Stories that shine the spotlight on god
Do you have a story about service that you would like to share with the Serve Sacramento community? Let us know by responding to this message! God's reputation in bettered in our region when people see and hear about the way those who love God are mobilized to compassionate action. It is a privilege to share these stories of service each week and it is my prayer that when you read these stories, your response is to stop, smile, and say a prayer to God thanking him for the way he is living and active where we live and work. Please keep the stories coming so we shine the spotlight on God's work through God's people in our region!
Serving with you,
Serve Sacramento Director

PATH met monthly to discuss an action plan to help people in Rancho Cordova who are struggling with obtaining and keeping housing. After meeting for some time, PATH decided they could help Rancho Cordova homeless during the winter season with a rotating shelter program. [read more]
