Welcome to the Community Church of Honolulu

Community Church of Honolulu (CCH) was established in 1934 by college and high school children of first-generation Chinese immigrants, with the intent of being a congregation-based, inclusive community of faith that would reflect Hawai‘i's diversity.

We celebrate God's presence in our lives through inter-generational Sunday worship at 9 a.m., followed by fellowship and Christian Education opportunities. We seek to serve the wider community in Christ's love and humility. We invite you to join us in a community of faith, sharing the love of Jesus Christ with each other and all people.

Community Church of Honolulu is a member of the United Church of Christ, whose congregational ancestors brought Christianity to Hawai‘i in the early 1800's.

The purpose of this website is to invite you to come to know who we are as a people of faith. Please contact us if you would like to know more about Community Church of Honolulu.

We trust, if it is God's will, that you will come and enjoy a personal experience of how God is at work with CCH through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

Pastor's Greeting

  • November Greeting

    Message from our Minister

    Living with a sense of thankfulness is not always easy. Sometimes situations can overwhelm us and we can find it hard to see the things to be thankful for. Sometimes in the midst of pain and loss, all we can see is what is missing whether it be the loved one that no longer walks with us or the abilities we once had that age has taken from us. But the art of Thankfulness is a discipline well worth the time to develop. Thankful people are more healthy people, they’re certainly easer to be around. Thankfulness is not some Pollyanna attitude that fails to see the reality around you but thankfulness is the art of being fully aware of your surroundings and still choosing to focus on what is good and uplifting, trusting that God can make good come out of the worst.

    As we approach the Holidays, for most it is a wonderful time of celebrations with family and friends, for some it is a stark reminder of what is missing in their lives. I encourage you to become sensitive to those around you and to those we so easily pass by without even recognizing. We offer more than we realize with just the simple recognition of our fellow traveler along life’s journey. And in recognizing them we become more aware of our own causes to be thankful. Maybe in the process of recognizing others we can see an opportunity to offer help in the smallest of ways and thus become a cause of thanksgiving in someone else’s life.

    At Community Church of Honolulu, we have much to be thankful for. That’s not to say we don’t have our challenges but for over eighty years now God has blessed this congregation with many faithful people who have given freely of their time, talent and resources.

    This month we are in the process of casting a vision of what we will be and do in our future. It will be reflected in our budget process. It’s been said you can tell a lot about a person by looking at their budget and allocation of their resources. Just as that is true of an individual, it is also true of any organization. How we allocate for the future reflects our faith or lack thereof.

    As we each consider how we will participate in the financial future of our church, may we do so from a place of thankfulness? May we be thankful for what God has done and is doing in our midst?
