"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:
Church Body Building with Pastor Jim Wellsand: This class isn't about hungry muscular people walking around in tiny underwear. It's far more rewarding. It's an overview of the "One-another" passages of Scripture. It will be an interactive class with the goal of practical application of the Scriptures and building up the body of Christ. Come get pumped up!
"What Did You Expect" with Pastor Bill Staton: Walking through the book by Paul Tripp, this is a wonderful opportunity to look past our plans and glimpse into God's design. We'll bust the myths of Hollywood and seek to embrace the promises of what holiness would look like in our marriages, homes, and hearts. 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 books of Galatians and James over 12 weeks. It will be interactive in format and insightful in content. These 2 books are often pitted against one another for the supposed tension of justification by faith alone, or faith + works. By the end of the course you will see how the Scriptures present a unified view of salvation through faith in Christ alone that results in a transformed life devoted to good works for the glory of God. Start reading and come join us.
Waiehu Church Plant: Doctrine & Practice with Church Planters Jay Haynes & Rocky Komatsu: This class will discuss the beliefs and practices that will drive and shape the Waiehu Church Plant in 2019. If you're interested in learning more about the church plant, considering joining the core team, or just want to learn how to be a more faithful and active member of your own church, we invite you to join this excellent course.
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 will 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 December the following courses will be offered in the new quarter:
Church Body Building with Pastor Jim Wellsand. For those who missed it, this will be the 2nd offering of this course, we encourage you to check it out! See the description above for more information.
Explore The Bible with Wes Higuchi (Deacon): Explore the roots of the gospel as the story of Abraham’s descendants unfolds. Following Jacob’s story provides an opportunity to consider your own. Christ came into the world to make transformation and redemption available to all who repent and believe. As you study Genesis 25–50, may God teach you why the gospel is such good news!
Children's Choir & Catechism with Mike Hennegan & Kelly McCready (4yrs. & up): We just had our first keiki-choir led worship time on a Sunday morning. It went incredible and we were ALL blessed to have the “least of these” participating in such an active way as they led the assembly in worship. We’d be glad to have you 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. 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.
Feel free to drop-in on any course and you will be encouraged and sharpened to be more like Christ.
