September 2021
Dear Church Family,

My thoughts and prayers are with you as we continue to experience a high rate of COVID-19 on Oahu. September marks a year and a half of pandemic restrictions, and I know it has not been easy. Know you are never alone. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you are in need of prayer, conversation, or any other support.

September is Give Aloha, our annual Foodland fundraiser! Instructions are below. We have a number of items on our 2022 wish list, including an increased investment in our ministries for children and families. Please contribute generously as you are able.
Many blessings,
Pastor Jessica

New Upper Room Available!

The September-October issue of The Upper Room is now available in the church office. Multiple church members have shared that the daily devotionals and scripture readings have been invaluable in strengthening their walk with God. If you would like a copy, please reach out to Jay at or 622-4361. Let her know if you would like a large-print version. Alternatively, you can request a copy mailed to your home.

During the month of September, help us fundraise for our church! 
  1. Show your Maika'i card to the cashier at Foodland or Sack N Save
  2. Provide our church's code 77982 and the amount of your donation (up to $249)
  3. Review your receipt to confirm your donation to Wahiawa United Methodist Church
  4. Mail the extra copy of your receipt to Edna at church (1445 California Avenue)
The way it works is that Foodland forwards our contributions to the church with an added donation from their company's foundation. The more we give, the larger the match!
New Sanctuary Roof! Thank you to everyone who contributed to this major effort! We are especially grateful to Janis who led our fundraising campaign and Leimomi who served as Trustees lead. A huge thanks also to Mel Pascua for reviewing quotes and sharing his construction expertise. Carpentry expenses were much higher than anticipated due to the pandemic, however, we were able to cover the additional costs with a conditional grant from the California-Pacific Conference. We sincerely appreciate your continued generosity!
Parsonage Mold Restoration! August was a busy month! We removed hazardous mold from above the parsonage master bedroom and bathroom. Luckily, June's son Guyes works for Oahu Extraction. He and his team did a beautiful job on the remediation and rebuild.
