Praise God that after over a year of online services, our church has now reopened for a hybrid of online and in-person Sunday service and Sunday School!

The theme of 2024 is “Missional Church. Missional Disciple”. This reminds brothers and sisters to think more about what we, as a church, should do regarding missions and how disciples who care about missions should get involved.



Our 2024 church calendar can be found here!



As more people return for in-person services, we kindly ask for brothers and sisters to take advantage of the free parking on the street. This way, we can save the church parking lot for guests, elderly, families with young children, or others who need easier access to the building.



To follow government regulations for composting food waste, the church is implementing a waste reduction and classification system. In order to correctly classify waste, the church trash cans will no longer be for food waste (including beverage cups and cans). We kindly ask that you use reusable lunch boxes which you can take home to clean or, if you use disposable lunch boxes, to take those home and dispose of it yourself. Keeping the church clean requires everyone’s participation; please also kindly remind each other from time to time. Thank you so much for your cooperation!



Offering is collected online via Zelle, using the email address accounting@cbcwla.org as the recipient. More information can be found here. Please add “English Congregation or (“EC”) ” on your electronic or check offerings’ memo section. Donations via Zelle are tax-deductible, and the Accounting Office will include these gifts in a year-end receipt to the name registered on your Zelle-linked bank account.



The church has decided to resume the lunch ticket sales system. Lunch tickets will be available for purchase at the entrance of the Fellowship Hall. Green tickets ($3) are for those who bring their own lunch boxes, red tickets ($4) are for those who need disposable lunch boxes, and yellow tickets ($1) are for children. For more details, please visit the church website.



Got a prayer request to share? Want to give some encouragement to those who are serving? We have a new online feedback form here. Please also take a minute to fill out the form each week that you worship in the company of others, to help us get a more accurate sense of who we’re reaching through the live stream worship service. Thank you!



If you test positive after attending our in-person services, please notify Brother Zhongcai Ma (our Fellowship Dept. Council) at [email protected]. The church will anonymously contact those who sat close to you so others can take precautions as well. Thank you for your cooperation!
