_DSC0004

You will be magically taken back 2014 years at Memorial on Saturday and Sunday, December 13 and 14 between 6 and 8 pm as Memorial United Methodist presents its sixth annual Christmas Card to the Community featuring six inspiring scenes narrated by Newell Knudson, live performers and music.

The 20-minute walk with a shepherd guide takes the path back to Bethlehem to celebrate the true meaning of Christ’s birth.  Bring your kids and grandkids to share in this homegrown celebration of Christmas and join in singing Christmas carols and warm up with hot beverages and snacks.

It’s all free and runs two nights Saturday, Dec. 13th, and Sunday, Dec 14th, from 6-8 pm – rain or shine.  Parking is in the lot entered from Scott Avenue.  As you approach from the west parking lot (off of Scott Ave.), the Centurion will greet you to get you started on a wonderful journey through time

Lenten Study 2014

24 Hours That Changed the World
– A study by Adam Hamilton

Adam Hamilton delivers solid scholarship describing how the day of Christ’s crucifixion unfolded. It also suggests that our response to Christ’s work – when it appears evil has the upper hand – can be one of courageous hope and great courage. Click here for summary and reviews.

This study will follow Adam Hamilton’s book, the 40 Days of Reflection devotional guide, and will incorporate his videos.  Click here to see introductory video.

Classes will begin with the beginning of Lent on March 9.  Class times:

  • Sundays, 11 am
  • Sundays 5:45 pm. Multiple classes in English & Hmong languages.
  • Wednesdays, 7:30 am at Denny’s at Shaw and Willow.
  • Thursdays, 6 pm

Other class days and times will be determined on class leaders and your preferences.  Call the office, 559-299-4615 with your preference.  Check back later for more class listings.

Watch the Packing of 121,422 Meals!

October 20, 2013

This was a huge community event organized by Memorial and Stop Hunger Now.  121,422 meals were packed.  Each meal bag serves 6 meals and costs us 25 cents per meal – $30,000. We had no idea, at the time,  that our packaged meals would be desperately needed in the Philippines. Donations are still being accepted. ALL donations will go to the food purchase. Memorial keeps none of it.

Click here to open YouTube for the video.

Play time: 10:58

Update, January 2014:  Thank you! Your donations have paid for the food purchase in full!

New Year’s Eve Party!

7 pm in the Social Hall.
