Join Us For In-Person Worship

We have resumed in-person worship services for both First United Protestant Church and the Kosraean Hilo Congregational Church.  Our worship times are:

First United Protestant Church at 10:00am

Kosraean Hilo Congregational Church at 1:00pm


Other Weekly Kosraean Worship Times

Sunday Service at 1:00pm

Sunday Etwai (Youth) Service at 2:30pm

We kindly ask you to please read the safety guidelines posted below about the changes we have made to our worship time.  Church doors open each Sunday at 9:30am to allow enough time for everyone to get checked-in and appropriately seated.  We ask families of the same household or those arriving in the same vehicle to please be seated together. 

Each Sunday we record our worship services, so those who remain home or watching us abroad may join us for worship. The recording of each worship service, along with our previous worship services, can be viewed online anytime at our YouTube Channel.

              COVID-19 Vaccine & Testing Information

God created us to be in community with others, to love and serve them as Christ would.  In fact, Jesus had an edict when it came to loving others and said the second greatest commandment after loving God was to love your neighbor as yourself (Mark 12:28-31).  We are also told by Paul, who many recognize as the greatest apostle to ever live, to look out not for our own interest, but also the interests of others (Phil. 2:4).  When it comes to caring for the brethren in our community, there is no shortage of scriptural evidence of our call and responsibility to so.  Receiving the COVID-19 vaccines is a certain and sure way of doing just this.  Below are links to where you can receive a vaccine or be tested to see if you have contracted the COVID-19 virus.
