San Francisco, CA - Beginning on Saturday of this week, First Chinese Baptist Church will hold its 125th Anniversary Celebration in San Francisco Chinatown on Oct 7, 8, and 9, 2005.
The celebration will be a time when the entire church will rededicate their lives once again to Christ and His mission. The weekend schedule consists of rededication on Friday, Homecoming on Saturday where there will be historica exhibit, culture fair, tour of Chinatown, anniversary gift shop, and anniversary banquet, and on Sunday there will be outdoor worship, so the roads will be blocked off, and a luncheon will be held afterwards at the Four Seas Restaurant, Chinatown.
The worship service will feature different kinds of music programs that includes Chinese drums and their church handbell.
Rev. Don Ng, senior pastor of FCBC described the symbolic meaning of having the all church outdoor worship service.
"As a church in Chinatown, we wish to get out of our church and be outside. We plan to demonstrate in fact that we are people that are willing to reach-out to neighbor in the name of Christ," said Rev. Don Ng.
