Local gay-friendly church launches new website

Community United Church here in Fresno is a welcoming congregation that opens their doors and hearts to everyone. They recently launched a new makeover of their organizational website and we thought we’d give them a shout out.

The pastor is Rev. Julia Penner-Zook and here is video clip of her talking about finding community at UCC.

They gather for worship at 10:30 AM each Sunday. They are located at 5550 N. Fresno Street, Fresno, CA 93710. Communion is usually observed on the first Sunday of the month.

There are several local churches and communities of faith that welcome, affirm, and include LGBTQ+ persons of faith. I’m very proud of the different options folks have to join and fully participate in these various churches and I want to call out and give props to one in particular: Community UCC.

Community UCC is an inclusive and progressive Christian church doing social justice, environmental faithfulness, interfaith collaboration and spiritual formation to help ourselves and others grow in faith, hope and love.

Mission statement from their website

Community UCC as been meeting regularly throughout the pandemic via Zoom and their YouTube channel. Services begin at 10:35 every Sunday and last about one hour. Communion is observed the first Sunday of every month. This is hot off the press as well: In person services will resume in July!!!
