Serving the Fatherless in our region

Fathers Day is this Sunday and some will celebrate this day with barbecues, sports and quality time with their fathers. But, many others have not had the opportunity to grow up with a loving father in the home. Some studies show that in urban areas of the Sacramento region, as many as 70% of young boys have no father to look up to, often from the beginning of their lives. I would like to invite you to Join Shoulder to Shoulder the ACTS Group, KLOVE/Air1 and William Jessup University for an inspiring evening of conversation that will help bring awareness of the depth of despair and hurt that revolves around fatherlessness, and the power of prayer and hope. Dr. John Jackson, Pastors Sam Rodriguez, Banning Liebscher, Francis Chan, Scott Hagan, Bishop Parnell Lovelace and many others will share live or on video about the impact of growing up without a father. Together, we can pray and respond to the issue of fatherlessness in our region. I hope you can join us.


Serving with you,

Upcoming Event: World Refugee Day Donation Pick up

World Refugee Day is Saturday, June 20th and you can get involved by donating house hold items to be picked up right at your door. Each year thousands of people flee persecution, violence and war for refuge in a foreign land. Many of these people escape with little more than the clothes on their backs and a select few refugees are resettled in the US. IRC, Opening Doors and World Relief help these refugees to restart safe and healthy lives in Sacramento. You can lend a hand by donating house-hold items to transform bare-bone apartments into safe, affordable homes.They will accept all house-hold items except mattresses and bed frames. Bikes are also welcome.


To donate, please contact Brittany Krol by email at brittany@openingdoorsinc.org or by phone (916)492-2591 ext. 219
