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

  • January Greeting

    It’s 2016, and so we start a New Year: new possibilities, new potential, new beginnings. Or will it simple be a continuation of just same old stuff? King Solomon, once wrote: “What do people get for all their hard work? Generations come and go, but nothing really changes. The sun rises and sets and hurries around to rise again. The wind blows south and north, here and there, twisting back and forth, getting no-where. The rivers run into the sea, but the sea is never full. Then the water returns again to the rivers and flows again to the sea. Everything is so weary and tiresome! No matter how much we hear, we are not content. History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before.”

    Thankfully there are other voices from scripture regarding what is yet to come. Here are but a few:

    Jeremiah 29:11 ESV

    For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

    2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV

    Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

    Isaiah 43:19 ESV

    Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

    Isaiah 43:18-19 ESV

    “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

    Lamentations 3:22-24 ESV

    The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”

    Ephesians 4:22-24 ESV

    To put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

    I pray that in the newness of 2016, that we will, by God’s grace, have the ability to perceive the new things that God has prepared and is preparing for us individually and as a church for this coming year. May we every morning take the time to behold the newness of God’s extravagant Love and Grace. 

     

    The old has passed; behold the new! 

    Pastor Ron
