Saturday Morning Prayer Service
Brothers and sisters in Christ, we invite you to come to the Saturday Morning Prayer Service at 7 A.M., if you want to have a quiet time with God! Approximately 20 people have been gathering since July. You will experience the happiness of starting a day with God.
The program is about 15 minutes. It is done in English and Korean. After the service, you will pray on your own while music plays. Coffee/refreshment time is very enjoyable too.

Our beloved Roy Johnson passed away peacefully into
God's nearer presence on Thursday, June 26, 2014 with
family at his side at Tripler Army Medical Center.
Roy had several God-given gifts which he was eager to
share with everyone he met. Not only did he serve his
country as member of the Air Force for 21 years, he also
served as an associate professor at Leeward Community
College teaching Computer Science.
Roy served his community well, volunteering as an AARP
Tax Coordinator, dog therapist for St. Francis West
Hospital, the Bishop Museum, Wahiawa General Hospital
and various equestrian groups.
Additionally, Roy served actively at Wheeler Army Chapel, and here at Mililani Presbyterian Church where he
served as a Deacon, as a member of our bi-monthly River of Life team, coordinator for our Men's Breakfast (also
known for his homemade grits!), Kids for Christ Program, Sunday money counter, and as a helper in several other
MPC special events.
The memory of Roy will long be remembered as an inspiration to the members of MPC and many others.
Thank you, Bill & Cheryl Horton, for

Coming October 4
A new program, THE DINERS' CLUB, will be starting off on October 4 under the direction of Tish and Dan Ashcraft.
This is the way it will work: Various groups of eight or nine folks will join on the first Saturday of each month to have
dinner together at one of the homes. This group will stay together for several months and then regroup so folks can get to know others in another
Please sign up on lanai after church on Sundays. If you are willing to host the group or be responsible for that one group's plans coordinator), please indicate when you sign up. We would like everyone to be included in groups so we really get acquainted
with everyone in the church. Each group can make the dinner plans or even choose to do something else
that one evening a month.
Contact Tish Ashcraft at 221-5379 for more information or see her on lanai after church on Sundays.
Our new ministers are all geared up and ready for new carereceivers.
If you are
wanting a friend who just listens as you go through a difficult time, we are blessed to
be there for you. Stephen Ministers are equipped with Christian resources which may
include prayer, blessings and hugs.
Please call Pastor Ron, 623-6663, Karen Cabral
623-1596 or Diana Toillion 625-1875 for more information.

We are participating in Give Aloha, Foodland's Annual Community Matching Gifts Program. This
program honors Foodland's founder, Maurice J. "Sully" Sullivan, and continues his legacy of giving back
to the community.
* How It Works
From September 1-30, customers are invited to make donations of up to a cumulative total of $249 per
person, per organization to participating Hawaii non-profit organizations at checkout. Donations made without a Maika'i Card will not be matched. Individuals must use their own Maika'i Card to make a
donation. Foodland and the Western Union Foundation will match a portion of each donation.
* Matching Gift
The Western Union Foundation has generously donated $50,000 to add to Foodland's gift of $250,000 to
Hawaii non-profit organizations participating in Give Aloha this year. Therefore, the total gift that will be
given to all participating organizations combined is $300,000.
* How To Donate
At checkout, present your Maika`i Card and inform the cashier that you would like to make a donation to
our organization. If you do not have a Maika'i Card, you may request one. Our five digit registration code
is 78296. Your donation will be added to your grocery purchase total. You may give up to $249 per
organization (donations exceeding $249 will not be matched). The amount you have donated to us and the name of our organization will appear on your receipt. Any donation must be made payable to Foodland,
Sack N Save or Foodland Farms. Donor names will not be released to our organization, so if you would
like us to know of your gift, please contact us directly so that we may properly acknowledge your gift.
* Are These Contributions Tax Deductible?
These contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Please save your store receipt for tax
purposes since it will be the only record you will have of your donation.
*How Will Matching Gifts Be Calculated?
Matching Gifts will be calculated after the end of the program. Organizations will receive 100% of all customer donations given to their organization, plus their %age of Foodland and the Western Union Foundation's $300,000 matching gift. The portion of the matching gift that each organization will receive will be based on the total dollar amount of customer donations designated to that organization as a percentage of all customer donations received for all organizations.
