On the evening of Jan 1, 2017, members of the young adult fellowship in Beijing Fengtai Christian Church carried out the first watch & prayer meeting. Pastor Xiao Yunbei presided over the meeting.
The New Year Watch & Prayer meeting included admitting sin and repentance, praying for blessings, revival of the ministries of the church and fellowships, marriage, relationships and families of the members, and more.
Moreover, the fellowship prepared and set up a love bookshelf called "Light of Life." The service will kick off officially on Jan 6. The books are donations from young members or personal purchases. Pastoral workers and heads of the fellowship will regularly examine the contents of the books. The preliminary categories are primarily spiritual, and the nonspiritual books are limited to literature at the moment. The categories will expand gradually later. It was learned that Pastor Xiao of the fellowship reads one book each week. He also shared his reading notes in 2016.
