This lovely 106-year-old church offers Sunday services with traditional Hawaiian hymns. The stained glass windows are gorgeous, and the bell is over 170 years old. Truly one of a kind experience.

We were exploring the Hanalei area when we discovered this community treasure. A beautiful little church with a vast history to match it's surroundings. This part of the island had just survived a rather intense flooding event and was in the process of rebuilding.
