We finished off the summer with a virtual carnival! We invite everyone to continue to watch our videos!

Thanks to funding from our deacons, 100 hand sanitizers were recently donated to San Francisco Night Ministry. Rev. Valerie McEntee, Night Minister, gladly accepted them and said they were greatly appreciated since they go through about 30 bottles a night.


We’re excited to share that this summer, the Summer Adventure Camp for Kids (SACK), will move to an online format, with videos and live online meetings! SACK staff will be creating video content for campers to view, and also hold periodic live Zoom meetings for campers to join. For the online safety of campers and staff, registration will be required for campers to join the online live meetings.

Our top priority is the health and safety of both campers and our staff. As we follow San Francisco’s Shelter in Place policies for everyone’s safety, we hope to remain connected during the summer in new and exciting ways!

SACK 2020 will be free. We hope to share our virtual SACK camp with not only past campers but also with our church members and their families near and far! We will be posting more information soon. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to staying connected and keeping our SACK spirit strong!


With a shelter in place, perhaps this is a great opportunity for us to live into our theme for this year; To GLOW in our faith.

That is, to GLOW (Grow, Love, Outreach, Worship) in our faith we focus on Growing spiritually, Loving God’s people more through Outreach, and to enhance and deepen our Worship of our God.

Since we are finally under the same roof at the same time, for many of us, let us revive the family unit as a center of spiritual growth and worship. Here are some suggestions for these times:

1. Have family prayer time in the morning or evening (Opening prayer, worship song, a Bible reading and sharing, closing worship song and closing prayer).

2. Read through a Book of the Bible together. You’ll have fun with the Book of Proverbs. For couples Song of Songs will delight your heart and spur your love more for each other. As we are in Lent, reading through the four Gospels will attune and prepare your hearts for Good Friday and Easter. How about a Psalms challenge, read through 150 Psalms). There are 66 Books, no matter what you’ll choose, you’re meet and worship God through any one of them.

3. Start a phone tree to reach out to others to see how they are doing and if they need help with buying groceries or anything. Let’s reach out and touch someone with God’s love.

—Jake Yan Lan, Director of Ministry

[03/17/20]   Except for essential services six counties in the Bay Area have announced orders to “shelter in place” to help contain the spread of COVID19 until April 7th. To help curb the spread of the virus and to protect our most vulnerable population the Council has suspended all CCC activities until April 7th.

[03/13/20]   As you are aware by now the impact of COVID19 on our community evolves day by day. As organizations and institutions find ways to curb the spread of the virus locally our church Council has made a very difficult decision to cancel service this Sunday and all group gatherings for the rest of this week only. Please note that we are not cancelling church. We are just cancelling Sunday service and in-person gatherings. Groups can still find ways to connect with each other via social media and other means. We know that it’ll be hard for some of you. But it is good to err on the side of caution than to put some of our most vulnerable members at risk of being infected. We’ll share the Council’s decision for next week and for the next couple of weeks by Monday.

Preparations are ongoing for the 51st season of our Summer Adventure Camp for Kids(SACK) Prospective counselors, volunteers, and campers can apply online at the camp's website.


All of us remember the horrific images on the news of the wildfires in the North Bay and the devastation they caused. Two NCNC lay leaders, Dick Hom and Roy Mosley (former conference moderators) were moved to act. In short order they generated interest in a “Helping Hands Fundraiser” which included music concerts in three different areas of our conference--one in late November, and two in December.

A total of $23,100 was raised, which will be used for short and long term recovery needs in the communities affected by the wildfires. They will work with the churches and Long Range Planning Committees in these communities to identify where funds are needed.


Try to attend one of the NCNC "Helping Hands" Concerts to help those affected by the North Bay Fires. Several CCC acts will be performing.


Last Sunday, we celebrated CCC's 146th Anniversary, and also the birthday of a long-time member.


This afternoon, CCC's DulTones gave an energetic performance for an enthusiastic crowd at Chinatown's Autumn Moon Festival--had 'em dancing in the street!


The Ukulele Club of Chinatown celebrated their 5th Anniversary last night in the CCC social hall. About fifty people turned out for great Hawaiian food, music, and hula. Their next monthly meeting is Sept.18.


Last Saturday, approximately 150 guests celebrated the 50th
anniversary of our Summer Adventure Camp for Kids (SACK)
program, starting with an open house, followed by a program from our current SACK group, and an early dinner celebration. The camp was founded in 1969 by Dick Hom, Susan Lum, and Donna Dong.


This year marks the 50th anniversary of CCC’s Summer Adventure Camp for Kids (SACK). We’ll have an open house July 20 at 4 p.m., and a special worship service on July 21.


CCC's Dultones sang at the recent Northern California-Nevada Conference (NCNC) annual gathering held at Sonoma State University, June 13-15, 2019. Attendees spontaneously formed a fellowship circle in response to their closing song, “Amazing Grace.”


The Square and Circle Club, a respected Chinatown service and philanthropic organization, celebrated their 95th anniversary with a dinner and program last Saturday night. The club was founded in 1924 by seven female choir members from CCC, and has expanded its outreach throughout the years. During the program, Dr. Elaine Jang was recognized for her 82 years of active membership. CCC's doo-wop singing group, the DulTones also performed.


On Saturday morning, a group from the Esprit fellowship and youth volunteered at the SF Food Bank.


During our combined Mother’s Day worship, James Yan Lan gave a moving message about his late mother, Kena–and we were inspired by the music of the Mother’s Choir and the BelleTones.


The Ukulele Club of Chinatown covered several of the greatest karaoke songs in English and Chinese at our rocking meeting Wednesday night in the CCC social hall. Lots of good music, fellowship, and food! Our next meeting will be May 15th.


SF Mayor, London Breed, recently helped honor Dr. Elaine Jang as a role model.


Another great Sunday at CCC.


Candlelight Service, Christmas caroling, Youth Winter Retreat...Happy 2019!


We enjoyed a great meal on December 2 at our annual fellowship luncheon--thanks to everyone that helped and/ or attended.


There was a lot to be thankful for on Thanksgiving Sunday--an inspiring message and music, five baptisms, seeing absent friends return, and a wonderful lunch. We're grateful!


Reverend Gordon Lew spoke at our combined worship service October 21st, celebrating CCC's 145th Anniversary, and we were inspired by the performance of the combined Sanctuary/ Phoenix Choirs, followed by a delicious fellowship lunch.


Congratulations Elaine Jang on your 100th Birthday! She was actually born in the church building.

[09/10/18]   About 100 people attended our annual picnic and combined worship yesterday at Beresford Park, San Mateo--good food and fellowship!
