My wife decided to attend the morning contemporary service. This was a praise worship service, and it could not have been better. It was spirit filled. And the sermon was very much on topic for us. The ONLY reason I give it a 4 is because I felt hat the members could have reached out to the guests a bit more. We only had one regular introduce himself after the service. Not that they were snobs, they were just busy. But will attend here again on the next trip!

Well, it depends where you are coming from, but I find it so sad that the Hawaiians were "missioned" out of their belief system. Church is beautiful but looks incongruous there. However, the spirits have not been quashed and can be felt on this Island like no other.

We love this church. Very welcoming friendly people. Wonderful Christmas and Easter church service. A great place for visitors to be able to drop in and feel right at home.

a model of the Brig Thaddeus plus reproductions of historic Boston news articles and missionary letters bring to life the story of 1820s travel from Boston to Hawaii

Small little church with a lot of history. There are some interesting displays and we found it worth the short amount of time.
