Backyard Kids Club

Backyard Kids Club is our weekly outreach program at Makiki Park. Our mission is to provide a safe place for kids to experience the love of God through games, art and laughter. We believe that children who are well loved by trusted adults will empower their generation with hope in our community.

Alpha is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in an open, informal, friendly environment. The Alpha Course meets once a week for 11 weeks, with each week focusing on a different question. Each Alpha session follows the same format; we begin with a meal, followed by a video and table discussion. Everyone and every viewpoint is welcome- no background knowledge of (or belief in) Christianity is assumed. At Alpha there is no pressure, no follow-up, and no charge.

You’re invited to explore! Is there more to life than this? Is there a God? Why am I here? Where am I going? No question is out of bounds. No question is considered hostile or too simple to be considered. Next Alpha is starting in August 2018.

 

                  Food   Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. Most sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to build community and get to know each other.

                  Talk   The talks are designed to engage guests and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long, they can be given as a live talk or played as a video, all for free. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as  Who is Jesus?  and  How can I have faith?

              Discussion    Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me.

Matthew 25:35-36

 

Big Big table

We believe that God's table is not exclusive to certain groups of people, but indeed has lots of room for anyone. Big Big table is a place of healing and growth for the LGBTQ community. We are committed to authentic dialogue, listening to and learning from each other. Together, we pursue reconciliation and grow in our faith journey.
