Chinese Fellowship Groups

Proverbs Bible Study Group

The first bible study group in the church, meet every Friday evening at the church from 7:30 to 9:30 PM. Most members are brothers and sisters in Christ, and half of them are empty nesters; however, we welcome young families to join us as well! Whenever we meet on Fridays, we sing praises to our gracious Lord for about half an hour before we study the word of God together. Once in a while, we meet at members' house or go outing to fellowship. The sharing of God's word and God's love encourages us to grow spiritually and to testify the gospel among the Chinese community. As Proverbs 3:5-6 states, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight."

Salt & Light Bible Study Group

The members of our fellowship are mostly from Mainland China. We care and support each other in our daily life, to grow together in the word of God. Jesus said, "You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." (Matthew 5:13-16) This is how we name our fellowship group, and a lifelong goal that we seek.

Most of the Friday evenings, we meet at the classroom across from the kitchen in the basement at the church from 7:30 to 9:30 PM. There is also a pot-luck dinner at 6:30 PM on every second Friday of the month. We usually study the Bible or occasionally special topics after the sinspiration and pray for each other.

Sister's Bible Study Group

Sister's Bible Study Group is a fellowship that consists of Christian sisters and female Gospel seekers. We meet every Tuesday morning, beginning at 10 am at the member's home. In the meeting, we sing hymns and songs to praise the Lord, study the Bible systematically, and share our testimonies with one another. Such a fellowship in love helps us to live a life pleasing to God and furthermore prepares us to successfully fulfill our duties in family, church, work, and community. Above all, we strive to become a worthy vessel that may glorify God and become a blessing to people around us.

In the past few years, by God's grace our group has become a Gospel channel via which many seekers learn to know God and eventually accept the Lord. In the future, we will continue to uphold this Gospel-centered vision. That is, our group may not only help Christian sisters to grow in Spirit, but also help the Gospel seekers to be touched by God's love, to know Christ, and to accept the Lord. Through such a fellowship in love, we become one body in Christ.

Living Water Bible Study Group

The Living Water Fellowship started as a community outreach gathering back in 2005, most are young families with little children, we got to know each other thru special topics. At the beginning of 2006, a couple of us sensed the need of studying the word of God together consistently to help us grow spiritually and to share the truth of God with our friends in the Chinese community – thus born the Living Water Fellowship! As Jesus reminded us in the gospel John 4:10, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water." And also in 4:14, "but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." As well as in 7:38, "Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." Some seeker friends among us gradually came to know Christ and accepted Him as their personal savior thru the grace of God, the sharing of the word of God, and the caring from the brothers and sisters to make them feel like home again in the big family of God! Not only so, another amazing grace from God is the booming of babies – seven blessings have been born to their wonderful parents since 2006 with more on the way!

We meet on the first and thrid Saturdays of the month at member's house:
4:30 – 4:50 welcome & greetings
4:50 – 5:20 singspiration
5:20 – 6:30 bible study
6:30 – 7:00 sharing & praying
7:00 – 8:00 feast of love – dinner time

No matter where you're from, we'd like to invite and welcome you whole heartedly to join us in the family of God! To grow spiritually in the fellowship, to serve and to share the gospel with our seeker friends as in the book of Acts 2:46-47, "Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."

Pine & Cedar Fellowship Group

The main members of Pine & Cedar Fellowship are senior brothers and sister and the golden agers from the community. Basically, we meet once a month at 11:00 AM on the last Saturday of the month either at church or at the member's house. We sing hymns, listen to short messages, and participate in sharing – not just words but food for lunch as well! Sometimes we'll have outing or picnic. By these gatherings and activities, we hope to share God's love with the senior people in the community and help them to get to know and to believe our gracious Lord so that they may enjoy the blessings from our gracious Lord in their golden age.

As Proverbs 16:31 states, "Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained by a righteous life." As well as Psalm 65:11, "You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance."

Gospel Bible Study Group

Gospel Bible Study Group is a fellowship group in which we seek the truth and to know God via Bible study and testimonies sharing with one another. This group was established in the fall of 2007 and its antecedent was the previous DCCC Student Fellowship. We have both Christians and Gospel seekers in the group, and meet every Friday night from 7:30pm to 9:30pm at the church, although from time to time we meet at homes with love feasts. In addition, we have picnics and outdoor activities at various occasions. The basic content of a typical meeting consists of the 4-W themes in sequence as follows:

  1. Welcome: we welcome our brothers and sisters as well as Gospel seekers with God's all embracing love so that all feel at home.
  2. Worship: we begin our fellowship with a God-centered worship and praises to turn our eyes from the world to God.
  3. Word: we read and share God's Word in the group with an emphasis on the Gospel so that not only Gospel seekers may know the truth and God, but also Christian brothers and sisters may grow in Spirit and learn to live a godly life.
  4. Work: we practice our faith with actual work that has two facets. Internally, we learn to care and pray for one another in love and to share God's grace in our lives with one another. Externally, following the Great Commission we go out periodically in small groups to visit new friends, to share Gospel, and to lead people to the Lord.
