Upcoming Events

Staff-Parish Relations Committee
The Annual Meeting will be held on Sunday, November 12, right after the conclusion of service. We will be voting on the pastors’ salaries as well as the church officers and committee members for the upcoming year. As with any decision requiring a vote, the more members present, the better the community’s choices will be represented. We encourage everyone to attend and participate in the voting.

The SPRC’s (Staff Parish Relations Committee) meeting in November will be Thursday the 16th. Please contact us in advance so we can put you on the agenda.

The Friends Care Ministry will complete its 15th year in sharing God’s love through the obento program to our seniors and friends of UJCC with an average of 240-250 meals for pick-up, dine-in or delivery throughout Clovis, Del Rey, Fowler, Fresno, Kingsburg, Madera, Reedley, Sanger and Selma. This
ministry relies entirely on our generous supporters through donations of time, talents, food supplies and monetary gifts.

Friends Care will deliver obento to our seniors and friends on Friday, December 8th.
