During the Sunday worship held on July 28, 2019, there were offerings for church building in Hengshui city; it was the first "Sunday offering" for many years in Zhu'en church, Zhao county, Shi Jiazhuang city, that was dedicated to support church building.
According to Zhaozhou Zhu'en Church, after the congregation engaged in worshipping and singing, Rev. Feng announced the beginning of offerings dedicated to church building. The believers gathered in front of the offering box in two groups, the young and the elderly.
The offerings of many elderly people were actually pocket money given to them by their children. Although they were just "two very small copper coins", in the eyes of the Lord Jesus Christ, it was the most abundant offering.The joy of a sister's offering could be seen on her face. Regardless of being old or young, people queued towards the offering box.
Up to this point, offerings for church building in Hengshui city have reached 59,564 yuan. Everyone's enthusiasm for the Sunday offering was running high; even many brothers and sisters who could not come for worship for various reasons, participated in this offering to the saints by way of trustee, WeChat transfer, etc.
