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

    Friday the 6th is the Feast of Epiphany, Rev. Kyle sent me the following; it seems to speak to the time in which we find ourselves.

    Ecclesiastes for 2017: For everything there is a season and a time for every single thing this side of heaven: a time to be a baby and a time for last breaths; a time to rage incoherently at the state of the world, and a time to tuck yourself into soft blankets and drink ginger tea; a time to smash the imperialist white supremacist capitalist heteropatriatchy, and a time to build up the egalitarian multiracial anti-racist environment internationalist love movement; a time to make wishes on dandelions, scattering seeds to the wind, and a time to pluck up the new weeds, declare them flowers, and make new wishes; a time to ugly cry and let the snot drip down, and a time to belly laugh till your sides ache; a time to grieve dear ones gone to glory, and a time for dance parties even among graves; a time to deep clean and throw away all the crap that doesn't spark joy, and a time to collect thrift shop treasures and impractical shoes; a time to cuddle so close you get tangled up in embraces and can't tell whose arms are whose, and a time to give each other space, to become your whole selves; a time to be on the search for what's next and what's on its way, and a time to let go of what you always thought you'd have; a time to recycle what's ready to go, and a time to up-cycle what wants keeping; a time to shred old files, and a time to stitch up fresh wounds; a time to get real still and quiet and a time to tell true things out loud; a time to love what needs loving and a time to hate what needs hating; a time for necessary conflict and holy resistance, and a time for peace which steadily persists and passes all our understanding.

    As we enter this year with all of its unknowns, may God truly give us a spirit of discernment to fully understand the time we find ourselves in and the courage to respond in the truly appropriate godly fashion.     

    The Feast of Epiphany is an historical reminder that God in the Christ child has come for everyone. There is no boundary that Gods extravagant love does not transcend. May we in this Epiphany season have our eyes opened to the daily provision, whereby God breaks through our boundaries and provides the penetrating light in our darkened spaces.

    Let us together seek God's light.  

    Pastor Ron
