In 1983, our denomination initiated a nationwide project to bring together churches of varied ethnic, racial and cultural backgrounds.  Partnerships of churches were formed throughout the country – our San Diego Partnership of UCC Churches is the only one still active.  Through these 40 years, we have worshiped together and shared special projects and activities.  To celebrate this 40th anniversary, we will have a celebration picnic at Mission Bay on Sunday, October 15 at 1-3 PM.  Hope you can join us!

Art Cribbs.
