A liberal religious voice in the Central
Valley since 1953.
In November 2010, after seven years of continuous effort, constant frustration
and heroic fund-raising efforts, we dedicated our new classroom building.
Here it is. Note 1, the best pictures of a classroom have people in them, smiling
into the camera or doing interesting things with their hands. Getting such a
picture, and, for minors, permission from ALL of their parents to publish it,
is harder than you might think. Note 2, these are small (240x180) pictures. Click on "Bigger pictures"

Almost all of the building from the front. County fire regulations demanded
we install an 18,000 gallon water tank, on the right, because our property is
not served by a city fire main.
Helen Million and Kevin Lee, two of our members, spent many
hours transforming that water tank. (The picture above is "before";
this one is "after".) Helen and Kevin used silhouettes of our
children and tough, durable auto body paint to make an 18,000
gallon work of art. Helen is the lady standing in front of the tank.
Rev. Grace, our now (Oct 2011) retired minister, in the minister's office,
pretending to talk on the telephone to make the photographer
happy, on the day we dedicated the building. She was so delighted that
the building was finally there (She and two of our lay members did most
of the work and suffered most of the frustration) that she would have
pretended to juggle three scoops of chicken salad, had I asked.
Our nursery, "Peg's Room", named for UU Margaret "Peg" Gooding. Read more about Margaret Gooding.
We provide free child care during Sunday services and
for some other functions. The building has a large, sunny, well-equipped
nursery for children 4 and younger, staffed by friendly, competent ladies.
