New Community UMC Celebrates 10th Anniversary
New Community United Methodist Church (UMC) in Oakhurst, CA, nestled in the foothills near Yosemite, will celebrate their 10th Anniversary on April 21 at the Oakhurst Community Park at 10 a.m. The celebration will include a worship service followed by a free barbeque as a way of the church saying "Thanks" to God and the community for ten years of living out God's love by embracing diversity, seeking justice, and changing hearts.
According to Pastor Helen Mansfield whose appointment to New Community began last summer, "That first worship service was high energy and this celebration in the park promises to be the same. There will be lots of music from SpiritBand, the popular group led by well-known local musician Kirk Moulin and his wife Monika, New Community's director of music. After worship, everyone is invited to stay for games and lots of great food and fellowship. You don't even need to be a Methodist to join us!"
Oakhurst Community Park is located at the south end of Highway 49 in Oakhurst, CA.
