A Guangdong church held a celebration for the 40th anniversary of its resumption and the 130th anniversary of its foundation.
In the thanksgiving service held on October 16 in Taicheng Church, Taishan City, Rev. Fan Hongen, chairman of Guangdong TSPM, preached a sermon titled “An Unknown Person Preaching the Gospel”, sharing the experience of a Samaritan woman who bore witness to the Lord in obscurity after her personal life changed through a growing knowledge of Him. He exhorted the church staff to share the gospel to revive the Lord’s churches and to influence others by their own lives.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Taishan Christians living overseas who failed to attend the in-person celebration sent congratulatory messages or souvenirs.
The celebration ended with the hymn Glory to God.
