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

    Very soon we will be celebrating Thanksgiving; the official beginning of our yearend holiday season. We have much to be thankful for as a community of faith. While other congregations have truly suffered since the downturn of 2008, we have much to be thankful for. Gratefully, we have a wonderful campus that needs sustaining and maintaining because it is a wonderful income resource for us. Presently, our campus brings in around 60% of our financial resources each year. That is mainly the results of Boss Maui, LLC, our Japanese wedding consultant, a wedding vendor that uses our campus for their weddings, and the Tutu and Me Program that uses our facility as a base of their operations. The remainder of our rental income comes from different groups who rent space for either sports activities or other Christian organizations who align with out stated mission. 

    In 2016, we started out with a welcomed uptrend in our tithing that has helped carry us through this year on a positive note. We can be thankful for all of our faithful participants in our faith community, who give out of joy for the cause of Christ and the mission of our church. I want to personally thank those few who gave above and beyond this year. In the nine years of being you pastor, this year had been the highest giving year since I have been here, and we have accomplished that with fewer giving units. That is something to be thankful about. But it is also a living reality as we face the future, but not one that is not doable. 

    So as we reflect on our causes to give thanks, make sure to consider all the reasons that we as a church have to give thanks. Someone recently commented to me about the positive attitude of the people of our church, in that people are happy to volunteer and serve in the many areas of outreach. And while serving, they seem to do so with a pervasive, joyful attitude. What a wonderful perception that person has of our church!

    We have much to be thankful for!

    And I am thankful to be Your Pastor.

    Pastor Ron
