A United Church of Christ Serving Kauai Since 1835
Come Worship with Us
E Komo Mai! (Welcome!) to Koloa Union Church
We are followers of Jesus with a distinctly Hawaiian identity. Some of us are descendants of the native people of these islands and we celebrate with the language and customs of our ancestors. As an inclusive community of faith, reflecting the diversity of the people of Hawai‘i, we respect all cultures and backgrounds.
Our mission is to embrace, enhance and nurture God’s diverse and unique faith community, all to the glory of God.
Whoever you are and wherever you have been on life’s journey, you are welcome here!

SUMMER BOOK GROUP Kahu Akana leads our summer book group at the parsonage, 3281 Waikomo Road in Koloa, on Wednesday evenings. The group gathers at the parsonage at 6 p.m. for dinner and then discusses the book Convictions: How I Learned What Matters Most, by Marcus Borg. In this book, Borg reflects on his life and how he developed his most bedrock convictions–and why they matter. Please pick up your book on Wednesday for $10, and sign up on the bulletin board so that Kahu knows how much food to prepare. Kahu suggests that you read chapters 8 & 9 for July 12.
PRAYERS & SQUARES Contact Angela Dressel if you would like to get involved in praying for people in crisis or helping to make quilt squares for those in crisis.
