Lake Park & Lake Merritt UMC Merger Celebration

Pentecost Sunday, May 19th

Join us as we celebrate this historic merger of our two significant churches and consecrate our ministry and mission before God with the blessing of our annual conference, churches, friends and families near and far. You will hear the stories of our two churches as we become one. Our own Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño will preach the sermon and bless our merger. Bay District Superintendent Rev. Sun Hee Kim will join and lead us.  Immediately after the service, you are invited to take a church photo in front of the church on Lakeshore Ave. Share this invitation with your family and friends!

The Pentecost Merger Celebration Worship service is on May 19th at 10:15 a.m. followed by a BBQ lunch gathering. The main BBQ will be provided by the church. We invite our church family to bring the sides, salads, and desserts for our fellowship lunch. Judi Fabrizio is helping organize the sign-ups for the potluck dishes.  Please read the information below and see Judi to sign up or ask any questions.

Pentecost Potluck Information

Dear Friends – I so appreciate your willingness to provide “Special Foods” for the Potluck along with the Barbecue. A couple of “helps” for me are:

  1. Label your container with your name (if you want it back).
  2. If you have a cake, pie or other item that needs to be divided, please cut before placing on the serving table.
  3. Everything needs to be Table Ready, sliced and covered (serving utensils will be supplied).

Here is a list of items being brought. If I have missed your dish or name, please let me know!  Thank you, thank you for making your “Special Dishes”!  –Judi Fabrizio
