Fujian Church Holds Prayer Service to Observe International Mother’s Day
By CCD contributor: Lin Muli , May 15, 2018 01:05 AM
This International Mother's Day on May 13, 2018, Fuzhou Huaxiang Church of Fujian held three prayer services. More than 10,000 believers attended the activities.
Rev. Chen Ming, associate general secretary of the Fuzhou CCC&TSPM, gave a sermon titled "The Greatness of Mothers", citing Proverbs 1:8 and 31:10-31.
Choirs also presented Christian songs about mothers.
The church's history can be traced back to 1915 when western missionaries appointed by the Methodist Episcopal Church purchased land and gave it as a gift to the church. It was the first Methodist church built within the walled city of Fuzhou. The local pastor was tasked with leading efforts in organizing the church. Eventually, the church was dedicated in the spring of that same year with a reading room, a library, two kindergartens for boys and girls and the provincial CCC&TSPM branch. In that same year, the first baptism service was held in September.
