As we face difficult economic times caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, we want to continue to serve our homeless and working poor populations. However, we also understand that we need to modify how we distribute goods through our Church on the Beach Mobile ministry. We don’t want to gather large crowds and we want to minimize shared contact. Look for the Kauai Bible Church truck.
CHURCH ON THE BEACH (COTB) is a once a month outreach in which Kauai Bible Church serves and gives back to the community. It exists to serve the homeless and working poor of our island. COTB began in July, 2009 and functioned the same way for almost nine years. We would close down our regular church services on the third Sunday of each month and do church outdoors on the west side. We would provide a large festival environment with a worship service, a short teaching from the Bible, and a time to pray for people's needs. We would also have booths to provide food, clothing, hygiene kits, a hot lunch, prize giveaways, and more to all of the attendees.
In 2019, we made changes to how COTB functions while maintaining our heart and vision for the poor. Each month our COTB Mobile Food Truck stops at several sites on the west side to distribute food, hygiene kits, and other necessities.This outreach is still offered on the third Sunday of each month but no longer requires us to close our church building every month. In December, we close down our regular church services on the third Sunday and provide the full COTB production at a beach on the west side including Christmas gifts for all the keiki. Our most common locations for Church on the Beach are Salt Pond Beach Park in Hanapepe or Lucy Wright Park in Waimea. Check our website and church for updated locations each month.
