Sunday Morning Bible Study Groups

Yes, you can read and study the Bible alone, but most “Bible Study” examples found in the New Testament are groups who met together in homes or other places.  Throughout Church history, the role of groups has been vital.  It is the place where community is established and where deep truths are taught.  It has been called Sunday School, Small Groups, Home Groups, Bible Study Groups, and Cell Groups, but they are all forms of groups creating community and fellowship and learning.  Join a group for Bible Study this Sunday.
 
There are a variety of excellent classes to choose from in deepening your walk with the Lord.  Pick up a brochure at the entrance of the church sanctuary.  There’s something for everyone… from babies, kids, teens, college and senior citizens.
 
Bible Study Groups are held for an hour, every Sunday from 10:45 am to 11:45 am.  We hope to see you there!

CONNECTING THE DOTS
Our goal is to help families connect the dots! Parents are the primary caretaker of a child’s faith. We want to come alongside parents as they weave faith conversations into everyday, ordinary moments throughout the week. UABC has incredible Bible study group leaders for kids–leaders who love and lead kids to know God better–but, beyond church ministry programming, we want to equip and empower families to create an atmosphere of wonder for God in their homes. If you are not currently receiving our weekly Connecting The Dots At Home email and would like to, please contact Dani Beth and she will put you on the mailing list!

Children’s Ministry

Kids are a valued part of our church family! We believe the church is a place where kids are always welcome and can lead. As a multi-generational congregation, children are provided many opportunities to learn and serve alongside different age groups during the worship service, weekday ministry opportunities, and special events. 
 
We take your child’s safety very seriously. Before serving any child, children’s ministry volunteers must pass a criminal background check. Each kids’ group is led by at minimum of 2 adults at all times.
 
The kids’ ministry team is a trained group of adults who are passionate about the spiritual formation of children. We seek to encourage kids to identify their oikos, empower them to engage their oikos, and equip them to talk about who God is and who He has called them to be. Children are encouraged to be curious about God’s Story as they engage in hands-on missions education classes, Sunday School, Awana Club, weekday Bible studies, and special events.

UABC is a multi-cultural, multi-generational church located less than a mile from the University of Hawai’i. Over 1,700 international students and scholars from over 200 countries have come to study at U.H. There are many physical and relational needs international students have upon arriving to a new place. As a church body, we want to make these students feel welcomed, provide opportunities for relationships, and invite them to join us in exploring God’s Story.
