This Sunday

Join us at California Heights United Methodist Church as we celebrate the Fourth Sunday in Lent on Sunday, March 19th at 10:00 AM.

Rev. Scott Andrews’ sermon title will be "Sent to See” from John 9:1-9.

Fire Within Us will share with us The Lord is My Light.

We hope to see you on Sunday!

California Heights UMC is at 3759 Orange Avenue, Long Beach.

Under Construction

The church kitchen remodel has begun! Construction crews have begun work and new appliances have been ordered and received. Be advised that there will be NO ACCESS to the kitchen while the work is going on. Crews may be using part of Hughes Hall (behind the partitions) as well. This project is being paid for with our Grace for All capital campaign funds. Stay tuned for updates!

Volunteer Training

Due to a scheduling conflict, we have had to move our training event to Sunday, April 22nd

There will be a training session for all of those interested in volunteering as a liturgist on Sunday mornings. Reading scripture, leading the invitation to worship, and other exciting opportunities await one and all who wish to help out on Sunday morning!

Sign up soon in the Narthex of the church. A limited number of spots are available.  ALSO, if you have already been serving as a liturgist, come to this event as well to gain more experience and meet our new crew of volunteer liturgists!

Our next session is at 10:00 AM on Saturday, April 22nd in the Sanctuary.
