    Aloha KUMC! In his leer

    to the Philippians, the

    Apostle Paul writes:

    I thank my God every me

    I remember you. In all my

    prayers for all of you, I

    always pray with

    joy because of your

    partnership in the gospel

    from the first day unl

    now, being confident of

    this, that he who began a

    good work in you will carry it on to compleon unl

    the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:3-6).

    In this my final KKP arcle I too want to say thank

    you. Im so grateful for the ways that you have

    embraced me and my family. Im so grateful for

    your love and support. Im so grateful for your

    partnership in the gospel.

    Thank you fellow KUMC staff for all that you do.

    Thank you Church Council leaders for your me and


    Thank you ministry team chairs and ministry team


    Thank you members of SPRC, Trustees, and Finance.

    Thank you Sunday school teachers and children

    ministry volunteers.

    Thank you preschool staff, board members and


    Thank you small group leaders, hosts and members.

    Thank you choir and praise team.

    Thank you welcoming team.

    Thank you liturgists, acolytes, and coffee stewards.

    Thank you ushers, counters, and sanctuary


    Thank you to all of you who serve our local

    community through IHS, Family Promise, Summer

    Fest, Beacon of Hope House, etc.

    Thank you to all of you who pray and provide

    congregaonal care for those in need.

    Thank you to all of you who support our partnership

    and outreach in India.

    Thank you to all of you who support our church


    Thank you to all of you who serve in lile ways that

    go unnoced but are seen by God.

    Thank you to all of you who play your unique part in

    helping us accomplish our mission of making

    disciples of Jesus Christ from all generaons.

    Thank you!

    As the Apostle Paul expressed, Im not only grateful

    for you but also confident of what God can and will

    do in you. God began the good work that is going on

    in KUMC, and God will carry it forward. In fact, God

    has more in store for KUMC than we can even

    imagine. As Paul writes in Ephesians 3:20-21:

    Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more

    than all we ask or imagine, according to his

    power that is at work within us, to him be glory in

    the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all

    generaons, for ever and ever! Amen.

    What can you imagine happening through KUMC?

    God can do even more! Our five years together have

    been just one chapter in the story that God is

    wring here. Its a great story, an amazing story, and

    I cant wait to hear about what happens next.

    Im so grateful for our partnership and so hopeful

    for our future.

    With deep love and gratude,

    Pastor Tim
