On the evening of May 26, a day before the 16th anniversary of "the day of Family Church", Riverside campus held a special family prayer meeting. 

Jubilee Riverside worship team led members to have a joyful time of praising God together under the leadership of pastor Nathanael. Elim Riverside also invited Pastor Enya, the general secretary of Faith and Family Fellowship US region to deliver the sermon. Pastor Enya preached on the topic of "carry each other's burden" based on the scripture of Galatians 6:2.  This was to encourage husbands and wives to meditate more deeply as we celebrate "the day of Family Church" and the reason why God brings us into marriage and the meaning of practicing love in the gospel by learning the example that the Lord Jesus Christ has shown us.

After the sermon, families and single members prayed for one another in small groups according to their group number. Many shed tears during the prayer time as they shared their prayer topics and prayed together. May God bless all the families as well the members who are preparing to enter into marriage to fulfill their commission that God gave to them and glorify God's name.
