Nanzhan Christian Church of Dongfeng County, Liaoyuan City, China's northeastern Jilin Province held an offertory and praise service before Thanksgiving Day which falls on Thursday. 

In the morning service conducted on November 22, the whole congregation had an offertory and in the evening they had a thanksgiving praise service.

The offertory followed the Bible’s instruction, “Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering and come into his courts.” (Psalm 96:8) The in-person service was attended by the whole congregation.

In the morning service, after the pastor’s sermon, the congregation was instructed on how to bring their offerings of gratitude to God. The pastoral staff was the first group to share their gratitude, followed by the choir and then the congregation.

The evening praise service started with the song, "On the Holy Mountain" by the pastoral co-workers who were dressed in special costumes. The praise team, dressed in neat uniforms, led everyone to praise God through graceful dances in a moving melody. They sang twelve songs including "Road of Grace", "Accompany Me Through Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter", and "From the Place of Sunrise to the Sunset".

During the last song "I Bless You Today", everyone greeted each other, saying "Jesus loves you and I love you".  The praise meeting ended with the pastor’s blessing.
