The Hokuloa Church was erected through the inspiration of Christian faith instilled in Hawaiians by the Rev. Lorenzo Lyons (1807-1886), an American Congregational missionary who came to the Big Island of Hawaii in 1832. The church structure now stands as a tribute to his labors which began in the village of Puako about 1835.

Hokuloa took two years to build and was dedicated on March 21, 1860 serving as a house of worship until the termination of the Puako sugar plantation in 1914. Following that, the landmark fell into disrepair and near ruin until an attempt to restore the Church was undertaken in 1966. In 1990 the building was completely restored and a new congregation was established.  Currently, the bell tower is in need of repair and fundraising is in progress.

The recitals will include the Voice of the Wood Chamber Players and organist Gllian Flack. Light desserts will be served during intermission.
