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

  • April Greeting

    Message from our Minister

    I recently read an article where a pastor told about a woman who fainted in church one Sunday while he was preaching. She fell over and struck her head on the end of the pew. Immediately, an EMT in the congregation called an ambulance. As they strapped the elderly woman to a stretcher and got ready to head out the door, she motioned for her daughter to come near. The daughter leaned close to hear what her mother had to say. Her mother whispered to her: “My offering is in my purse.” Now there’s a woman who came to church with a heartfelt desire to GIVE to the Lord.

    I am writing this blurb the week after our Easter celebration. Easter like Christmas is one of the Sundays during the year when most people attend church. That’s true for our congregation, we see folks on these two days that we rarely see during the year. Don’t get me wrong I am grateful that we have a nice bump in attendance, and it’s good to see folks you haven’t seen for a while. We all approach faith in different ways and I know that some of those who now attend just two Sundays during the year will somewhere along the way start to attend on a more regular basis.

    Earlier this year our choir sang a special arrangement of the music from the praise songs “Here I Am Lord.” It was a beautiful arrangement and during the song three or four of our young girls sang one of the courses. It was an ethereal moment during our worship their voices sounded angelic. That moment hit a cord with the members of our Stewardship Committee and as a result, they want to have as our theme for this year’s Stewardship focus as “Here I Am Lord.” Like the woman who fainted, and was more concerned about her offering than getting to the hospital after she had fallen and bumped her head, we each need to ask ourselves, what am I most concerned about in my church attendance? Is it what I get from it, i.e. a consumer mentality? Or is it what I can add to it, i.e. a servant mentality? As we follow in the footsteps of our risen Savior who it is said that he didn’t come to be served but to serve. May we this year find the joy in responding, “Here I Am Lord.” In the attitude of service.
