You’re Invited to MiniChurch

A big part of what we do at Hope Chapel is to grow our small groups. We call it MiniChurch. “Our MiniChurch exists for the purpose of spiritual growth, prayer & support, fellowship, exercising of spiritual gifts, and direct pastoral care.” It’s just a group of friends getting together midweek to reflect on the sermon, share prayer requests, and enjoy one another’s company.

I am blessed to be one of the shepherds. Our MiniChurch is really small, but it’s good. We like to think of it as the “Pound for Pound” MiniChurch.

We meet on Wednesdays from 6-7:30pm at the Ward Theater Starbucks. Please join us for good fellowship and good coffee, as we grow in our walk with the Lord. Contact information.

“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18:20

Heart for the House

“Heart for the House” is Hope Chapel West O’ahu’s capital fund drive. We are hoping to acquire the building that we are currently leasing and are being obedient to God’s vision for our church in our community.

The sanctuary was transformed into an elegant ballroom for the banquets that were to kickoff the campaign. I had a great time with my MiniChurch family. (It would be sweet to have it like this on every Sunday. Mmm, breakfast….)

Please pray along with us as we move forward. “Hope Chapel West O’ahu is committed to ATTRACT non-believers to Christ, to CONNECT them to their church family, to TRAIN them for life & ministry, and to SEND them to fulfill God’s calling in their lives.”

Coming Soon….

This building will soon become the new home for my church, Hope Chapel West O’ahu. Look familiar? It’s the old Sack N Save / Ashley Furniture store in the Waikele Center. It’s been vacant for awhile now. We are very blessed to have this opportunity….

My initial reaction was of slight disappointment. After all, the present location (Waikele Elementary School) is just across the street. After driving up to the site, I realize what an impressive facility it is. There is ample parking, and the sidewalks are nice and wide. There is much potential here. I hope that people will come. Hope to see you there….

HCWO Men’s Retreat….

….was held this weekend at Camp Homelani near Waialua Beach. We partnered with Hope Chapel Olomana. Our guest pastor was Roger Archer from Puyallup, WA. He was an amazing communicator and storyteller. We had very powerful sessions and testimonies. Unfortunately, it rained during our free time. Some people still went out surfing. The rest of us stayed indoors and were relegated to watching Kung-Fu Panda on DVD. Still, everyone had an amazing time….
