You may come any time during the hour. To request meeting link, please click here.

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 or using the Pay Pal Giving Fund.  Beginning in 2023 recording of PayPal donations will reflect actual amount church receives (so fees will be deducted if incurred)
