Suzhou Church Joins in “Good Shepherd Campaign”
By Suzhou CCC&TSPM , March 20, 2018 09:03 AM
On February 25, 2018, the church in Jiangsu preached a message on "Destroying and Building" as a response to the yearly "Good Shepherd Campaign 2018" initiated by the Jiangsu CCC&TSPM four years ago. Over 20 pastoral workers were sent to deliver sermons in 16 local churches of Jiangsu Province.
The speakers interpreted the power of God's creation and the grace of salvation combined with elements of traditional Chinese culture. The Sunday was also "Theology Sunday" for the church in Jiangsu. Local churches urged the congregations to pay attention to the provincial theological education and called for prayer and donations.
Theology Sunday or Theology Day is set up for seminaries when churches pray for and give all the donations collected that day to seminaries.
