Welcome to NoHoFUMC

Welcome to NoHo FUMC!

In a world that seems to accelerate with each passing day, do you need a place to decompress?  Do you need space to ask and discuss the bigger questions about life and purpose?  Would you like to find a way to serve the community?  Would you like to connect with God?

If you answered “Yes!” to any of these questions, then please stop by and meet us.  We offer two different Sunday morning worship services: 8:15 AM is a casual gathering in Boyer Chapel, with a rotating schedule of lay preachers and Pastor Steve bringing the message.  At 10:30 AM, we worship in the sanctuary where you will hear classic and new hymns led by the organ.  We do not have a dress code: people come in suits, in shorts, and everything in-between.  We look forward to meeting you, so come be our guest!

 Unfortunately all events planned for NoHoFUMC are cancelled until further notice but we are still here for our community. Please stay tuned, we hope to reschedule our Outdoor Market soon. The Easter service will be an online only service and there will be a Spring Festival at some point.

An Important message from Pastor Steve Peralta:

March 25, 2020

My dear church family,

In consultation with the District Superintendent, we regret that we will be cancelling any in person gatherings for Holy Week…and yes, this includes Easter Sunday.  We anticipate the current “safer at home” guidelines will continue to be in place for Californians until the beginning of May.

I cannot begin to express how sad I am that we will not be gathering together for Easter Sunday.  This will be the first Easter morning that I will not be gathering in church with my siblings in Christ to celebrate Christ’s resurrection in my entire life.  

However, I need to remind myself and you that regardless of where we gather or how we celebrate, Easter has not been cancelled.  We will still have our online worship and we will figure out how be a community that proclaims ‘Christ is Risen!”

I encourage you to join in with our online worship (posted on our YouTube account, link at www.nohofumc.org) and our virtual coffee fellowship on Zoom (you can download at www.zoom.us or from your mobile app store) at 11:30 AM on Sunday.  

This week’s Lenten Bible Study will cover chapters 13-15 in Adam Hamilton’s book Unafraid.  The Zoom meeting ID is 952 042 8113 and the password is unafraid.  The study will begin at 7:00 PM on Thursday, March 26th.

I hope that each of you has found patterns and strategies to weathering this time of social distancing.  Please know that you can reach me directly at steven.f.peralta@gmail.com or on my cell phone at 714-330-5347.  I continue to hold you all in my prayers.

Pastor Steve
