Sympathy Expressed.  Betty Lee Sung, who attended CCC in the 1940s before leaving the DC area to pursue further education and her career as an activist, author, and professor at City University of New York passed away on January 19, 2023.  She was influential in advancing the rights of Asian Americans and immigrants in the United States and remained a devoted friend to CCC.  Her funeral will be at Hines Rinaldi Funeral Home, 11800 New Hampshire Avenue, Silver Spring, MD on February 18, 2023 at 1:00 pm preceded by visitation at 10:00 am.

Flashback Chinatown D.C. “Flashback: Oral Histories of D.C. Chinatown” is a joint project between filmmaker Penny Lee and 1882 Foundation, with support from Humanities DC, to share unpublished oral histories of residents of D.C.’s Chinatown. Through a series of ten short films, the project showcases the voices of twelve Chinatown residents to tell stories about family, immigration, growing up in D.C., and what the community is like today.  Chinatown Service Center will host the showing of the interviews.  Some of the project participants will also be present to answer questions. All are invited to attend on Sunday, March 12, 2023 at 1 pm in the church fellowship hall.

Preboxed Offering Envelopes – If you would like to use a set of boxed offering envelopes next year please contact Rita or Helen Wong or treasurer@cccdc.com.  Provide your name, address, and phone number or email.  Note that the boxes will not have the current year since we are using up stock we received before the pandemic.

Offerings and Donations are being received during worship services.  Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly. Give according to what you have, not what you don’t have. 2 Corinthians 8:12 NLT. You may also send checks in the mail, add CCC to your Bill Pay service from your bank, or send offering through Pay Pal. Make payable to Chinese Community Church, 500 I Street, NW, Washington, DC 20001.  If giving through Pay Pal, avoid fees by designating Friends and Family from your account, not a credit card.  Beginning in 2023 recording of PayPal donations will reflect actual amount church receives (so fees will be deducted if incurred)

Offering collection boxes are also stationed in church worship spaces. In addition to operating budget, you may designate donations to missions, Good Samaritan Fund, Chinatown Service Center, Building Fund. Questions may be directed to treasurer@cccdc.com
