Mission Statement

"The Avowed purpose of the Church is to worship God,  preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, and celebrate the sacraments;  to realize Christian Fellowship and unity within the Church, in the community of Kihei and the church universal;  to render loving service toward humankind;  and to strive for righteousness, justice and peace" - KCHC Constitution & By-Laws (rev2015)

Our Hawaiian Heritage

One Hundred Years ago Hawaiian Families living near the church founded Keolahou as a place for them to worship. We honor that legacy by conducting parts of our service in the Hawaiian language and following other Hawaiian traditions.

We have had a wonderful supportive relationship with 808 Uke Jams and Halau Na Pua O Ka`iwa. Halau808 Uke Jams holds ukulele jam sessions in the Hale Pule, the sanctuary Wednesday afternoons and Thursday evenings. Halau Na Pua O Ka`iwa holds hula classes most Sundays in our Hale Aina, Community Room, including a free beginning hula class. Every two months both Halau share their music and dance at Sunday Service instead of the regular sermon.

Food Ministries

For over 30 years, this congregation has been providing food support to the needy of South Maui. 

Every Friday morning, our Foodbank supplies food to an average of 75 families that include an average of 120 individuals. {this was a guess – need more accurate numbers.}

Keolahou provides a free “Pot Luck” dinner for the homeless shelter every first Tuesday of the month, and have done so for the past 30 years.


Keolahou provides low cost meeting facilities to many groups. We are a member church of the United Church of Christ.   If  you would like to help us keep a roof over our heads (The last roof was  put on Sanctuary in 1979), keep the lights on, and the insurance bills  paid, please  DONATE
