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

  • May Greeting

    Message from our Minister

    The stewardship committee has proclaimed the theme of this year to be the year of "Here I Am Lord."  Taken from one of the praise songs that we sing in worship which is based upon the passage in Samuel, when as a small child young Samuel hears God speaking to him in the night.  Samuel's response after seeking council from the priest Eli is to answer God's call by saying "Here I Am Lord."  The stewardship committee chose the theme for this year after hearing the choir sing a rendition of the praise song in which several of our young choir members were featured.  Several on the committee were so moved, it caused them to question how are they responding to God's call in their lives? And the committee concluded it would be a good question for all of us to answer.  So on the committee's behalf, I ask each of you, how are you responding to God's call?  Our response can be life altering as choosing a new job or life's direction, or as simple as responding more gracious to those in your speak of influence.  It's a question we need to continue to ask because our response will be different under different circumstances. How I respond today isn't necessarily how I will respond a year from now.

    The committee is also encouraging everyone to encourage others by identifying actions in those around us that communicate a response to God's call.  Encouraging them by snapping a picture or writing a brief blurb for the watchman of the action of others that keeps you encouraged.  Obviously you could submit the written material for the watchman to be published but you can also submit pictures to the office as well.  The committee's hope is that in a very short time we will have collected enough pictures that we could play a photo stream of different pictures that could be shown on the overhead screen prior to the start of our service.  Scripture talks about finding ways to encourage one another and the Stewardship committee hopes this can be one way we can live that encouragement out.  So don't be surprised if you see some flash the next time you respond to God's call.

    Keeping my eyes open!

    Pastor Ron
