Churches and meeting points in Jinshan District, Shanghai held special services for the elderly prior to the Double Ninth Festival which falls on October 14 this year.
Last Sunday, God Coming Church, Jesus Church, the Immortal Church, Gaoqiao Meeting Point, Jinshanzui Meeting Point, and other churches encouraged their congregations to honor the elderly and exhorted senior believers to pursue more abundant life, according to the Jinshan District CC&TSPM.
Before the special Sunday service, the Immortal Church in Fengjing Town offered medical services including blood pressure and glucose measurements to older Christians. Young and middle-aged believers put big flowers on the chest of elderly church volunteers above 80. The choir then presented gifts to the elderly.
The visitation team also visited the homes of the members above the age of 80, bringing funds to them.
