Before the 2019 Chinese Lunar New Year that fell on February 5, 2019, a rural gathering of Jilin Christians organized its members to clean up streets in order to eliminate fire hazards.

In Shaheyan Town, Dunhua, the congregation swept the streets of eleven surrounding unincorporated villages in four days where most of the villages are migrant workers in cities, except during the festival. 

The Hedong Christian Gathering received a silk banner for its social service. 

Preacher Li Guilan, head of the congregation, said that the church should undertake its social responsibility and will do its best to contribute to its hometown.
