 What's Happening at Prince of Peace...

GIVE ALOHA IN SEPTEMBER, 2017

Foodland and Western Union will partner with various nonprofits on Oahu in their annual "Give Aloha" drive. The two corporations will "match" contributions from Prince of Peace. Last year POP netted over $2800 which went to our General fund and helped finance our ministries with Wounded Warriors, Youth Outreach, HUGS, Hui Ho'omalu, ministries for Hospice Hawaii and girls rescued from sex trafficking on Oahu, and much more. POP thanks God for the generosity of Foodland and Western Union and their "paying it forward" to make Hawaii a better place to live...

The Parish Council has designated our July/August "Noisy Offering"to Youth Outreach to coincide with our God's Work, Our Hands project for this year.

PASTOR JP SABBITHI WILL BE AT POP ON JULY 9...

Pastor JP Sabbithi, the Director of Counseling Services at Hospice Hawaii, will be the guest pastor at Prince of Peace on July 9 while Pastor and Marilyn Hamada are on the Mainland from June 25 to July 13. Pr. Sabbithi's family has been a prominent Lutheran family in India after his grandfather was educated by a Lutheran missionary. Although from a "lower caste" community his grandfather was often consulted by the elders of the village because of his education. His grandfather's influence enabled others to get an education. Pr. Sabbithi was featured in the Pacifica Synod Assembly in May and gave his testimony of his faith journey to the delegates in San Diego. Pr. Sabbithi was recently place on the Synod clergy roster after several years as a member of the United Churches of Christ in Hawaii.

PASTOR DALE BURKE WILL PREACH ON JULY 2...

Pastor Dale Burke, recently retired Chaplain at Hawaii Pacific University and former pastor of Christ Lutheran, Mililani, will be preaching on Sunday, July 2. Besides serving as Chaplain at HPU, Pr. Burke has been very active with Special Olympics and has even "braved" heights by participating in scaling a high-rise hotel in Waikiki to raise funds for special needs young people.

BAKE SALE!... Burn the Mortgage but Not the Cookies... 

The Task Force on Debt Reduction hosted a Bake Sale in January to reduce the balance of the mortgage that Prince of Peace has with the ELCA's Mission Investment Fund. When Prince of Peace purchased the property at Eaton Square, the congregation asked the Mission Investment Fund to underwrite a loan of around $500,000. At the end of December 2016, the balance remaining was about $85,000. Because the original pledge period has elapsed, the congregation has elected to continue to request "free-will" gifts to reduce the debt and friends of Prince of Peace have continued to help.
     Pictured are Karen Foissotte and Paul Larish encouraging members of POP to help "Burn the Mortgage but Not the Cookies" in a Bake Sale in January. The sale raised about $2500 to help with paying off our loan balance. Last year, the Task Force held a Rummage Sale which raised about $800. So, slowly but surely, POP is working to get out of debt.
