Come ZUMBA with Rodney
Let's move our bodies and sweat off those extra pounds! You can Zumba every Sunday from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm. Go to Recreation Ministry for more information.
Our church strives to honor Jesus in everything we do and say. We welcome everyone to worship with us Sundays at 9 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.

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.”
