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.

MISSION REPORT FROM NEW ORLEANS
by John Toillion

Aloha from NOLA (stands for "New Orleans Louisiana") where I just woke up at 5:30 a.m. after arriving yesterday, April 25. I would like to say I woke up from the excitement of being a member of this mission trip - which is true; however, with 12 guys sleeping in one room at least two were having a "sawing logs" contest early this morning. At least I didn't need to bring an alarm clock!


How excited I am to be here to be one of 19 members as representatives of Presbytery of the Pacific churches which have been sending annual teams since 2006. I have the privilege of being the first representative from a Hawaii church to participate in this exciting mission.

While we won't receive our official orientation briefing until this evening (April 26), we have been told that our group will be split into two teams to work at two different work projects.
Hard to believe that Katrina, a CAT 5 hurricane, happened in August 2005 which resulted in at least 1,833 deaths and massive flooding wiping out thousands of homes and businesses making it the deadliest United States hurricane since the 1928 Okeechobee hurricane. It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years and thousands of homes still remain vacant as evidenced by yesterday's drive from NOLA airport to Project Homecoming's Village where we'll be living for the next 7 days.

Before we begin our assigned projects tomorrow (April 27), today is dedicated to attending worship at First Grace United Methodist Church, which is really two churches in one as the result of Katrina wiping out both churches, they decided to join. There will be more on this in later updates. Our second planned adventure is to go to the French Quarter for lunch and a short tour to see how this area has recovered from Katrina.

Our devotion at 11:30 p.m. last night was from Philippians 2:1-11 in which we learned to be humble and to have a servant heart like Jesus Christ. Even after just being here less than 36 hours, I sense the urgency and need for teams like ours to come and contribute in the rebuilding of life here in NOLA. One of my prayers, hopes and dreams is that Hawaii will continue to be represented on subsequent trips to NOLA.

In closing know that your prayers are being felt not just by me but by the team as well. For more pictures of this venture, you can find them on my FACEBOOK page under "John Toillion".

A New Twist on Vacation Bible School!

A Month of Sundays
The 4 Sundays in June

VBS

The Christian Ed Team has decided that this year we will try something new. Instead of doing a week of evenings, we are going to do a month of Sundays for VBS!

That's right, this year we will
use the Sunday school hour for the 4 Sundays in June as VBS Sundays! The children will still learn the Bible point, verse & meet the Buddy of the day.

buffaloThey will still
experience the Bible Adventure & Imagination Station activities. But it will be on a much smaller
scale giving all of our volunteers a rest for this year.

Our new CE Director, Tim Cubero, is very excited to be involved and work with the Sunday school teachers to bring this event to our own MPC children.

So Parents—plan to bring your keiki this June to Sunday school so they don't miss out!
Friends are welcome!!!

Kathryn will be recruiting volunteers and asking for donations. Watch for the sign-up boards on the lanai during fellowship. And check out the bulletin for more updates as time gets closer.

Registration for the children will begin in June. Think of neighbors, friends, grand children, nephews and nieces that you can invite. (As well as your own kids, of course!!!) Teens are always needed for Crew Leaders. It's great fun and a terrific way to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Won't you pray about a way you can help? Volunteer Today!
