Do you want to know God better and become who He’s created you to be?
Here are some places to start:
~ Aloha Groups: This is how we “DO LIFE TOGETHER.” Aloha Groups are the friends and ‘ohana (family) you laugh, grow, and serve with. Each Aloha Group at WCC is different, yet all are focused on growing better together! Let us help you find an Aloha Group that’s right for you. For more info about Aloha Groups, contact Annette at WaikoloaCC@gmail.com.
~ Serve With Us: You can make a big difference in someone’s life by serving on one of our Strategic Service Teams. To get started, select an area of ministry where you’d like to serve and contact the church by emailing WaikoloaCC@gmail.com.
~ Explore Your Purpose: Each of us has a unique purpose that is solely ours to fulfill. Uncover yours by participating in one of our Exploration Seminars. More information coming soon.
* FOR YOUR FAMILY
We believe strong families start with a solid foundation. We endeavor to partner with parents to raise the next generation of fully devoted followers of Christ.
~ Aloha Riders Kids Ministry: While you’re in church, your kids get to enjoy an experience designed just for them!
Our Dolphin, Whale, and Surf Riders meet in our Multi-Purpose Building at 9:30am each Sunday for a one-room Kids Church for ages 3 (potty trained) through 5th grade.
Our Honu Riders Nursery is for toddlers and 2s. The Little Honu Riders Room in the Worship Center is for parents who wish to see and hear the service while caring for a young child.
~ Point Break Student Ministry: We would LOVE to offer a quality youth program for 6th-12th graders as well! We need some initial volunteers to help make that happen and some interested youth to participate. Let us know of any interest and we’ll make it happen as soon as possible.

* MESSAGE NOTES
~ IT TAKES A VILLAGE ~ Week 2 ~ Where Everybody Knows Your Name ~
Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got.
Taking a break from all of your worries sure would help a lot.
Wouldn’t you like to get away?
Sometimes you want to go, where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came.
You want to be where you can see, our troubles are all the same.
You want to go where everybody knows your name.
Resist [the devil], strong in your faith, because you know that your brothers and sisters throughout the world are enduring the same kinds of suffering. ~ 1 Peter 5:9
No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it. ~ 1 Corinthians 10:13
Since we are all one body in Christ, we belong to each other, and each of us needs all the others. ~ Romans 12:5
Real life change always takes place in the context of small-group relationships.
~ TWO KEY THOUGHTS ABOUT ENGAGING IN OUR VILLAGE ~
1) God calls every person on earth to be a CHRIST FOLLOWER!
The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. ~ 2 Peter 3:9
2) A Christian without a church family is a CONTRADICTION.
Now here is what I am trying to say: All of you together are the one body of Christ, and each one of you is a separate and necessary part of it. ~ 1 Corinthians 12:27
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality. ~ Romans 12:10-13
~ FOUR REASONS TO JOIN THE VILLAGE ~
1) A Spiritual Reason: Christ is Committed to the local church, we should be too.
. . . Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her. ~ Ephesians 5:25b
2) A Cultural Reason: It is an antidote to our noncommittal society.
The difference between “attendees” and “members” can be summed up in one word: COMMITMENT.
3) A Practical Reason: It defines who can be counted on.
4) A Personal Reason: It produces spiritual growth.
~ FIVE REASONS WE MIGHT NOT CHOOSE TO BELONG ~
1) I’M UNINFORMED
2) I’M SHY
3) I’M AFRAID
4) I’VE BEEN HURT BEFORE
5) I’M TOO BUSY
