… The church, the only Chinese house of worship in the District, out of more than a dozen in the region, is a gathering place for the area’s disparate Chinese community and reflects the patterns of Chinese immigration in the Washington area. Even though most members have long scattered from the city as the suburbs have grown, about 350 of them return each Sunday to the Chinese Community Church.
