40th anniversary celebration

We will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Atascadero United Methodist Church, which started gathering in Aug. 1979 at Chapel of the Roses in Atascadero. The church had no office, no building and no members, but now has a vibrate campus and congregation. If you’ve ever been a part of the church in its lifetime, you are invited to come and celebrate with us.
