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

  • June Greeting

    June is a bittersweet month; it’s a month when we celebrate the accomplishments of our academic students. From preschool to college and graduate school, students make major transitions in their lives. And parents and grandparents wonder where did the time go? It seems like only yesterday we held them in our arms and smoothed away their hurts and pains.  As graduates, they walk toward new possibilities of venturing out to make their own way in this journey of life.  It seems like even from the start of their educational lives, they start the process of walking away from us.  Some say that process starts from the time when they begin to walk, more often than not, they are not walking toward us by away from us. 

    But that’s our job isn’t it?  To work ourselves out of a job to teach them to face life on their own, making their own way, learning the core truth that we are all interdependent on one another.  As bittersweet as graduations are, it’s a time to take stock in character development.  To realize how blessed we have been that God has allowed us the privilege of being a part of the development of God’s new creation. In a few short years our students will be the ones who will make the major decisions about the world and God’s creation.

    As people of faith, our graduates are clear indicators of how well we have lived our faith.  Are the equipped to face their tomorrows, disciplined in faith traditions and relationships, to meet the challenges of their day, living interdependent on God and their faith community? I guess time will tell. But our job isn’t finished yet.  The promises we made at their baptisms will not be fully completed as long as we still partake of the breath of life here on earth.  They still need our love, concern, grace and prayer as they continue their journey of life. As parents and grandparents and as their original faith community, our job continues until our journey or theirs is completed.

    Let us rejoice in their accomplishments and recommit to the promises we made at their baptisms, and ours.  May we and they continue to grow into the transformational reality God is calling us to be and live.

    Recommitting to the process,

     

    Pastor Ron
