Dear Church Family,
 
I hope that you are continuing to take care and stay safe. I know that even while many of our kupuna are getting vaccinated, there are still many who are experiencing the loss of loved ones, financial hardship, and pandemic fatigue.

Kyle and I would like to thank everyone who joined us online for our wedding and who gave gifts to the church in celebration of our marriage. We are excited for Kyle to join the Wahiawa UMC family.

Later this week, you will receive a letter from Finance Chair Janis Loventhal about our campaign to raise $30,000 to replace our sanctuary roof. If you are able, I hope you will give generously as an investment in our ministry. There is so much God has in store for us.

 
Looking forward,
Pastor Jessica

The Congregational Care Easter Bunnies are busily preparing another DIY kit which will include instructions to make a basket, origami bunny, and treats to fill your basket! Church Ohana, young and old, can request your kit(s) by March 15. Please contact Chuck: call 623-2437, email chuckxgan@yahoo.com, or text 722-6002. Pickup will be a drive through on Sunday, March 21, from 1-2 p.m. in the church parking lot.
Our church is launching a campaign for a new sanctuary roof! We have most of the funds saved, but still need to raise an additional $30,000. The plan is to begin construction in late spring, so we can worship under our new roof this year and for many years to come. Thank you for your support!

New Upper Room Available!

Lent is the perfect time to try on a new spiritual practice. Many of our church members the utilize the daily devotionals and scripture readings of The Upper Room as part of their everyday Christian practice. You can pick up a copy at the church office or have one mailed to you free of charge. Please contact Jay at 622-4361 or office@wahiawaumc.org for a a copy. Let her know if you would like a large-print version.
Every 4th Wednesday of the month, volunteers use our parking lot to distribute 300 food boxes to families in need. Thank you to our partners at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church for making this possible! Please spread the word to those who may be in need.
