Bible Study

We meet every Tuesday at noon for an hour via Zoom. If you would like to join us, let Pastor Janice know. She will send you the information for Zoom. And, if you are unable to join using a computer, you can call in just using your telephone. I think you’ll find these enjoyable.

Taco Tuesdays

We have been able to offer to our community Taco Tuesdays at the parking lot of First Congregational Church with Emilio’s Taco Truck. He is a self-employed cater and had been out of work since March 15th. We were so happy to help his family of six get a chance to work again. Plus, we are loving the delicious food.
We will continue to do Taco Tuesdays, 4:30 to 7:00 PM. Hope to see you there

Important message on Sunday’s Service

It’s official! Per Governor Newsom, we will NOT be having services Sunday! This came as we were about to make the announcement. Stay tuned for further developments – we will stream the message live on FB so you may make comments, [Eph 4:32] and it will be available on YouTube, “Tulare UCC” later.

Safety of our congregation

We take the spiritual and physical care of our congregation seriously. We will receive the offering at the back in the fellowship area either before or after the service. This will limit exposure that could be caused by passing it through the pews.
We will continue to have our fellowship time but will only use prepackaged items. Also, we are increasing efforts in sanitizing tables, counters, and have sanitizing gel at both entrances and on the pews. Although we will miss you, we expect that you will stay home if you feel ill but please, stay in touch with us.
Worry is not our friend, and panic is not our way. As people of faith, we will remain alert and respond appropriately. John 14:27.                                                                                                                                                                            Blessings Rev. Janice E. Hill

First Congregational Church of Tulare, United Church of Christ:  I’ve created a new YouTube channel as a contingency should we need to go virtual (and possibly viral – pun intended) with Janice’s sermons in light of social restrictions around Covid-19. The safety of our congregation, especially those at a higher risk, must be the number one priority. – Jason…/UCWFXWbijajQ5VMWnDKP…/featured
