Aloha, Grandparents! Your grandchild invites you to a special program in celebration of GRANDPARENTS DAY at Kawaiahaʻo Church at 9:00a.m. on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13. Please plan to join us.


A 10-week journey of spiritual growth and discovery begins SEPTEMBER 6, 2015, at 10:30am in Pauahi Conference Room. You will know why you believe in Jesus, where important scriptures are and how to share your faith. Sign up with Ruby Donlin or Ka'iulani Hess following the service in front of the church.


Vision Crafting meeting was held July 11, 2015, as a follow-up to October 2014. It allowed our membership to share where they believe God is leading Kawaiaha'o Church and what our main priorities should be over the next 3 to 5 years. Please plan to attend the next Vision Implementation Meeting on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 8:00a.m. to Noon in the KAIONA ROOM at Kawaiahaʻo Plaza to share your thoughts with fellow members.

Scholarships are available.


We will again be using our lawn to honor our Lord's birth from DECEMBER 5 to 20. Anyone interested in putting on a Live Nativity Scene with music and/or acting, please call 469-3061 to secure a date.

Welcome from the Kahu

Our church strives to honor Jesus in everything we do and say. We welcome everyone to worship with us Sundays at 9:00 AM.

The majority of the service is in English. Because of our strong roots in the Hawaiian culture, we sing Hawaiian songs and read the scriptures in Hawaiian and English. We welcome you to our ‘ohana (family) where the love of Jesus Christ is alive.

— Kahu Curt Pa‘alua Kekuna

Frequently Asked Question

Are your services in English or Hawaiian?

About Kawaiaha‘o Church

“On July 21, 1842, 5,000 worshippers, led by Kamehameha III, gathered to dedicate this “Great Stone Church.” It became known as the “Westminster Abbey of the Pacific,” and during the days of the monarchy, it was called “The Church of the Ali‘i.” Today, it is often referred to as “The State Church of Hawai‘i.”
