Waihee Church (also known as Waihee Protestant Church) is a historic church in Waihee, Hawaii. The church was built in 1848 for Waihee's missionary congregation, which was established circa 1830 by Jonathan S. Green. The church was built with lava rock and has a limestone foundation and wooden siding. A wooden bell tower originally topped the building; however, it was removed in 1987 due to termite and storm damage. The church became an official branch of the Kaahumanu Church in Wailuku in 1868.[2]

The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.
