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

  • February Greeting

    Message from our Minister

    The add states: To Whom it may concern. Search for the brave few who find value in serving others and showing mercy. This is not a program to participate in but a new way of being. A life dedicated to intentional community, humble service, and the steward-ship of grace. Measurement is empathy. There will be no credit or accolades, this is not a box to check. Only apply if you are poor in spirit. You morn. You’re meek. You’re a peacemaker, persecuted and insulted, but also blessed, made righteous and redeemed. Only apply if you believe in    giving not taking. When the world tells you to consume, collect, gain, and prove – you choose to share, help, heal, and love. Be a part of a generation of healers, not those who harm; of those who are here to serve not to be served. Join us. Sincerely, the brokenhearted, the bruised, the weary, the redeemed. Now the add is an invitation from a ministry of Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission. It’s for people who want to dedicate at least one year of their lives helping the mission serve the greater Seattle area. 

    But the add, is actually an invitation to true discipleship. How wonderful it would be to live and work around people who have this perspective on life. But that’s actually the kind of life all who follow Christ are called to live. And it’s the kind of life that I see beginning to bud in the lives of many who are actively involved in the ministries of our church.

    I’ve seen such attitudes in the parents of our youth who are willing to work hard to raise funds so their kids can be involved in our youth Mission trips. I see it in our folks who participate in our ministry with Family Promise. Where-by we are helping houseless families build the resources they need to pro-vide homes for their families. I see such selfless giving in the attitudes of those who serve during worship. Giving of their time and talents to make our worship a place where we can truly encounter the living presence of God. I could go on and on.

    We might not state it as intentionally as the ministry of Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission does in their add. But being a part of Community Church of Honolulu is also being a part of the same concepts that their add lays out. May God empower us to continue to develop such a life giving community.  Even to the point that when someone reads an add, like Union Gospel Mission’s they will inherently think of us. 

    May God allow it to be so.
