"KE OLA HOU" Vision Crafting

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
