Changsha Foreign Students' Fellowship Celebrates 14th Anniversary
By Changsha North City Church, March 06, 2019 11:03 AM
On the afternoon of February 27, 2019, at the North City Church of Changsha City, Hunan province, hymns were sung, accompanied by melodies, prayer, and praise. This was the 14th anniversary celebration of the International Student Fellowship.
Showing much passion with strong voices and rhythmic dancing, students from Africa sang praises to the upbeat music, highlighting their unique and exotic style of worship.
At the invitation of the International Student Fellowship, singing the Happy Birthday song, Pastor Fu Xinde and the international students shared a birthday cake to celebrate the anniversary.
The foreign students' fellowship is mainly composed of young students from Africa. They use both English and French to pray, worship, witness, share and have fellowship after the service. The first Sunday of each month is their communion Sunday, where the pastor distributes the Holy Communion to them. Since its establishment in 2005, many groups of international students have come to and left the Student Fellowship, but it has always been like a second home.
