Season of Service
partner serve change
What would happen...
What would happen if every public school in the Sacramento region entered into a partnership with one or more area churches who are engaged in the success of the teachers, students and their families? Since December, a task force of church, school and non profit leaders have come together to think through what it might look like to see partnerships like this happen all across the region. We are calling this endeavor, Every School Partnership.
A kick-off event is planned for February 5th at the Guild Theater in historic Oak Park with the premiere of the documentary "Undivided", the true story of a church that unites with at-risk Roosevelt High School to create a beautiful transformation for students, the school and the volunteers serving it.
Serve Sacramento would love to invite you come and bring others who may be interested in hearing about church/school partnerships. There will be refreshments, a panel of local church and school leaders, and we will hear from Jeff Martin, the producer of "Undivided". Tickets are required and are available here! and you can view the trailer below:
Serving with you,

Season of Service update!
Story of Service: Volunteer day at Fourth & Hope
On Monday, January 19th, about 70 volunteers from Woodland Ecumenical Ministries, Friends of the Mission, the International Visitor Leadership Program and the Woodland community came out to celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. through a volunteer day at Fourth & Hope, an organization that offers shelter, meals, rehabilitation and job training to people in need in Yolo County.
Volunteers tackled several projects including the beautification of the grounds surrounding the Fourth & Hope facilities, carpet cleaning and blind removing, reorganizing the storage area, organizing items for the Fourth & Hope Thrift Shop and pressure washing throughout. People who are participating in the programs of Fourth & Hope also lent a hand and served alongside their community members. The service projects ended with a church service held at Second Baptist Church.
Thank you to everyone from the Woodland community and abroad who came out to serve in unity and to share hope with those in need! To find out more about the ministry of Fourth & Hope, check out their website here!
