On Friday, December 5th we are the receiving end of the 27th Annual AIDs Posada procession! The parade starts at the Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic at 6pm and runs easterly along Sunset Boulevard, making several stops along the route to sing the traditional song and hear speakers. At Alvarado, the procession turns north and arrives at the gate of the Echo Park United Methodist Church (sometime after 7pm), where a gathering will accept the pilgrims in with song and hot pozole. A healing liturgy and entertainment will round out this festive event. Join us!
It is November of 2014, and a lot is going on at Echo Park UMC! All month, we are collecting non-perishable foods to fill our Native American ministries food pantry. Bring them in on any Sunday in November, and put them on the altar during offering time, so we can bless them. On Sunday, November 16, the United Methodist Women are holding a Packing Party after church to prepare the Christmas gift shoe boxes for needy families around the world.
On Friday December 5, we will be the Inn that welcomes Mary and Joseph at the end of the Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic AIDs Posada! Singers are needed to sing The Posada Song at our gate, and volunteers are needed to represent the church during the serving of the holiday meal (pozole and tamales- yum!).
On Saturday December 13, we will be marching in the Echo Park Community Holiday Parade! Break out your jingle bells and Santa hats and join us for a wonderful family event.
