Thanksgiving celebrations have always been a tradition for the church in Northeastern China.
On November 17, 2019, Nanzhan Church of Dengfeng County, Liaoyuan, Jilin province held a praise and worship meeting. This is one of the celebrations during "Thanksgiving Month", an initiative of the church's senior pastor, Rev. Liu Xuesong.
The church expressed gratitude by carrying out different activities involving social service, traditional culture, and praise and worship.
Rev. Liu highlighted that Christians should be grateful at all times, not only on Thanksgiving. We shoud express our indebted hearts by counting God's grace and being salt and life in daily life.
Smaller groups and fellowships presented different performances, including a biblical play about the prayer and dedication of Hannah.
