Last week Chinese communities throughout China and abroad celebrated Mid-Autumn Festival, eating mooncakes and admiring the full harvest moon. China Christian Daily tells of three churches that joined the celebrations during the month.

Rev. Li Lujun gave a speech at the beginning of the Mid-Autumn praise meeting in Jida Church, Panglong District, Kunming, Yunnan, on the evening of September 15, 2021.

Three Churches Celebrate Mid-Autumn Day

Three churches held activities to mark the Mid-Autumn Festival which fell on September 21 this year.

Jida Church in Panglong District, Kunming, kicked off a Mid-Autumn praise meeting themed “Heart Return in Full Moon Night” on the evening of September 15. The Youth Fellowship sang the hymns “Open Heaven” and “Come Sing Out Loud,” followed by a poem recitation of “Hometown” from Cypress Wood Fellowship. After the hymns “Winter Is Past, The Rain Is Gone” and “Happy Is Our Life” were played on an accordion, a male believer performed the song “Let Me Stay” on the cello. At the end, “The Essence of Love” was sung by the Bible Study Fellowship and “The Return of the Heart” by the Olive Tree Choir.

Four days later, Hushuguan Church in Suzhou, Jiangsu, also held a praise meeting with the theme of “In the Heart of God”, with 100 Christians participating.

On the evening of the Mid-Autumn Festival, the Workplace Fellowship of Jiaojiang Church in Taizhou, Zhejiang, held a tea party to share the Lord’s grace.
