My husband has been attending this church for years when he would come to the island (before we were a couple). Reverend Paul married us two years ago. The local congregation is so friendly to the visitors. Two ladies make leis for everyone every Sunday. The Tongan choir featured in the middle of the service is fabulous. I am not... More

We were visitors on the island of Kauai and went to Sunday services. We were warmly greeted by the members and enjoyed the experience. They have services every Sunday in various languages. Would certainly go again.

Enjoyed attending this wonderful church, Pastor was great as was the congregation. It was such a warm inviting experience and we loved the opportunity to worship with Pastor Paul. The fresh flower lei was a special treat. Our family of nine felt right at home. We met lovely people from all over the country as well as Australia and Canada.... More

Lovely church and pastor with a true “Aloha” spirit. We attend the church service on June 1, 2014 and really enjoyed it! We were greeted at the doors with friendship and a flower lei. The message was spot on and we enjoyed the singing. Pastor Paul David Kalani Tangonan coordinated and conducted our wedding vow renewal service. Everything was beautiful... More

This is a wonderful church on the edge of Lahaina Town, and I enjoyed the candle light service at Christmas. Very nice. Lots of singing and the people are very friendly. Enjoy this wonderful UM church.

We like to attend church both at home and on vacation, and we're pleasantly surprised to see a review in trip advisor. The church was nearly full with several visitors adding to the attendance from all over the US and Canada. Delightful meaningful service with a strong Hawaiian flavour.

We had a wonderful worship experience here. We happened to be celebrating my birthday and our 25th anniversary. The congregation is very welcoming to visitors. We were greeted with hand-made leis and made to feel right at home. The Word was good and we could feel the love and anointing on the Pastor.

This Church has given space to our Synagogue. They have very kindly allowed our small congregation to use their Social Hall for our services. What a kind, compassionate act! And this Church is worth a visit: the Sanctuary is just beautiful.

One of the highlights of our trip. I was in tears throughout the service. Warm wonderful people, beautiful church, pastor had an excellent sermon and a beautiful singing voice. He sang brother iz and bob marley with his uke to begin the service. My musician teenage son was thrilled. Very casual as far as dress. So glad we attended and... More

A historic church on Front St across from the ocean. This is a beautiful church dating back to the eighteen hundreds. The pastor is genuine and interesting and plays several instruments, including the bagpipes. All visitors get fresh flower leis and the ukulele band plays Hawaii Aloha at the end of the service. We will go back as often as... More
