Saturday, October 27- An ATIP TRAINING will be offered to Wesley and community members for free on 9am-noon.
ATIP (Acute Traumatic Incident Processing) training will teach how to support someone, even a stranger, who has just witnessed a traumatic event (a crime, car accident, natural disaster, etc). We will learn to share and guide witnesses of traumatic events through the ATIP protocol. This intervention decreases the disturbance of the event, and increase positive coping skills. Contact Vanessa Tom at the church office, 737-3444, to RVSP in order to ensure each attendee gets their own ATIP resources.
We are a tapestry of cultures, traditions, generations, perspectives and colorful faces that reflect the beauty and richness of our island community. Together we seek to discover and celebrate our unity in God's inclusive and all-encompassing love. As the Beloved Community we embrace God's divine presence in each person, and behold divine goodness in all people, throughout nature and all creation.
Rev. Piula has been a leader in the Kahala community for over a decade. He is passionate about sharing the love of God to all people. He is passionate about social justice and living out the love of Christ in meaningful tangible ways. His interests are surfing, playing the ukulele, ecumenical outreach, and spending time with his beautiful wife Kim and their two lovely daughters Salani and Iona. Learn More
John Wesley, Methodism's founder, said, "A reading people will always be a knowing people." Our modest little Church Library provides valuable resources toward that end.
We have about a thousand books covering a wide range of topics. Among these are works of biography, autobiography, fiction, poetry, religion, Methodism, literature, Hawaiiana, self-help, inspiration, history, poetry, and more. We also have a section of wonderful children's books, as well as Bible concordances and other reference material.
Three times a year, a Browse and Borrow Book Display featuring a selection of books is held in Kimata Hall following worship. On all other Sundays, the Library, located in the Chapel/Library is open at 10:45AM for browsing and borrowing. Members and friends of WUMC, including young adults and children, are welcome to use the library, which operates on the Honor System. Borrowers may check out and return books o their own by following the steps outlined on the instruction sheets in the library.
Sponsored by the Wesley United Methodist Church, the Wesley Children’s Programs provide part time childcare and preschool for children ages 6 months to 5 years old and afterschool and seasonal care for children in kindergarten through 6th grade.

Wesley UMC continues to welcome a group of adults with developmental disabilities as full participants in the life of the church. Members of the Sunshine Friends, as they call themselves, participate in the worship service by reading scriptures, ushering, greeting, serving as acolytes, and serving communion. Members of Wesley have supported the Sunshine Friends financially as well as through their priceless gifts of prayer, love, and acceptance. Because of this important ministry, Wesley received an award in 2004 as one of the most accessible churches in the UMC Southwestern Conference. The monetary award of $500 was placed in a special account to be used for outreach and other activities that support inclusion of people with special needs in Christian community. Wesley members continue to donate to this fund and have extended their support to the John 17:21 Ministry, “That We May All Be One” an ecumenical outreach to people with disabilities that meets each month at Wesley for dinner, fellowship and worship. For more information, follow them on Facebook.
