Hawaii Disaster Relief

The tragic wildfires in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii have dominated our headlines, depicting the utter devastation of property and exacting a heavy toll of human lives. The probability of many, many more deaths to be confirmed in coming days is heartbreaking. Hope Force International, one of our mission partners, is uniquely positioned and equipped to bring compassionate care to those in need. In coordination YWAM Ships, an organization headquartered in Kona, Hawaii, they are providing desperately needed relief goods working to develop recovery and rebuilding initiatives. To date, they’ve been ferrying supplies to Maui by forming a “Flotilla of Mercy," a statewide effort wherein yachts are being deployed to deliver a list of specific supplies. The selection of the items was guided by the preferences of the local community, fostering a spirit of unity and consideration.

Wonder of Worship Volunteers


Sundays in September and October, 8:30 and 11 a.m.
Wonder of Worship is a time for our PreK-4s and Kindergartners to be excused from the worship service to learn more about God and worship. Our WOW classes are in need of adult leaders for the fall. Please take a look at our opportunities to serve our little ones.
