Mar 21, 2020   •  
  1. Worship Services and Church Activities Will be Suspended through the end of April. Check the church website frequently for updates and when there will be a return to normal schedule –
  1. The church office and Chinatown Service Center may still be reached by phone during weekday office hours. Jenny will answer for the church at 202-637-9852 and Michelle will answer the Chinatown Service Center line at 202-898-0061.  Pastors and staff may also still be reached by email or phone.  Please reach out if you or a loved one are in need of pastoral care.  Our building worker has disinfected our building and will do so again before we open our doors.
  1. Easter Schedule We are still waiting on guidance from the government leaders before making our April schedule. The Official Board will continue to teleconference to stay on top of these matters.  For now, we have postponed reception of new members until later this fall and canceled our Easter lily order since visitation to shut-ins is discouraged and we do not know when we may return to church.
  1. Offerings and Donations are welcome as church expenses continue. Send checks in the mail, add CCC to your bill pay service from your bank, or send through Pay Pal.  Make payable to Chinese Community Church, 500 I Street, NW, Washington, DC 20001.
  1. Precautionary Measures Due to Coronavirus
  • It is suggested that those returning from overseas travel should stay at home for two weeks to minimize spreading contagions.
  • Follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for protecting yourself – wash hands frequently with soap and water, cover coughs and sneezes, avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands, stay home if you feel ill.  Please see flyers on the bulletin boards for other helpful tips.
  • Consult a doctor if you have a high fever, cough or breathing problems.
  • Be aware of anti-Asian/Chinese sentiments from those who have anger or fear related to the virus’ origins.  Call 911 if you feel threatened.
  • Trust God in this and all situations acting as Jesus would to check on people who may need assistance, not giving into fear, verifying information before passing it on, praying often for His protection and trusting Him for the outcome.  Our response in any situation is a testimony of our faith.
  • You are advised to stay home, only going out to buy groceries, if necessary.  You do not want to bring the virus home to loved ones.  Any further cancellation of worship services will be announced through the website, phone tree, social media, WTOP and WJLA.  If you want to be on the email list, please make sure we have your current email by contacting
