CCD Monthly                                                      November 2021


Greetings! We are China Christian Daily, the first comprehensive English Christian news website about the church in China. Thank you for your sincere love, prayer for and contributions to the Chinese church.

Originating in the United States during the English Reformation, Thanksgiving has become one of the most important holidays among the Chinese Christian community. Rural Christians usually bring their first fruits to the church to give thanks to God for His blessings, providence, and grace throughout the year. Some churches even designate November as the Thanksgiving month in which they perform songs and dances, hold bazaars and testimony sharing meetings, and carry out evangelistic meetings. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, some churches are closed but local believers count God's grace in their lives. This month we share some celebration stories, photos, and a Christian testimony with you.

You can also read trending news as well as features about a faithful story of an elder who serves God the whole life, a middle school where the anti-footbinding movement started, and appeals for the change of living out faith in today's China and environmental protection.
