SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Francisco and Alicia Ramirez were honored with a gift and a cake at the recent 14th annual Conference of the Churches of Christ of Northern California.

Francisco and Alicia Ramirez cut a cake honoring their years of service.“They are pillars of the Iglesias de Cristo in Northern California,” said Laura Abello, using the Spanish term for Churches of Christ.

The lectureship for Spanish-speaking Christians drew 200 people to the Parkway Church of Christ, said Abello, church secretary and wife of elder/preacher Carlos Abello.
