Finding Asian American History: Chinese Community Church

The Chinese Community Church (CCC), established in 1935, is the oldest church dedicated to serving the Chinese community of DC.

Originally, the CCC met at Mount Vernon Methodist Episcopal Church. Since then, it has relocated several times to support the congregation’s growth, moving to its current location at 500 I Street NW in 2006. The CCC is also home to the Chinatown Service Center, which provides tutoring programs for youth, tax assistance, translation services, and other social services.
