Serving Sacramento year round

We love seeing the results of what can happen when hundreds of churches serve together for a season! But how can churches and individuals serve year round? How can people find opportunities to meet immediate needs and develop courageous, long term solutions that show measurable results year after year? This newsletter is dedicated to introducing you to a great new way to discover opportunities to serve the Sacramento region year round as well as a few upcoming summer events you don't want to miss!

Thank you for continually serving,

Megan McCleary

Serve Sacramento Director
