At Kalihi Union Church we value the truth of the Bible. During the 9 o’clock hour, we have Sunday School classes where people can learn about different topics from a biblical perspective. This is not only a time for learning, but also for building relationships with the people in the class. They will learn together and pray for each other. Don’t worry if you’re a parent with a baby, we also have a nursery open during this time.

Come learn what it means to reflect the heart of God in our daily lives! Explore our various growing experiences below!

An In-Depth Look at the Trinity

This class will look in-depth at the Trinity to discuss the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in relational ways.

Let’s begin with some simple questions and brief answers. Why is God love? Because God is a Trinity. Why can we be saved? Because God is a Trinity. How are we able to live the Christian life?

For some people, though, the Trinity seems irrational or even incomprehensible. As we shall see, the Trinity is not irrational for it is not a puzzle, and neither are the divine Persons (the Trinity) incomprehensible for they are not an enigma. While some may say “leave such discussions to theologians,” that’s not what the Scriptures contend. The Scriptures declare most invitingly,
