One-Day Virtual Summer Retreat

On August 22. Reverend Jim Han, pastor at Open Worship Tacoma Central Presbyterian Church (OWTCPC), will lead two sessions on “Fighting for True Joy in the Pandemic”.  See registration information on the homepage of the website.


  1. Regular Worship Services and In-Person Church Activities Are Still Suspended Indefinitely. Although the District of Columbia is in Phase 2 of Reopening which allows for in-person worship with restrictions, CCC is still delaying its return to in-person worship to make sure there is not an increase in virus spread due to the lifting of restrictions and recent mass gatherings. On July 22, the Mayor declared the state of emergency in the District will remain through October 9. Wearing a face covering is also mandatory when moving about the city.  The plans for phased reopening of CCC will be publicized on our website, email or WeChat groups.  We will also send out a mail communication once plans are in place.  Online activities will continue for now.  The Official Board has established a Re-Opening Church Action Group which will publish the guidelines.  Check the church website frequently for up-dates,
