We're glad you found our website. Whether you're new to to East Hawaii or have lived here all your life, we hope you'll visit First United Protestant Church... we'd love to meet you. This is a church where you can find a space to be quiet, to meditate, to reflect and to question. Its a church where you can connect with God and find meaning, direction, encouragement and hope for daily living.
We welcome children and include them in each worship service through story and song... and then they leave for their own One Room Church where they enjoy more singing, handcrafts, stories and fun. Following our service, we gather on the lanai for refreshments and connecting with old friends and new.
Wouldn't it be great if life came with a great big eraser?
Poor choices, tragic accidents, personal failures and self-defeating behavior leave marks on us like scars on the soul. What kind of eraser would it take to remove those scars and make us feel fresh and new, uncluttered and unbound, living with hope and happiness? How do you erase a soul-scar?
We are body. We are mind. We are spirit. At First United Protestant Church, our vision is to create a place and community in which healing can take place at all levels of our humanity where injury or loss has left a scar. We believe in a God who loves us no matter what. We believe that there is no failure or injury that is beyond the power of God's Spirit to heal and restore.
Through meaningful worship, inspiring music, a welcoming Ohana and thoughtful, practical Bible Study, we offer everyone an opportunity to transform painful life-changes into opportunities for healthy growth.
In our community are friends who are living with loss due to death, divorce, illness and financial setbacks. We want to be a place where people who are struggling with personal issues of addiction, anger, shame, fear, depression and guilt find a warm welcome and a spiritual home.
We are a place where real people, with real issues can have a real encounter with a real God. Come and check us out. We'd love to meet you!!
