"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.
For the Fall (Sept. - Nov.) we are offering the following courses on Sunday morning at 9:00AM:
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 finish? 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 only 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!
Explore The Bible with Wes Higuchi (Deacon): This class will examine the New Testament book of Ephesians over 12 weeks. This letter from Paul, the apostle, is deeply theological, breathtakingly practical, and concise! It will be interactive in format and insightful in content. Check it out!
Core Seminar with Pastor Bill Staton: Brand new course offering. Class will begin September 8th upon Pastor Bill’s return. Details coming soon! Stay tuned.
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 or even if it’s been a while. 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, and discuss various elements of the church covenant. 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 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.
Feel free to drop-in on any course and you will be encouraged and sharpened to be more like Christ.
