Worship services take place at 8:30am and 10:00am every Sunday.
Why would anyone want to connect to a church? Because the local church, when it’s done right, is the hope of the world! The local church, when it is done right is an ‘ohana (family) where the helpless, hopeless, and disheartened can find help, hope and heart to take one more step and take on one more day. When it is done right, the local church is a community that helps each other when we feel frustrated, hurt, confused and depressed. When it is done right, the local church is a place where people find love, acceptance, guidance, encouragement and forgiveness. Come make an authentic connection with our ‘ohana! Get connected! We are committed to doing life together as we learn to know and love God better day by day!

OUR CURRENT MESSAGE SERIES
We offer two worship experiences every Sunday morning at 8:30 and 10:00.
While Pastor Greg‘s messages are the same at both of these services, the music ministry at each service is different. We are led by ukuleles at 8:30 and by piano and split track videos at the second service.
Pastor Greg‘s messages are typically 30-35 minutes in length and include a lot of humor. He will often break out into a song or a dramatic presentation in the middle of his message. Boredom Factor? ZERO.
The congregation dresses in typical, casual, Hawaiian style and the walls of the sanctuary are lined with sliding doors that are open every week to let in the wonderful, fresh breezes of Waikoloa and to symbolize our open, greeting and Aloha Spirit to the community. The Keiki Choir sings at the 10:00 service each week and our services often include other special music and/or hula presentations. Children’s Church is only available at the 10:00 service at this time.

Or To Sign Up For, An Aloha Group
Aloha Groups are patterned after the model set before us by the first New Testament Church in Jerusalem, way back in 33 A.D. A snapshot insight to how they “did church” is given to us in Acts 2:1-6. Essentially, Aloha Groups are about “doing life together” with 6-12 other people. Once a week, for 1-2 hours, Aloha Groups of 6-12 people meet in someone‘s home for food, fellowship, friendship, prayer and Bible Study, just like the Acts 2 church did. Let us know if you want to get connected.
Outreach and Missions
We have many opportunities to get involved in both local outreach and world–wide missions. We partner with YWAM, World Vision and Samaritan’s Purse and also reach out to the local homeless and hungry on Big Island.
We regularly offer “pot luck” fellowship meals, movie nights and other special events to make sure our church ‘ohana continue to stay connected with each other. It’s a great way to make new friendships and strengthen existing ones.
Sunday mornings are a fun place for the Keiki at Waikoloa Community Church. Many of them participate in our Keiki Choir. The Keiki Choir sings for God and the congregation most weeks at our 10:00 Worship Experience. Their performance is always one of the most looked forward to elements each week. After Pastors Greg and Keoni lead us in our opening contemporary worship song, keiki are released to go to Children’s Church, where they have age appropriate songs, crafts and Bible lessons which utilize video teaching elements.
Children are always welcome to stay in the main worship service with their parents as well. Special fellowship outings and events happen throughout the year for our keiki too. Be sure to check our Events Page frequently to make sure you don’t miss out on these family fun times.
Our Junior and Senior High School students have their own worship and Sunday School program as well. Led by our Youth Pastor Keoni, they leave the adult service with the keiki. Of course, youth are also always welcome to stay and hear Pastor Greg’s message in the adult service if they prefer.
Monthly Youth Night
Aunty Lorna Saito provides dinner and leads special children and youth activities typically on the last Saturday of each month. These awesome events happen at 7:00pm in the Fellowship Hall of Waikoloa Community Church and kids and youth of all ages are welcome to attend.
