The Chinese Community Church supports Buddhist, Taoist, Traditional Chinese, Interfaith and other Chinese-American Community Activities such as the Middle Way Buddhist Association, the Tao Gathering, and the Clearwater Chinese School. We also serve the larger community, and particularly minorities, as well all who want to learn about Chinese philosophy and culture and provide a once a week place of friendship and good guidance for our children as they grow up. Buddhist and and Traditional "Confucian" philosophy does not deny any other faith or religion, is not mutually exclusive but inclusive. It can benefit to everyone in terms of learning meditation for inner calmness, overcoming anger and frustration, and leading a more peaceful life. Most members also participate in other local churches or temples.
While the Chinese School is not religious, and students are of many faiths, we all share a common set of moral values embedded in Chinese culture and the encouragement of a love of learning and the arts. The Chinese Community Church provides the premises for the Clearwater Chinese School without rent, thereby helping to subsidize the cost of this education. The Chinese Community Church helps to support the Teaching of Chinese Culture and Values to the next generation of Chinese and American Young people, including orphans adopted from China. We have students from all ethnic and racial backgrounds in St. Petersburg, Florida.
