The monthly Mandarin Bible Study on the first Friday evening aims to provide a platform for those who came from mainland China without Biblical backgrounds to explore more basic knowledge of the Bible and Christian history. In a relaxing, home-like atmosphere, attendees could exchange their ideas, insights, questions about the Bible and faith. We strengthened our spiritual connections through the discussions in the Bible Study.
The Chinese Fellowship explores various programs to reach out to Chinese communities. More than 30 dancers participate in two dance courses on Wednesday and Thursday evening. The Vocal Exercises, started in September 2019, music lovers practice vocal skills under professional guidance on a biweekly basis. The Badminton and Xiangqi (Chinese Chess) club attracted more players to play on each Saturday. The Chinese Fellowship organizes and manages various year-round activity groups and always welcomes new members to join:
Beyond that, the Chinese Fellowship organizes much more fun activities and celebrations in a year. In June, we work together to make ‘Zongzi’, or sticky rice dumplings, for the celebration of “Double Fifth Festival”. In summer, there are various outdoor activities including hiking days, picnics and camping trip. In October, a team of volunteers make more than 500 dumplings to support the Fall-Fair of Knox. On the evening of December 31, the New Year Eve, we cook together to make dumplings and delicious Chinese food before the midnight countdown to the new year. As a big Church family, everyone of Chinese Fellowship cares for each other in daily life. There is always more to discover about the Love of God! We warmly invite you to join us!
