This blog was started to show the work of Christ as we started a church in Hawaii. It has become the walk of Grace that the Lord Jesus Christ is teaching me in my intimacy with Him! I pray that the freedom that Christ is giving me is transferred to you as you read.
Since we have changed our church name, I thought it was time to change my blog post name. This is no longer gracecommunityhawaii.blogspot.com but is now shawnkpeoples.blogspot.com. If you have the other name saved, please save this one instead. Thanks for praying for us and I hope you are as excited as we are about our new identity!
I am excited to announce that we have changed our church name to "the Church at Kapolei". We believe we needed a new name that was simple and gave us a different identity than the other churches in the area. Months back, I had begun to notice a bunch of small churches with the name "grace" in them. As I began to engage community leaders about our church, they would confuse us with those churches. I brought this to our pastoral team and after a few weeks of prayer we decided on a name change. We believe this simple name will match our simple mindset for our church. If you are giving to us right now, nothing is changing yet in that area. Soon this blog name will change to another name and I will inform you of that change when it happens. Thanks for your prayers and your love. We are excited to see what God is doing.

Pray for their journey and kids. Also, we are working through the next phase which is meeting as a core group on Sunday mornings. We hope to launch this phase in November. Nick and Suzy Killin are preparing to move here in November also.
Last week a couple of the men in our group went to Hickam Airforce Base and handed out shave ice to single airmen. We met quite a few men and women doing life alone and have some big dreams to support and reach out to them. Next month we are praying through a Halloween outreach in the Hawaiian Village in Kapolei. Pray that we can pull this off.
God is teaching me tons of things. I am realizing everyday that I am not capable to do the things God wants of me and that I am to surrender myself to Him and allow the Spirit to do those th…
