ACTIVITIES


PLAYGROUP NEWS

Playgroup is in full swing again. We have seven returning families from last year along with two new families attending. With nine two year olds, seven babies plus mommies and daddies it makes for a very active playroom every Thursday and Friday.

We were lucky to have Mary Ann Nemoto talk with the families the first day for our orientation. She also provided the supplies to make a color wheel activity for both adults and children to work together on.  

This month we have talked about the Bible, God's Creation and made yummy animal cookies for Noah's Ark.  Thank you Debbie Glenn for helping with this activity!!

Support Group

Na Anela is a support group that provides a positive journey for those experiencing (or have experienced) life-threatening illnesses through communication (sharing/feedback), information and prayer, within a confidential, non-threatening Christian environment.

Monthly meetings are held in Room 3 on the fourth Saturday of each month, except for the month of December.

1030-1130:  guest speaker (as available)
1130-1230:  light, healthy refreshments and socializing

Guest speakers throughout the years have kept our group well informed on health and medical issues, healing techniques and strategies, medication and pain management, massage, nutrition, diet, exercise, healthy cooking, music for strengthening the immune system, etc.

All are welcome to attend our monthly meetings.  Please call Kailua Christian Church at 261-0125 if you are interested in attending.

Overcomers

Overcomers is a group that meets for one hour beginning at 9:00 a.m. on the fourth Tuesday of every month (except during the summer) and is a support group for those whose loved one that has died, whether a spouse or child, etc.  Persons are at different stages of grieving and healing, but each has experienced the pain of loss and the journey of healing.  Typically we read and discuss a short passage of scripture, perhaps a psalm, and then share how we are doing with one another.  Conversation and discussion is never forced.  There is much wisdom, experience and compassion from the people in this group.  It is facilitated by the pastor and all are welcome.


Wednesday Morning Bible Class (Helping Hands)

Wednesday Morning Bible Class meets every week on Wednesday morning from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. winter and summer vacations are observed (we don’t meet at those times).  This is a wonderful opportunity for fellowship, which is just as important as the actual Bible study itself.  Break and refreshments at 10:00 a.m. are important parts of our time together, as well as opening and closing prayer.  There is a custom of ending each semester with an off-site group luncheon, enjoyed by all.  The pastor leads the weekly Bible study, which traditionally is a particular book of the Bible.  The study is “sharing based” where the movement of the Spirit in those participating is encouraged as we listen to and learn from one another.  All are welcome.
