It Was FABULOUS! 


Spaghetti Dinner
and Talent Show

Our 26th Stephen Ministry  Spaghetti Dinner and Talent Show  is just a memory now, but what a  great event it was. There were 70 in  attendance and there was lots of singing,  dancing and music and that was just the Stephen  Ministers in the kitchen!! We are so grateful for  your support of this wonderful ministry and as  always we want to be available to anyone in need  of a good listener. We will miss our beloved Karen  Cabral who is retiring from Stephen Ministry but has  left an indelible mark as the one who got MPC into the program and has supported it and all of us  throughout the years. We are grateful that Paul  Kuehn has stepped into one of the leadership roles  and continue to be grateful for Sally Hastings and Margie Lee as our continuing  Stephen Ministers. Of course we have to thank all the participants in the talent  show, those who return each year and our new talents who we love to see.  Who knew Dan Ashcraft played classical guitar? So, if you missed this year's  event plan to join us next year for a fun event.

S P O C U A  FOUNDATION  Together We
Cross the Bridge 

Subject: 'World Peace & Unity of the Korea 10K Road Race Around Waikiki' 

TO: Members of Mililani Presbyterian Church 

"Hawaii, Where Peace Begins!"  The Sports Culture Academy (SPOCUA) Foundation is a newly founded non-profit organization to  promote the peace in Asia through sports, cultural and academic events in the US. As the first event  here in Hawaii, the Foundation will host the 'World Peace & Unification of Korea 10K Road Race  around Waikiki' to contribute to World Peace. SPOCUA Foundation would appreciate your support  for the event by disseminating the news for the event as widely as possible.  The event will be held on October 8 (Sat.), 2016 from 6 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. starting at Ala Moana  Beach Park, Ala Moana Blvd. – Kalakaua Ave.  Kapiolani Park (returning point) – Kalakaua Ave – Ala Moana Blvd. – Ala Moana Beach Park. This  wonderful running route will excite and satisfy all runners.  SPOCUA Foundation will release more specific information continually to local media companies. If  you want more information in detail, please contact event director Elder Young Kim at 861-3925  or info@spocua.com.  P.S.: SPOCUA Foundation is looking for volunteers to help for the Road Race event. Volunteers will  help in the water stations, refreshment and packet pick up sections, and assist in late registration  and traffic control.  Sports Culture Academy Foundation PO Box 236013, Honolulu, Hawaii 96823  P.P.S.: Elders Young Kim and John Toillion see this event as an opportunity to evangelize to several  hundred if not thousands of participants by having a tent and not only giving out "free" ice cold water  but also providing the true "water of life" in a way that is non-threatening but may very well result in  some of them asking, "Why are you doing this....and for FREE!" That will be our opening to share  why we do what we do and have been doing here at MPC over the past 46 years. We pray that God  through His Holy Spirit will help us use this event to reach people who do not know His Son, and our Savior, Jesus Christ.

    Help Needed 
    We Still Need Volunteers!
        **UPDATE**

Based on the positive response to our request for volunteers, we have decided to move forwardwith changing the way we distribute food from our MPC Food Pantry to our neighborhood families in need, to include the homeless, from daily Monday-Friday to the 3rd & last Saturdays of the month.

Beginning June 18, we plan to pass out pre-packed grocery bags between 9 a.m - 11 a.m. We need 2 volunteers per Saturday. PTL! As of May 27, we have 16 of the 28 volunteers needed until the end of 2016.

Many of us remember a recent Sunday message by Pastor Ron which included Jesus' command to His followers to "Feed My Sheep!" MPC has been doing this since 1970 and we don't plan on stopping this any time soon.

Please SIGN UP today inside the double glass doors on the left counter just outside the front office. Contact Elder John Toillion or Office Manager Kathryn Tingley with any questions you may have.

From the Deacon's Corner

Our final Deacon spotlight shines on Pastor Ron who  attends the Deacon meetings and gives us a pastor's report each month.

