How is Kilohana different than other churches?Kilohana has been located in Niu Valley for nearly 70 years. One of the distinct things about our church is that we’re an all-generations community. From our Senior Enrichment Center to our Preschool to all of our activities in-between, there’s a place for you here, and we look forward to seeing you soon. Our church campus is located at 5829 Mahimahi Street. (Get Directions).

What do you have for my kids?At Kilohana we are extended family, and as family we take great care in providing opportunities for our keiki of all ages. We strive to create environments that are both safe and celebratory of the child’s age and stage of life. We love what we do and the children we get to work with!
Nursery care is provided during Sunday worship, for children birth – 2nd grade. All children join us in the sanctuary at the beginning of worship service and are then invited to follow the nursery leaders to their classroom at the appropriate time during service.
Sunday school classes are available for children 2 years and up thru seniors in high school at 9am on Sunday morning. Starting at 9am, all the students join together for assembly. We share announcements pertaining to our children’s programs, celebrate students’ birthdays, ask for prayer requests and just try to get the children to know each other and the other teachers better. Assembly time is also used to teach students songs and Bible verses that we perform during the worship service throughout the year. After assembly, students break up into age appropriate groups for their Bible lessons.
