200 Gather for First Bi-Lingual Worship Service at North Hills Mission

Six years since Sepulveda United Methodist Church formally closed, 200 gathered for the first bi-lingual worship service of the North Hills Mission on Sunday, November 22, 2015 at 5:00PM.

The worship was led in both Spanish and English. Also present were a group of Tongan Methodists who provided special music for the service.

Rev. Fred Morris, who is assigned to the Mission, noted that some of those present who were “lapsed Catholics” were awed by the United Methodist Church’s “open table” of Communion.

“I also explained that we do not block people because of an irregular marital status or for using birth control, etc. A number of them present commented on being allowed into communion,” said Rev. Morris.

Also present for this important service was North District Superintendent Rev. Jim Powell.

For the past year, the Mission has been holding a Spanish Communion Service every Sunday at 6:30AM. From this past Sunday forward, a bi-lingual service will be also held every Sunday at 5:00PM.
