The only other name floated for our congregation had “Nikkei” (meaning “people of Japanese ancestry”) in it. It was not well-received and here we are now, as United Japanese Christian Church!
Our name is proudly proclaimed on this sign (pictured here with the Welcome Committee and friends), made years ago for a float in a downtown parade. It’s been used in recent years in the Chinese New Year Parade! When it’s not in marching around downtown, you may have noticed it hung in the Fellowship Hall.
