The Congregation

We have been blessed by the dedication of our congregation members.  As members, the congregation commit their presence, prayers, offerings, service, and witness.  Attending week to week, members may preach and lead worship service, serve on boards and committees, teach Sunday School, serve the community, and offer prayers and support to others.  We are eternally grateful.

Fong Family
Inscription on Back:

Mrs. Fong and her three great grand children.  Mrs. Fong is one of our most faithful members.  When she was a small gril, she peeped in the doors of our mission in San Francisco.  The next day she went back and sat in the back seat.  then she kept going until the teacher saw her and invited her to come to the class.  She later married a minister. (c. 1933)
