the Stephen Ministry continuing education costs.

Lastly, if you or anyone you know, could use a listening ear, we as Stephen Ministers, are here to walk through the rough times with you. We consider it an honor to be of service and wish to help.

Please contact:
Diana Toillion, 625-1875,
Karen Cabral, 623-1596, Paul Kuehn, 209-605-9758 or Pastor Lee, 623-6663
for more information.

PIE-IN-THE-FACE
Fundraiser Report

Thank You, MPCers! We raised $215.00 in just 20 minutes to go towards our goal of feeding one child for a year. And it was fun!!! The brave souls who stepped up to be "PIED" were Pastor Ron, Kathryn Tingley and Elder Rich Gordon.

Meet your Deacons

This month you get a two for one. We are introducing the two Deacons who serve the Second Service.


Suk Ran Cho

Grace Jung

Suk Ran Cho
You will see her in the kitchen helping get the Second Service potluck ready. She is also spearheading making the salad for the Deacon Pizza Party. Suk Ran was born in Korea and has a brother still there but her sister lives here on Oahu as does her mother who is in a care home and her two children, a son and a daughter, who have blessed her with 3 grandchildren and one on the way. Her servant heart makes her a good Deacon and we are thankful to have her at our meetings.

Grace Jung
She and her husband and their son who is currently in the 10th grade have lived in Fremont, California and Irvine, California, as well as Starkville, Mississippi. Her previous jobs have been as a substitute teacher and a tax preparer but she is currently working for the postal service. Her favorite Bible verse is Philippians 4:4-7. Rejoice in the Lord always. I say it again: Rejoice. Let your gentleness be evident to all.
Mahalo to our Second Service Deacons.

Two New Additions
to our MPC Library

The Best Angel Stories 2016

Published by Guidepost
Magazine, this is a collection
of personal testimonies by
regular folks. Heartwarming
and uplifting to know we are
watched over.

 


The Storybook of God's Great Love
This is a beautifully illustrated
children's book on the Old
Testament. It begins with 'When
God said Hello' (Genesis 1) and
finishes with 'God's great
construction project' (Nehemiah 1).
Donated to us by Pastor Ron

 

If you are cleaning out your personal library, we take gently used Christian books - self-help, novels, Bible study and children & teen books, too.

Still Looking for a MPC Librarian
Anyone who has a little bit of time and an interest in books would be welcome to come help us out. Our books aren't really in any order and could use a good dusting. If interested, please call the church.

Regular Happenings

Youth Group Activities for March

For April, 2016

Mililani Church
4/10 Youth Group @ noon

  • We are taking it easy this month due to all we did in March!
    (HIM conference, Christian Rock Concert, 30-hr. Famine, Bowling, service project on storage shed & HI-5 recycling project).

30-Hour
Famine Report

3/11-3/12

Our youth group may be small but they have will and they. We had 4 teens (Helen & Andrew Kim, Alex Cuizon and Gabby Houston) and two adults (Erica Utu and Meghran Ballio-Yamaguchi) who submitted themselves to 30 hours of
starving just to see how it feels to go hungry and to have empathy for those less fortunate.
Besides the starving part, they also gave of service by cleaning out the table/chair room. It took them 3 hours! Whew! What a dusty, dirty job ~ but someone had to do it and they did it!

But it wasn't all work! The Youth took their annual trek to the Schofield Cosmic Bowling Alley for a bit of fun. They all piled into Alex's mom's van and Ms. Kathryn drove them all. They said the hardest part was smelling the wonderful aromas from the snack bar! Hard to concentrate on bowling when the lanes on
either side of you are eating pizza or hamburgers & fries.

Oh well, I guess that means we need to go back again so we can eat, too! Maybe we'll score better!
They finished off the event with a Famine/Feast (breaking the fast) at 6 p.m. on Saturday. All the mothers showed up with tons of great food to fill up the bellies.

Thanks, MOMs! Also thank you to Meghran Ballio-Yamaguchi who was the other brave soul that chaperoned the overnight
part. And to Mrs. Jessica Hayashi who lent the van to Kathryn and then went back at 11 p.m. to bring the group back to the church.

And a really big MAHALO to Erica for the great job she is doing with our teens!!!
