Rev. Steve Hong

After a 3 year search, and by a unanimous vote of approval, the Rev. Steve Hong has been called to be the new lead pastor of the Chinese Congregational Church UCC, in San Francisco. Rev. Hong will begin his ministry on August 29th when he moves from the East coast to the West coast. God’s blessing on both Rev. Hong and the Chinese Congregational Church.


Thank You, Jake

We bid farewell to God’s faithful servant, Jake Yan Lan, who has served CCC for 13 years as Youth Pastor and Director of Ministry. He, and his family, have added so much to our lives. Good luck and thank you, Jake!

Summer Adventure Camp for Kids

Our Summer Adventure Camp for Kids (SACK) will be virtual again in 2021. We are currently seeking campers and counselors. Check out our videos from last summer.  

We have updated the job descriptions based on our virtual format. Please visit and click the staff page for job descriptions and applications.


Chinese/ American Vets Honored

During an era of prejudice, over 18,000 Chinese/ American men and women served our country in World War II– only 300 are still alive, which includes  CCC’s Reverend Matthew Fong.  The Congressional Gold Medal is an honor long overdue for these veterans–you can watch the ceremony here


Helping a School

Edmund and Hermann deliver a batch of supplies from CCC to principal Sonny Wong, of Spring Valley Elementary School. Many of the school’s students and families are in dire need of  basic necessities during this extended pandemic, and the church wants to help.


Back to School (Virtually)

Kudos to our Bay Area teachers and students, who are working together to learn, while unable to be physically together inside a classroom.
