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

    Have you noticed? Community Church of Honolulu is not the same church it was five years ago, and it certainly is not the same church it was fifty years ago, nor is it the same church it will be five years from now. As much as we may resist it, change is inevitable.

    Our council is presently in the process of evaluating how best we can position ourselves to embrace and change for the better to anticipate the inevitable reality of change. At the April 24th council meeting, it was agreed to appoint a team of people who are willing to explore the possibilities of how our church should position itself to truly benefit from the inevitability of coming change. We are calling this team our “Delta Force.” We haven’t agreed who will make up this team, but a few names come to mind. What we do need from everyone is prayer. Pray for those who will make up this team, and pray that they will truly be led by God’s spirit. Pray for the leadership of our congregation that it will be receptive and open to the recommendations that the team makes. Pray for your pastor as he deals with the inevitable change ahead.

    It will be important that we all go through this process together. There will be some things that you will probably get very excited about; share your excitement. There will also be some things that you won’t fully understand or agree with. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, but do be willing and open to new possibilities and new ways of doing things.

    Also, let’s trust that in the process God will guide and lead us to be better prepared for the future. We want to be a congregation that is clear in our mission and focused on a process that will make that mission a reality in our lives and in the lives of those whom God will bring to us.

    For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

     

    Full of hope for the coming change, 

    Pastor Ron
