On April 1, 2018, the choir walked into Shanghai Moore Memorial Church, singing Easter hymns. The church that could accommodate about 1,000 people was packed with large crowds.
The church staff gave performances like poem reading, a dance, and a biblical play, to celebrate Easter.
A pastor said in the sermon,"The Resurrection of Jesus is the core of our faith. The Resurrection of Christ was the truest historical event and his empty tomb was the only incident that overcame death."
In the communion service, a pastor gave thanks and asked deacons and elders to distribute bread and cup to the congregation in different sectors.
After the service, every participant received an Easter egg.
