A Region that Serves

It is always a privilege for me to share stories of service happening across our region! Last Saturday many churches, businesses and community agencies shared God's love with families in the Oak Park community through Day of Hope. Each week, ATLAS of Carmichael mentors individuals one on one for holistic transformation in the Carmichael community. You can read their stories below! If you are aware of a story of service that you think should be shared, please let us know about it!

Also in this newsletter are upcoming conferences in our region that you do not want to miss. How privileged we are to have opportunities to be trained up to serve God through serving our city!

Grateful to live in a region that serves,

We are rejoicing in the encouragement, growth, and conversations that happened last Thursday at our region's very first Q Commons Sacramento Amazing National talks by Tim Keller and Ann Voskamp and local talks by Scott Hanson, Kataro "Taro" Arai and a panel of speakers on church-school partnerships challenged all who attended to intentionally pursue ways to advance good in our region. A huge thank you to all who came out to join the conversation.

Mark Your Calendars! The next Q Commons will be on February 26th 2015 at Tower Theater. You won't want to miss it!

Stories of Service: Day of Hope in Oak Park

Hundreds of volunteers came together on October 11th to bless the families that attend American Legion High School and Father Keith B Kenny Elementary School at Sacramento's Day of Hope in the Oak Park community. This collaborative effort of over 9 churches, local businesses and community agencies put smiles on many faces as families were provided with hair cuts, groceries, lunches and clothing - all free of charge. Live music and a Kids Zone added to the fun and festivities and a prayer tent provided a place for families to receive spiritual encouragement and prayer. Sacramento Day of Hope is an outreach of E49 Corp. and is implemented several times each year in communities of need in the greater Sacramento area. Thanks to everyone who came out to share Christ's love with the Oak Park community!
