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.

BE A PART OF THE SPAGHETTI DINNER AND TALENT SHOW
Sunday, May 31 at 5 p.m.

It is totally a family fun time, (a time to put your children in the show for a great experience) but we also have several adults that join in the fun.

Acts can be singing, telling a few good clean jokes, playing an instrument, doing a comic skit or anything you can imagine! We just like the acts to be about five minutes so the keiki won't get home too late for bedtime.

Sign-ups will begin in May and the date of the show and dinner will be Sunday, May 31 at 5 p.m. Bring your neighbors and friends.

Mission Trip to New Orleans Update
Elder John Toillion

In last December's PresByte I shared information about our Presbytery's 10th annual mission trip to
New Orleans (April 25 - May 2) to continue the rebuilding in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

I included an invitation for others to join me in making the trip to New Orleans. I'm delighted to report that Cecile and Rich Brink are joining me along with 17 other members from our Presbytery. The Brinks will be driving 6 hours from the Florida Panhandle while I'll be departing Hawaii the evening of April 24.

In preparation for our trip, the three of us "attended" the first team meeting via Skype on March 7. You could sense the excitement as we spent almost 2 hours getting to know each other as well as receiving details of the trip.

I ask that MPC Prayer Warriors keep the New Orleans' team in your thoughts and prayers especially for
travel mercies and for safety (e.g., we were told to watch out for snakes!).

Thank you to all those that donated food and supplies, cooked food, baked brownies or cookies and served the dinner at the River of Life Mission on March 25th last month.

Our next turn to serve is May 27, 2015. GOOD JOB EVERYONE!

Snow Day Coming

Snow at MPC

In January the children of MPP were blessed with 10 tons of snow. Hawaiian Ice came early in the morning and had "Snow" shooting out of a machine so the children actually could see it "snow". For many of our keiki it was their first experience with snow. We wanted to provide the children with a hands-on learning experience instead of just learning about snow from books or movies.

Our staff and parents even enjoyed this phenomenon with the children. We had hot cocoa and snacks set aside, but the snow took precedence over the goodies. This was such a success that the staff, family and children are looking forward to another "Snow Day" in 2015-2016.

March Work Day Highlights
by Elder John Toillion

We had another great monthly MPC Work Day on Saturday, March 21. Heading the list of volunteers were members of Cub Scout Pack 464 who took on the task of trimming all of our hibiscus bushes. It was no easy task as some of the bushes had not been trimmed in several months. MPC sponsors Pack 464 and in return for our sponsorship they are eager to assist in service projects around the church. Other accomplishments included the overdue repair of the deck behind Room 4. Once again Brother Jim O'Hara led the charge with assistance from MPP Parent Tavita Maea.

The decking posed both a major safety hazard as well as precluded our preschool keiki from using that area to play. Hugh Lee is the expert when it comes to replacing burned out ballast; however, he told me when he replaced one, then the adjacent one burned out, "Someone once said, 'No good deed goes unpunished!'".

Bill Horton and Hugh also have been working hard to clean out and rearrange our primary work storage room. I was astounded that I could actually walk into that storage room without tripping over something. I wish I could say everything on our list was completed and that we can take the next couple of months off – NOT! There are always things to do and not only is everyone's help appreciated, it also helps preclude having to hire someone to do these things.

Last but not least, it's also a great way to build relationships. One of my favorite praise songs is "They Will Know We Are Christians by Our Love" and one verse in particular goes like this:

"We will work with each other; we will work side by side,
We will work with each other; we will work side by side,
And we'll guard each one's dignity
and save each one's pride.
They will know we our Christians by our love."

Please come join us for the next scheduled MPC Work Day on Saturday, April 18.

Easter Sunday
for the Keiki at MPC

Easter Egg HuntWe will continue the tradition this Easter, April 5, by having an Easter Story and Egg Hunt during the Sunday school hour (10:30 a.m.) at MPC in Room 1. Remember to bring your child's Easter basket to collect their goodies.

If you forget, not to worry…Ms. Kathryn has some extras. We will have a separate area for our tiniest ones up to age 4, so they won't get trampled by the older kids.

HE IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN INDEED!
This is a wonderful opportunity to bring grandchildren, neighbors and friends.

Vacation Bible School
Coming Soon!

June 29th thru July 3rd

All the fun begins at 5:30 p.m. each evening and includes dinner!

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!

Thirty Hour Famine Report

Our youth group may be small now but they have will and they have energy! Not to mention hearts for God!! We had 5 teens who submitted themselves to 30 hours of starving just to see how it feels to go hungry and have empathy for those less fortunate.

Besides the starving part, they also gave of service by doing little things around the church to help out.

Gabby Houston helped restock the food pantry with all the food brought in from the Souper-Bowl (another youth service project, by the way!).

Dion Houston, Jr. helped by replacing broken or non-existent rubber bottoms to our folding chairs in the New Wing.

Alex Cuizon, Helen Kim and Joanna Houston helped Ms. Kathryn clean out the storage room where the supplies are kept. Whew! What a dusty, dirty job ~ but someone has to do it and they did it! They also gathered, counted, and sorted the cans, bottles & plastics for HI-5 that they use for their mission projects.

But it wasn't all work! The Youth took their annual trek to the Schofield Cosmic Bowling Alley for a bit of fun. They piled into Ms. Mari's & Ms. Kathryn's cars and were off. They said the hardest part was smelling the wonderful aromas from the snack bar though. 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!

Thank you to Mari Houston and Jim O'Hara who helped chaperone the overnight lock-in as well as the bowling!
