"Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth." -2 Timothy 2:15
Conformity to the image of Christ demands the renewal of the mind by the Word of God (Romans 12:2). In other words, there is an essential educational element to the Christian life. To tackle this, we have put the "School" back in Sunday school and even have a night class occasionally.
We understand what it's like to work, have children, and balance all of the responsibilities of life that can make committing to an indefinite, never-ending class a bit of a challenge. To assist with this, we offer various courses that rotate each quarter (12 weeks) of the year on a variety of subjects with the goal of engaging and equipping you for the work of the ministry as a functioning member of the body of Christ. Some of these courses have light assignments, reading materials, memory work, presentations, and yes, even a few tests. We think you'll really enjoy it and find that your growth is amplified with the extra effort.
Currently we are offering the following courses on Sunday morning at 9:00AM:
"Relationships God’s Way" with Pastor Bill Staton: Walking through “This Momentary Marriage” by John Piper, this is a wonderful opportunity to look past our plans and glimpse into God's design. This class is for anyone, married or single, who has an interest in God's design for marriage.
Explore The Bible with Wes Higuchi (Deacon). This class will examine the New Testament Gospel of Mark over 12 weeks. It will be interactive in format and insightful in content. By the end, may we all collectively say with the Roman Centurion: “Truly this man was the Son of God.” Start reading and come join us.
NEW: KBC Foundations with Pastor Randy: What does every member or potential member need to know at KBC? This class is aimed at answering that question BEFORE you join. In this series you will get a brief overview of the History of KBC, what it means to be a part of the Southern Baptist Convention, an introduction to the doctrines of our church as expressed in the Baptist Faith & Message, and discuss various elements of the church covenant. This is a great chance to ask questions about various aspects of life in the body. This course is part of the new member orientation at Kahului Baptist Church and must be completed prior to joining the church. For those who are already members and maybe never went through an orientation with Pastor Randy or think a refresher would be profitable, you may also find great value in this course as well. It will be run in an ongoing cyclical basis and you can jump in at anytime. Hope to see you there.
Children's Choir & Catechism with Mike Hennegan & Kelly McCready (4yrs. & up): This is an opportunity to teach children through song and instruction. We shouldn't underestimate the cumulative value of sowing God's truth into our children through various forms. This class has the goal of integrating and valuing our children in the larger life of the congregation as they periodically lead the church in corporate worship on a Sunday morning. In addition, it provides families a platform for instruction and family worship throughout the week via a catechism that all can benefit from. We welcome children 4 years old - high school into this class.
Beginning in June we will offer the following courses on Sunday morning at 9:00AM:
Explore The Bible with Wes Higuchi (Deacon). This class will examine the New Testament books of 1 & 2 Timothy & Titus over 12 weeks. It will be interactive in format and insightful in content.
Spiritual Disciplines with Jim Wellsand: Ever read the bible and feel confused, don’t understand, and then give up shortly into it? Ever start a reading plan and never begin? Why does prayer feel so difficult if it’s supposed to be so natural? Is it because we are very unspiritual? And what about meditation? Is that something monks and new age people do? Or is there a biblical form of meditation? If that resonates with you, then this is a potentially life changing course. In the past, we have had people take it twice, and still want to take it again. Join us and see how exciting and life-changing God’s word is!
