Trinity Sunday is June 7:
Support Camp Mokuleʻia

Aloha from Camp Mokule`ia!

For 73 years, our sanctuary on O’ahu’s north shore has been a place of rest, recreation, and renewal for thousands of children, youth, and adults. It is a thin place ­– where access to the divine is more easily found through God’s creation in sand, wind, and waves.

We entered this year with much to celebrate. Camper participation was up 300%, and program registrations were running ahead of 2019 ­– laying the groundwork for this year’s summer youth participants to experience God’s love in real and lasting ways. Unfortunately, the pandemic has required us all to put plans on hold or change them altogether. For Camp Mokuleʻia, adapting to social distancing requirements means canceling all on-site programming for the rest of the year.

We have discerned God’s call to show God’s love in a new and different way, and we need your help.

We have partnered with Family Promise of Hawaiʻi whose mission is to help homeless and low-income families in Hawaiʻi achieve sustainable independence by mobilizing existing community resources and support. From July 1 – December 31 (2020), Camp Mokuleʻia will provide housing and meals for families in need. With your help, Camp Mokuleʻia will be a “thin place” for these families to be embraced and strengthened by God’s abundance.

Trinity Sunday (June 7) is traditionally the Sunday the Episcopal Diocese in Hawaiʻi sets aside to celebrate and support the ministry of Camp Mokuleʻia.  As you consider what sheltering in our homes has meant for your lives, we invite you to give to support this ministry. Your donation will provide the vital financial support needed to safely prepare for the future reopening of camp programs when health guidelines allow.

We are grateful to have the support of donors who are offering matching gifts. Your donation of $50 or more will be matched up to $10,000 and help us sustain and grow this valuable work, ensuring we survive the current economic challenges brought on by the pandemic and thrive as we live in new ways of serving Christ and one another.
Blessings,

Darrell Whitaker
