Mayor Bill Harrison together with a group of City Officials including Councilmember Suzanne Chan, Raj Salwan, Planning Commission Chair Roman Reed and Commissioner Ripple Leung celebrated the opening of Fremont Arise Church on January 12.
The Church former known as Fremont Chinese Evangelical Free Church was established and located at Bridges Community Church for 18 years. Due to the growth of the congregation and in increasing need of space, the Church acquired the current premise with a total footprint of 26,000 sq. ft. in 2011. The Church is now ready to use the newly renovated space of 15,600 sq. ft. in the initial phase, and the remaining space will be utilized as needed for future growth.
Renamed Arise Church, the church is ready to establish its own identity, expand to a new horizon in cultivating spiritual growth, providing support to ones in need and tend to the disadvantaged.
The church has 275 people in its congregation, including youth and has expanded into an English Sunday service and ministry at the new location for the English speaking community in addition to the existing Cantonese service. Sunday services are held at 10:15 a.m. at 42828 Albrae St., Fremont. Visit http://www.arisechurch.us for more information.
