A new church was dedicated in Xindang Village, Huarong County, Yueyang, Hunan.
Situated in the westernmost part of the county and neighboring Hubei Province, the old church was dilapidated. The new construction was completed in two months by the congregation.
The new church covers an area of 1,500 square meters (2.25 acres) with a floor space of 750 square meters (1.12 acres).
The dedication service was presided over by Preacher Zhang Jie, vice chairman of the Huarong County TSPM, and attended by over 300 people.
Feng Shulin, the church leader, shared difficulties during the project and counted God's grace.
