September is Give Aloha Month

It's that time of year again! We are participating in Give Aloha, Foodland's annual community matching gifts program. Imagine, just by donating to Emmanuel through this program during the month of September, you can stretch your regular donation or pledge by approximately 20%

How does it work? During September, Maika'i members can use Emmanuel's code #78751 at checkout to make donations up to $249. Special Kupuna shopping hours are being offered by Foodland on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 6am to 7am. Online orders will also have a "Give Aloha" option at checkout. Foodland will match a portion of the donated funds. 

Give Aloha donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Please provide a copy of your receipt to the church office if you want your donation to Emmanuel included in your contribution statement. 

Thank you for supporting Emmanuel!

Contactless Outreach

Mahalo to everyone who helped us participate in the 100 Hours of Service, an initiative of the Institute for Human Services (IHS) that honored the legacy of founder Reverend Claude DuTeil for what would have been his 100th birthday! Our menehune collected non perishable food items, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and PPE for IHS and Family Promise of Hawai'i.

Video Reflections


Aloha & Welcome!

We are celebrating 60 years in Kailua!


You are invited to a place where The Divine is encountered, Love shared, and Justice embodied. Emmanuel Episcopal Church is a small but dynamic faith community which is diverse in membership, traditional in worship, and progressive in theology. The hope, joy, and challenge of Jesus Christ, who we get to know in word and sacrament, in prayer and fellowship, is at the heart of what we do and what we offer. 



The Emmanuel 'Ohana warmly welcomes EVERYONE! Join us on Sundays at 7:30 am and 10:00 am for worship services, and throughout the year to support our community!
