Broadway On Van Ness



The March 16th Broadway on Van Ness is fast approaching and a dedicated planning committee headed by Ben Ewell is preparing an evening of genuine hospitality and Broadway greats by the Fresno Grand Opera.  This annual collaboration with the FGO is an important fundraiser for our church.  Our challenge is to meet the $14,000 goal.

We need your help to be a part of our 2014 success.


First, be a sponsor to provide the resources and give the committee the confidence to plan the “gala” this event expects.  The Silver Level starts at $100 up to Diamond at $1,000.  Sponsors are our silent angels!


Second, donate a valued silent auction item and advertise in the Program Book. Our decorated Social Hall comes to life when the doors open with tasty hospitality and the diverse Silent Auction. Your sponsorship, donation or advertisement is acknowledged in the professionally prepared program book.  This all adds to the anticipation of the intimate performance in our Sanctuary.


Third, help us sell tickets.  Buy a ticket and sell a ticket.  This is a true $40 value.  This event showcases the fun of FCCF. Go Broadway!

Stewardship Thoughts

STEWARDSHIP THOUGHTS-Ruth Gadebusch, chairperson

 We get to dream, thus expressing our GOOD FAITH INTENT, as the dollars we expect to give to our church’s budget.  Whether it is called a pledge, a commitment, a faith promise, an estimate of giving, or something else, it matters not.  This is the time for us all to prayerfully consider the various ways I can give toward keeping this wonderful church serving us and our community in God’s way.


Accordingly, please fill out the estimate of giving/pledge card you recently received and return it to the church office so that plans can be put in place for another wonderful year at First Congregational Church of Fresno, United Church of Christ.   We get to do something very, very special- we get to plant dreams, nurture them, and see what surprising gifts grow from believing “we can do this.”
