In light of the governmental guidance, the pastoral team has decided to close the church and move to livestreaming our Sunday worship starting this Sunday, March 15, 2020.
Please join us for worship from your home at 9:30 am (Mandarin) or 11:00 am (English) at indychinesechurch.org.
Although these are unique and difficult days, it is important for us to continue to follow the Lord.
Therefore, please continue to use the Daily Guides to lead your daily and family devotions and continue to meet in your growth groups (whether in real life or online).
May God give us the grace to grow in Him!

The church's position is to encourage brothers and sisters to attend every meeting with faith in God. In the meantime, as a church and as individuals, we need to do a good job of protection and cleaning. We also need to respect and listen to the guidance of government authorities.
Given the changes of the COVID-19 epidemic, there may be two changes in the form of Sunday worship in the future.
The first is to add webcasts to the existing church worship so that those who need self-isolation, are unwell, or are on business/vacation travel, can participate in church worship in real time anywhere by smart phone/computer. We are speeding up the testing of these webcasts. Secondly, if the Indiana State Government or Hamilton County Government where the church is located has clear instructions or interventions due to the epidemic, such as the closure of public schools, cancellation of large gatherings, then the church will only provide live webcasts of worship until further notice.
CCCI pastoral team and deacon board will closely monitor the development and actively respond to changes in the epidemic and rely on the Lord to overcome the current difficulties with brothers and sisters.
首先是在現有的教會崇拜加上網絡直播，幫助需要自我隔離的，身體不適的、在外出差的或外出旅行的，可以藉著智能手機 / 計算機在任何地方即時參與教會的崇拜，我們會加快對網絡直播的測試工作。其次，如果教會所在地的印州州政府或Hamilton縣政府因疫情有明確的指示和干預，比如公立學校關閉，大型集會需要取消，屆時教會就單單提供崇拜的網路直播，直到另行通知。

With the escalation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States, the CCCI pastoral team and deacon board is closely monitoring the development and is committed to keeping brothers and sisters as healthy as possible. We understand these are sensitive times, but we also gather by faith and seek God’s protection for His people. Please review this guidance at our website as it may update pending ongoing development of COVID-19 and further guidance from local regulations and authorities.
Currently, we will continue to have regular activities at CCCI including Sunday worship, Sundays school, Wednesday Prayer meeting, Friday Youth group, AWANA program, etc. At the same time, we ask you to avoid attending any church activity if any of the conditions are met:
Thank you for helping us to keep Chinese Community Church of Indianapolis a safe place to learn and serve together in Christ.
