Yule Tea by the Sea
This year we are celebrating our 75th year of incorporation as a church in the City of Palos Verdes Estates. One of the first buildings on the Peninsula, Neighborhood Church is historic. Our City is also celebrating it 75th year of incorporation. Yule Parlor Parade is the last event on the City’s 2014 celebration calendar.
Our church building was originally built in 1927 by John J. Haggarty. They had two other known homes in the greater Los Angeles/Long Beach area. As far as history can tell us, the Haggartys did not spend a lot of time at the Palos Verdes property. The young Neighborhood Church members found out about the properties pending sale, and in 1950, the lots and buildings were sold to the church for $60,000. Its members got busy and prepared the mansion for Sunday school and worship services. It’s doors opened for services as a church in 1952.
Our Church Historian, Fran Bock, will be in the Sanctuary to tell some stories and answer your questions. She has also prepared many photographic displays for your viewing. In addition, there will be a few docents available to guide you around the exterior of the property for more stories.
Visit our Yule Shop, Vintage Shop, and Bake Shop to top off your festive day. You will find one-of-a-kind hand-made crafts and holiday accents in our Yule Shop, scrumptious home-made baked goods in our Bake Shop, and fabulous treasures in our Vintage Shop.
