The First Congregational Church (UCC) in downtown Long Beach is one of the finest examples of Florentine Renaissance architecture in Southern California. The church building was dedicated in 1914 and declared an historical landmark in 1979. In late 2003, the church completed its new Pilgrim Hall, where the UUCF dinner meeting is being held. The new building was recently honored by the Long Beach Heritage historical society with its prestigious Preservation Award for outstanding architectural achievement and compatability with the existing historic church structures. On hand to welcome the UUCF group will be the church’s senior minister, Dr. Jerry Stinson, a noted social activist and proponent of liberal interfaith theology.
Cost for the Banquet is $25. Please make reservations by June 16 to Rev. Ron Robinson at RevRonRobinson@aol.com or 918-274-0105 or Kim Hampton at firstname.lastname@example.org or Barb Perry at email@example.com. We can add people after that, but we need a good headcount by then. Invite Colleagues, Friends, Family to come with you.
