University A.M.E. Zion Church celebrated its annual Men's Day on Sunday, May, 17. Men of all ages and backgrounds came out to worship and praise the Lord! We saw men lead in every facet of our Sunday service from welcoming people, ushering, taking photographs, leading the music, working the media and much more. Men's Day 2015 was the start of a new level of ministry for the men of University!

University was happy to host its annual Greek Sunday celebration on April 12. We were honored to have representatives from Alpha Phi Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Omega Psi Phi, and Alpha Kappa Alpha join us for worship and fellowship. We celebrated the rich history of these fraternities and sororities with presentations from Regina Wallace-Jones of Delta Sigma Theta, and Jim White of Omega Psi Phi.
We were blessed to have an uplifting worship service in which Pastor Smith preached the sermon "A Few Good Men." After the service everyone had a great time hanging out in the courtyard. We look forward to next year’s Greek Sunday!
“The Church is the Church only when it exists for others...not dominating, but helping and serving. It must tell men of every calling what it means to live for Christ, to exist for others.”
- Dietrich Bonhoeffer
We mourn the tragic deaths of Mike Brown and Eric Garner and the subsequent injustice in the criminal case against the police officers who's actions led to their deaths. As a believers in Christ, it is our duty not to sit idle as we see this kind of injustice being done in the world. We need to show our solidarity and we need to be intentional in our prayers to God to address these tragedies. Our first step is for everyone to wear all black to church on December 14th for "National Black Solidarity Sunday." We will stand with entire AME Zion Church, along with AME, CME, Progressive Baptist, Black Presbyterian, COGIC, Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship, PAW and College of Bishop in this action. Tomorrow you will stand with millions of other Christians of many different denominational & racial backgrounds in declaring to the world that "Black Lives Matter"

The members at University were instrumental in providing boxes of food to dozens of families. University partnered with the Ecumenical Hunger Program in East Palo Alto. The Missionary's at the church held a canned food drive and donated 100's of cans to EHP. So far, EHP has provided over 700 boxes of food to families in need this holiday season. If you would like to donate to the Ecumenical Hunger Program, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
