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.

Give Aloha is an annual program through which Foodland directs its charitable giving to the organizations that are important to its customers.
All Hawaii 501 (c)(3) organizations (which includes MPC/MPP) are invited to participate each year. During September, Maika`i customers are invited to make a donation of up to $249 (per person, per organization) at checkout to their favorite nonprofit organization registered in Give Aloha. Foodland matches a portion of each donation. This year, Foodland and the Western Union Foundation will match each donation up to a total of $300,000 for all organizations combined.
Since the program began in 1999, a total of more than $21 million has been raised for the community. Mililani Presbyterian Church and Mililani Presbyterian Preschool are registered to participate in this year's program that runs from September 1 - 30, 2014.
During last year's campaign, the total received by MPC/MPP was $3,602.83. This amount reflects church contributions of $2,936.54 based on 15 participants. For tax purposes, provide a copy of your receipt to John Toillion, MPC Treasurer, who will ensure your donation is recorded.

Vacation Bible School
Blessings for All

Devin & Rachel Van Maanen

We sadly said farewell to Michelle Emerson as she is off to Presbyterian Seminary in Austin, Texas. What a great example of a caregiver she has been to those she formally met with in Stephen Ministry; and otherwise as you saw her around the church. We wish Michelle and Peter God's Blessings and we know we will stay in touch. Our newly trained Stephen Ministers continue to be assigned to carereceivers. If you are in need of care, please call Pastor Ron, 623-6663, Karen Cabral, 623-1596 or Diana Toillion, 625-1875.