He was born and raised in  Honolulu. He has one brother and 3 sisters. He has  lived in San Francisco  and Los Angeles and  lived in Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina before  joining us here in Mililani.

He and his lovely wife Margie  have been married for 28 years. His hobbies include golf,  photography and traveling, which he did a lot of when he  was a performer before becoming a pastor. One of his favorite Bible verses is Isaiah 40:31 "But those who wait  on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up  with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary,  they shall walk and not faint."

MPC Projects Update
(Finance & Facilities Ministry Team) 

Perhaps you've noticed some recently completed projects around our church grounds. 

One project was a long time coming – the installation of a large fan on the Fellowship Lanai to help keep us cool,  especially during the hot summer months. 

Another project is a major upgrade and addition to the audio visual capabilities in the Worship Center. Not only do  we have new speakers, but we now have two flat screen TVs. 

A third project that is underway is the long needed repair to the Worship Center's windows. Along with the repairs will  be a new cross as the old one was in very bad shape after it was installed back in 1986 – 40 years ago. 

Upcoming projects include the following: 

a. New Fire Alarm System: Installation of this new and expanded system was completed last June, but  took several months to obtain the necessary permits, but which is now completed. This will allow us to increase the  number of preschoolers starting with the new preschool year this July. 

b. A/C Installation: Installation of a split air conditioning system in the new wing as well as in the front office. 

c. Drainage: Repair of our playground drainage system which will consist of expanding the size of PVC  pipes from 3" to 8". You may have noticed after a heavy rain we've observed swelling of the playground due to too  much water at one time. Likewise we have also observed ponding in the back area of the playground. This repair is  tentatively scheduled for the first two weeks of July while the preschool children are on break. 

d. Pressure Washing: Also during these two weeks, we plan to have all cement areas (Fellowship Lanai,  sidewalks) professionally pressure washed. 

e. Black Metal Gate Replacement: The gate leading from the Worship Center to the adult bathrooms will  also be replaced. 

There are several other projects in the works, but the above are ones that were identified as being a high priority.  Other projects include upgrading the oldest part of the education wing and office with new windows, A/C, and a new  roof. Also in planning stages is refinishing the Worship Center floor and the need to replace our 40 year old chairs. 

This is a good time to highlight the need for helpers at our monthly Work Days which, yes, Elder Rich Gordon, are  on Saturdays and not Sundays, usually the third Saturday from 8 a.m. - noon. Many of the smaller tasks plus yard  service are done by volunteers which saves us approximately $10,000 per year – a savings that can be used for the  above as well as other projects. Did you know? Each of our sister churches (Hanmi, Samoan, Micronesians)  participate in our Work Days. Likewise our Cub Scout Troop 464 and one of the Girl Scout Troops come and assist  as well. MPP parents have also been coming to help. 

We've been blessed this past two years with receiving a number of grants as well as bequests from former  members which have covered many of the costs in facilities upgrades. Soooo, with my Treasurer's hat on, if you are  unable to participate at the Work Days, there is another way you can contribute through designated donations for  any one of the aforementioned projects. 

You'll be receiving more updates in the weeks ahead. Kindly refer any questions/comments to Elders Patrick Smith  or Russell Malone, one of our newest Elders on the Facilities and Finance Ministry Team.

Stay Tuned

CHANGE IS INEVITABLE: GROWTH IS OPTIONAL 

A very outstanding Adult Christian Education possibility is in the air. The  Rev. Dr. Grant Lee, retired pastor of Waialua UCC, is considering the  possibility of facilitating adult education for MPC for the short term the  last 3 weeks of June and possibly for a longer term beginning in August.  Pastor Grant Lee is a man of great experience and insights with a  humble spirit and warm inviting personality.  If you have not dipped into Adult Education at MPC, you will have a most rewarding experience of growth  and development with Grant Lee. Stay tuned for what may be for you an adventure in personal and  spiritual growth. Watch the Sunday bulletins for announcements about Adult Christian Education.
