Since the resumption of Sunday services on June 7, Suzhou Shishan Church has carried out many ministries, such as baptism and morning prayer.
On July 12, the first baptism of this year was held at the church, with 36 members baptized into Christ.
Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, people registered online for the catechism course and studied online for a total of 28 hours. All members of the course took an interview and written examination, and 36 passed the evaluation.
Five days later, the church resumed its on-site morning prayer service with 6 sisters. Since June 1, the church has started daily online morning prayer gatherings in QQ groups, with about 45 members participating every day.
In order to meet the elderly's desire to daily get closer to God, the church resumed its daily physical morning prayer gathering on July 17. Everyone who attends should wear a facial mask, take their temperature, and register their personal information when entering the church.
On July 12, the church's Joshua Praise Group held a collective birthday party. It was the first time for the praise group to gather together in 2020. More than 20 believers and pastors took part in this wonderful time.
