The Worship Planning Team put together a wonderful experiential worship service for Aug. 6, centering on the theme, “The Hope of Fresno.” Congregation members spent time during the service visiting various interactive stations. Thank you, Terry, for putting your beautiful photos together into this video.

Inhale Grace. Exhale Gratitude.

Our Sanctuary was ablaze with red on June 4, both in the vivid decorations of the church and in the dress of our members.

We welcomed five new members to our congregation. We broke bread together during communion, and following the service, we gathered for the annual meeting, where church members approved the budget for the 2017-18 year, and approved two other motions.

May the energy and vibrancy of yesterday’s worship carry us into this next week and into our church congregation’s next year of church life.

Inhale Grace. Exhale Gratitude.

We also need your help to set up the booth at about 8:00 a.m. and to take it down at 3:00p.m. It is a great and easy way to connect with the community and let everyone know that our church is Open and Affirming.
