Regular Worship Services and In-Person Church Activities Are Still Suspended Indefinitely

The District of Columbia continues in Phase 2 of Reopening which allows for in-person worship with restrictions, CCC is still delaying its return to in-person worship due to a recent increase in virus infections. On July 22, the Mayor declared a state of emergency in the District which remains in effect through the end of the year.  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, www.cccdc.com.
