HUMC Celebrates 150 years!


On January 14, 1869, the first Methodist service of Hollister was conducted.  We celebrated our 150th anniversary on Sunday, January 13th, with a visit from our Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño and District Superintendent Shinya Goto.  Our Pastor, Karla Lundin, led the worship and Bishop Carcaño gave the message.  Afterwards, we had a wonderful reception in our Social hall with delicious food, great friendship and joyful celebration.
