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.

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.
Update on MPC's
Many of you know of MPC's long history with sponsoring both a Cub and Boy Scout programs for over 40 years. John Martin continues to be MPC's Scout representative (COR). Recently we have had meetings with CS Pack 464 to express our (MPC's) support in helping them build their troop. For example, to help with their expenses, we invited them to participate in our recent Rummage Sale and they did fairly well ($70). We also invited them to come during our Sunday Fellowship time to offer their popcorn goodies, so look for them on Sunday, October 12. They in turn have pledged support to helping out at some of our monthly Work Days. More importantly we encourage everyone to share with friends, neighbors and co-workers that MPC continues to have a vibrant scouting program, and while our Boy Scout Troop 264 is currently on hiatus, we're hoping that it will start up again soon. See John Martin or Elder Park for more information.
'Movies Under the Stars'
Gets an Encore
On Saturday evening September 20, our MPC Preschool hosted the first in a series of "Movies Under the Stars" featuring an all-time favorite, Mary Poppins, shown on our new 12-foot inflatable screen. An estimated 50 MPC and MPP-ers attended and enjoyed free popcorn supplied by Hawaiian Tel Federal Credit Union as well as hotdogs, potato salad, chips and drinks that were offered for a donation. As scripture states: There will be a shelter to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and protection from the storm and the rain. - Isaiah 4:6 Our covered lanai was a blessing for this outdoor event! Even with the rain, families were able to enjoy the movie! It was a fun night for all!
The next "Movie Under the Stars" is being planned for Saturday, November 22
featuring The Croods, a 2013 American 3D computer-animated adventure comedy film set in a fictional prehistoric Pliocene era known as The Croodaceous (a period which contains fictional prehistoric creatures). A caveman's position as a "Leader of the Hunt" is threatened by the arrival of a prehistoric genius who comes up with revolutionary new inventions as they trek through a dangerous but exotic land in search of a new home. This is a great opportunity to invite friends, co-workers, and neighbors.

New Bible Study
About to Begin
HEAVEN - IT'S NOT WHAT YOU THINK.
This 6-week DVD/Book study
answers questions like:
"What is Heaven like?"
"What will we do in Heaven?"
"Should we be excited to go there?"
Chip Ingram digs into scripture to reveal that it's more than harps, clouds, and
Scripture reveals what our heavenly home will be like…what we'll do
there…what we'll experience…and how we are to prepare for eternity, today. It will
radically change your view of your future and Heaven.
Christian Education is ready to offer this class...now we just need someone to step up
and lead it! Please contact Elder Darrell Ching or Christian Education Director
Kathryn Tingley for more information or if interested.
