We have had quite a number of people joining us online on Kawaiaha’o Church TV for worship every Sunday mornings during COVID, and that number has dramatically increased. We have had people from all over the world ask how they can join Kawaiaha'o Church as they continue to engage online. We didn’t always have the best response, but now we do!
Online membership is for those who want to move from spectators to participants in what we do at Kawaiaha’o Church as God continues to form us into an authentic expression of Jesus in the 21st century. It is God's desire that you connect with a church and fellowship with other believers.
For online Associate Members we will provide:
+ Online small group opportunities
+ Prayer support
+ A monthly zoom call with Kahu Makuakane or other pastoral staff
+ Access to online devotionals, newsletters and discussions to help you grow in faith
+ A member-only Facebook group for discussion and encouragement
We keep things relational here at Kawaiaha'o Church and we want to get to know you as you become an online member!
As an online Assoicate Member, we invite you to:
+ Engage in our Sunday morning live stream worship services
+ Pray for the church community, staff, and leadership
+ Participate in worship through online giving
+ Support Kawaiaha'o Church online with likes and shares on various social media platforms
If you are interested in becoming a member of our online congregation, fill out the form below and one of our deacons will be in touch with you!
We hope that as our online membership grows that we will be able to identify some leaders who can open up their homes to start home-based gatherings of people who can participate together with us online.
Of course, these home-based gatherings of online members will begin once social distancing requirements begin to loosen up. But we are excited about the possibility of what God might do with our online congregation.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at the Pastors Office; email@example.com
May the love of our Lord Jesus surround you.
Thank you for your consideration in becoming a member of our beloved Kawaiaha'o Church.
