So what should you expect if you come to worship with us? First of all we worship on Saturdays, which we refer to as the Sabbath. We are located in Lahaina, off Wainee Street. If our parking lot is full, feel free to pull into the grass area at the far end of the church property.
We have education classes that we call Sabbath School that start at 9:30AM. There are classes for all ages. When you come you will be given a bulletin by one of our greeters, and if you need help finding just the right Sabbath School class for you or your children they will lead you in the right direction. Adult Sabbath School is held in the main sanctuary and usually includes a song service and bible study. Behind the main sanctuary is the multipurpose room, where you can find a class for ages 0-13. There is a youth group for ages 14-18 that meets outside of the multipurpose room. Sabbath School is from 9:30 - 10:45 each week. There is a 15 minute break between Sabbath School and the church service. You will find people talking and finding a place to sit in the sanctuary. A mission story is often shared during this time.
The church service starts at 11:00 and is usually over around 12:30. You will find a variety of music and worship experiences. We are a diverse, multi-generational church and our worship service reflects that. Some weeks we will be singing traditional hymns, while others you will hear contemporary worship music. Following our opening song is our offering and a blessing. There is always a special story just for children and sometimes a special music. The bulk of the service is the sermon time which usually lasts about 20-25 minutes. We close with a worship song and prayer. Many people spend time talking outside following the service, and all are welcome to attend our potluck which we have every week except for the first Saturday of the month.

The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a mainstream Protestant church with approximately 19 million members worldwide, including more than one million members in North America. The Seventh-day Adventist Church seeks to enhance quality of life for people everywhere and to let people know that Jesus is coming again soon.
Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father's will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone.
When He returned to heaven following the resurrection, Jesus left the Holy Spirit to serve as our Comforter and Counselor. He promised to return to earth a second time to complete His plan of salvation and take His people to heaven. Adventists are among the believers who look forward to that day.
Adventists believe that God is concerned with the quality of human life, and that everything—the way we live, eat, speak, think, treat each other, and care for the world around us—is part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.
