I am sure the Chinese participants will contribute in cash.
No we do it in a Western way because our community in the church is made up mostly of foreigners from different parts of the world and Potluck is better because you can really see the effort and thoughtfulness of each and everyone by cooking their own specialties of food and desserts. Potluck is also a good way for people to taste different kinds of foods from different countries as we are all foreigners.

I suppose most of the Chinese church goers are single, and probably women.
Singles in big cities of China often live in small dorms/apartments without a real kitchen. It is very hard to cook something serious. Not to mention many young women in China cannot cook at all. Those "only children" do not do anything at home.

Yes they are mostly single.
Most young women cannot cook at all ? Why ?

As you know, schools in China are very intense, and they have no time to learn to cook. Their parents do not want them to do that either, since they only have one child.
University students all live in dorms, and there is no way and no need to cook.

So, before getting married, they do not really have the motivation to cook.

Too much time spent building a more competitive economy.

There is a Chinese church a few blocks from where I live. Most of the people at this church are people of various Chinese nationalities that settled in the area around the time of the tech expansion of the late 90s. Out of hundreds of folks, there seems to be less than a handful that doesn't explicitly fit their demographic. I've noticed at most of the events (that I've been dragged to) they always seem to run out of food early. There are definitely a noticeable number of Chinese people that go out of their way to bring an excessive amount of food, drink, etc., ... That being said there is a much higher percentage that seems to go out of their way to leech.

It's non-denominational. Although I would say the focus is on the "Chinese" part, and not on the "church" part. My guess is about 85% of the people there don't know and don't care about not knowing anything about religion, etc.

Here's 2 of the Filipino traditional games for kids during bday & fiesta party

Pukpok Palayok similar to Piñata and Pabitin
(where they usually put some candies and goodies for kids inside the palayok (pot) with
some flour & you have to hit that pot to break and they will grab the goodies in pabitin)
