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

  • May Greeting

    After six months of severe chronic pain, having my body x-rayed, CT-scanned in numerous ways and waiting over two weeks for surgery approval, I have finally been approved for surgery.

    Waiting takes such a large part of our lives! It’s a struggle to wait patiently: to find the peace of knowing that God is in the process, and to not become annoyed with people in the system who do their job without a sense of purpose. You know the type. “Don’t blame me. I am JUST doing my job”, and having no concept that how they do their job affects people’s lives. Waiting!

    My Lenten commitment this year was to see every person that I come in contact with as gifts from God: to try to imagine what life is like through their eyes; to live out the Native American proverb of not judging until you have walked in the other person’s shoes. I have found that it has been very helpful in my waiting.

    I have also found that in waiting, you can either be anxious or calm and still. I like to be still and know that God is God. One is obviously more empowering than the other. None of this makes waiting easier, but I am finding that even in waiting, we have options of how we can respond.

    So I am waiting for my surgery to be scheduled; waiting to see if the surgery will fully diminish my pain; waiting for the next step in my healing process; and finding that physical and spiritual healing go hand in hand.

     

    Thanks for all the prayers! I have sensed their empowerment, especially on days when the pain seems overpowering. I am so grateful to be a part of a caring, loving community.

    Learning to wait,

    Pastor Ron
