The month of May has had many milestones for our church and our church family — deacon ordinations, Senior/college recognition, Senior Adult Sunday, working on implementing the new service times, the end of AWANA, and let's not forget the busy month the preschool had. I want to first congratulate all our Senior and college graduates on their big accomplishment; and know we will continue to pray for you as you start your new journeys. A big congratulations to our new deacons — Barry Henderson, Ben Lairson, Ben Pinner, and John Allen — who are coming on board to serve here at MBC. We are excited to see how God uses these men of God in our church. The staff is also working hard to ensure that the implementation of the new service times goes smoothly. This new chapter in the life of our church is a delightful time and we look forward to what the Lord has in store. AWANA's last day was on May 29th and everyone had a great time celebrating the hard work the children put forth in learning their verses. Thank you to all the teachers for your service to these children.
The month of June is going to be no different. I will start a new sermon series through the summer on the Book of John. VBS is right around the corner where children that do not know Christ will be in our midst. Pray for the volunteers as seeds are planted in the hearts of these young children and pray for their families as well. Continue to pray for our upcoming mission trip to the Philippines in November. The planning process will begin this month with a meeting on June 5th for anyone interested in going. Mililani Baptist Church is very grateful to all those that serve wholeheartedly in our church for the Lord.
