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

  • September Greeting

    Message from our Minister

    As the Pastor of Community Church of Honolulu, I aim to be a part of positively transforming the world by promoting a Christianity that has intellectual integrity, is grounded in compassion, and that leads to a greater concern for the way people treat each other than for the way people express their beliefs, the acceptance of all people, and a respect for other religious traditions. I also think that, that was the attitude of the founding members and early pastors of this church. We stand poised at the beginning of the third millennium in our 81st year of service to carry that legacy forward. Acceptance of others and room for different opinions has been the hallmark of this congregation. That and the quality of our worship and service has distinguished our congregation within our community. One of the distinguished aspects of our worship has been the gift of music that has been offered by the people of our community of faith. Outstanding musicians, illustrious coral directors, notable soloist and engaging choirs have blessed us with the joy of music. Music has been an important part of who we are as a community of faith. I am pleased to announce that the restoration of our historic Rogers Pipe organ is now complete. Stephen Wittman, a trained factory representative from the Rogers Organ Company along with a team of his friends pulled the original specs from the factory archives and has spent countless hours and dedicated service to restore the organ to its original capacity. Stephen and his team have been truly a God send for the restoration we are deeply grateful for their service. In October we will rededicate the organ to the service of God and in doing so we will invite representatives from the Luke Family, the original major donors to be present in the service of dedication. At that service of dedication we will also be saying thank you to Helen Lee, our most recent illustrious coral director for her many years of service to our congregation. Helen a Julliard Graduate and well recognized in the Honolulu Music Community has used her many talents and connections to graciously serve our community of faith. The Service of dedication with be a celebration of the way Music has touched the life of our congregation. Music has served as a intergenerational tool to bring us together as a family of faith. We give thanks for the past and the people of this church who have shaped our present. We look forward to the future in how we too, will become part of the legacy of this Church in God’s outreach to the world.
