Our Fellowships

Student Fellowship

All over North American college campuses, the good news of Jesus Christ has reached numerous Chinese students for many decades. Here in Syracuse God’s love and grace has been present in the SU and ESF campuses since the 1960’s, if not earlier. Many found Jesus Christ during the years studying here and left ‘Snow City’ with a warm heart and new life, in addition to their education and diploma.

In the past 3 years, we have seen the number of Chinese undergraduate and graduate students increased tremendously. They arrived here with great expectation, enthusiasm as well as perhaps a mixture of uncertainty and yearning to find the truth and meaning of life. Seeing this, God moved in the hearts and minds of several Chinese Christian families worshiping at Eastern Hills Bible Church and Syracuse Alliance Church to start a new home-based ministry to serve the large influx of these precious young men and women from our home country, as well as those working professionals living in the Syracuse area. The first student group meeting started, interestingly, on 11/11/11. This ministry is part of the Syracuse Chinese Christian Church.

In the student fellowship, we study God’s word, the Bible, so that we know who God is and what is His will for our life. We meet regularly every Friday evening in the homes of Christians (although it is entirely your decision how often you would like to attend) where we share a hearty home-made dinner first, followed by singing several songs or hymns. We then divide into 2 or 3 smaller groups to read selected story or passage from the Bible or watch an interesting movie, followed by discussion and sharing of our questions, insights or understandings, in order to explore God’s message to us. We also can share our personal dreams, frustrations or hopes about academics, careers, marriage or other issues in life. We learn to approach and pray to God as our heavenly father and what Jesus had done for us. The story of ‘Emmanuel’, which means ‘God is with us’ through the person of Jesus, is never too old and is forever life-giving. Our prayer is that we will all seek God with a sincere heart, to find and receive Him into our life. We hope our student group is the kind of Christian fellowship where you can approach and experience the love of Jesus, explore the truth and life in Him and eventually walk life’s path with Him till eternity, full of faith, hope and love.

Family Fellowship

Jesus is our forever friend.  We can pour out our heart to him and be heard any time.

We come together every Friday night to learn God’s words, pray for each another, and build connections in love.  It is not just a belief that our holy God exists, but more essentially the lived experience that our God is truly a living God!  With grateful and modest hearts, we are eager to be enriched from inside and learn about our life savior more and more day by day. In this big family, we help and encourage each other, leave the impress of heaven on the lives of one other; we experience God’s grace, bring glory to GOD, and spread gospel together. We sincerely welcome you and your family to join our fellowship.

Youth and Children Ministries

Jesus loves all the children of the world. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” [Matthew 19:14]

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.  [1 Timothy 4:12]

We teach, encourage, and shape our youth and children based on God’s words for them to become God’s elite and love God and neighbors.
