Ningxia Gospel Church Holds Inauguration Ceremony For New Hall

On April 6, 2019, after 3 years of construction, the new hall of the Gospel Church of Huinong District, Shizuishan, Ningxia province, was successfully completed. Church pastors and believers from all corners of the province gathered together for a thanksgiving service.
The church's new hall is located in the southern part of Huinong county. It stands on 9,976 square meters (2.46 acres) of land and has a floor area of 2,570 square meters (0.63 acres). The church has two stories, the second floor is the main hall, and the first floor consists of the auxiliary hall, a Sunday school, a reception room, etc. The two halls together can accommodate nearly a thousand people at the same time.
The original church was located in the north of Huinong County and was converted from a warehouse. Because it was sitting on top of an area of a coal mine, and the building foundation was further damaged by the construction work of a nearby real estate company, there was a huge risk to the safety of the congregation if a collapse happened. Thus, the church decided to build a new hall.
During the thanksgiving service, more than a dozen pastors from Ningxia province prayed a blessing for the new church, and choirs from other sister churches offered praise as well.
