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!

An Important message from Pastor Steve Peralta:
Tuesday July 21, 2020
My Dear Church Family,
I am saddened to share that the Head of Wesley School, Mr. Ernie Levroney, passed away suddenly early Monday morning. In his short time at the school, we appreciated his presence, spirit, and vision. He was our friend, and we are still wrapping our hearts and minds around his sudden death. We will miss his warm smile and infectious laughter, as well as the kindness and friendship he extended to me and the staff of NoHo FUMC.
We ask that you would keep his husband, Fernando, in your prayers, as well as the Wesley School staff, faculty, and student body. Please pray for the church staff too, as I cannot begin to express our shock and our sadness.

Greetings in Christ,
Over the last few weeks, the numbers regarding Covid19 infections, hospitalizations, and deaths have been rising. I am proud that we, as a church, had already decided that we would refrain from re-starting in-person worship until we were comfortable everyone could be present. Unfortunately, it appears that we might be waiting longer than we originally anticipated. Governor Newsom has once again closed church worship services as several outbreaks were traced to church services. Our own Bishop, Rev. Dr. Grant Hagiya, has asked that we follow the guidance of the Governor and that we hold one another’s safety as a highest priority.
We were scheduled to have an All-Church meeting on Zoom this Wednesday, July 22nd, at 7:30 PM. In light of the latest developments, we will postpone this meeting until a date to be determined. We will continue to offer our online worship, fellowship, and Thursday Night Study. We will continue to do our best to be God’s people in a time when the world needs us.
Pastor Steve Peralta
