Our new Fellowship Hall was funded by the sale of Gardena First’s church and buildings. Their campus was a center of activity and help for the neighborhood. One of their most noticeable and impactful ministries was Master’s Kitchen which served meals for those in need. It is our wish to continue this vital service for our neighbors. For more information, contact Barbara Takumi at email@example.com.
Master’s Kitchen April 29, 2017, 75 guests, 64 workers with compassionate hearts and willing hands!

Corazon Christmas Party 2016:
Faith United Methodist Church and Redondo Beach UMC once again helped to create a joyous Christmas party for Corazon members in Mexico. On Saturday, December 3, 2016, 578 Mexican Corazon members and about 50 volunteers from the United States celebrated the completion of another year of work in the seven Corazon communities in Tijuana and Tecate, Mexico. At Salon Mezzanine, the party site, the participants entered the front lobby, then had family photos taken with Santa.
The participants were then ushered into a large room set with round tables for ten and shown to their assigned table. The children went into another very large room to play games.
While the children were playing games the adults were dancing or listening to music. We all gathered in the dining room for a delicious lunch of tamales, refried beans, macaroni salad, and cake. Participant names were called for the raffle ticket winners and sponsor names were called for pinatas made by the participants.
After lunch games and dancing continued. The party closed at 3 pm with all of the Corazon Mexican participants receiving their bags containing their family gift, their children’s gifts, the bag of toiletries prepared by the FUMC Primetimers and a bag of candy. They will also all receive their family photo with Santa.
Thank you all from both churches who helped with your financial contributions, your raffle, family and children’s gifts, your labor and all the many things you did to contribute to making this another memorable event. This was truly an example of God’s love expressed through human love.
