Welcome to the First United Methodist Church of Honolulu.

Dear Friends:

We are back to in-person worship! Despite the State of Hawaii dropping mask protocols indoors, we encourage and recommend taking safety measures, especially mask wearing, vaccinations and boosters.

We will continue to offer online worship on Facebook Live and edited versions on YouTube. See below for details.

Thank you for your patience during these challenging times.

In spite of it all, the grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be present for us no matter what.


We know that many are concerned about the situation in Ukraine. If you wish to donate toward Ukraine Relief, please go to our giving site HERE and go to the dropdown menu (the default wording is pledge/tithe), click and select “UMCOR – Ukraine relief.”

You can also send checks to the office payable to First UMC of Honolulu. Please note “Ukraine relief” in the memo section of your check. Thanks so much for your concern.

Grace and aloha,

Pastor Tom Choi
