Once a Month Church, Haleiwa, Oahu, HI

Once A Month Church  7/29/2012

Brother Dennis praying for the keiki (children) at Once a Month Church on Oahu.  With approximately 750 in attendance, Haleiwa Beach Park is in it's usual buzz every fourth Sunday of the month. 

Sadly, founder of OAMC, Pastor Ron Valenciana passed away during the event at his home about a mile away.  His short battle with cancer ended his time with us, but left a legacy in helping those in need.  Fellow members of OAMC have announced that there will be another "service" on August 26.  Future plans for the monthly gathering are still being discussed.

On the island of Kauai, Church on the Beach is an offspring of Pastor Ron's vision.  Kauai Bible Church in Omao closes it's doors every third Sunday to bring the gospel message to the people at Salt Pond Beach Park.  Pastor Merv Walker's "fatherly" leadership encourages his members to be doers of the word and not merely hearers by transforming the park to a place of worship.

Read the book of James and be blessed by the word of God.
