Season of Service

2014

Justice Conversations and Conference!

Two great events this week stirred hearts and conversations towards various themes of Justice. On Wednesday evening, many gathered for the Serve Sacramento/E49 Mixer at Suite 2:10 to hear from a panel on the topic of Sexual Exploitation/Trafficking. We heard from local organizations who are doing great things to help fight this issue and were given tangible ways the Church can get involved. On Friday and Saturday, a live simulcast of the Justice Conference in LA was hosted at William Jessup University. We heard from leading global justice advocates, as well as two local voices for justice, John Jackson and Rev. Samuel Rodriguez. God has stirred believers and educated our minds to better engage our region for kingdom transformation that reflects God's heart of justice!

Stories of service: Oak Park Day of Hope

On August 24th 2013, more than 300 volunteers and multiple area churches served more than 1600 guests in the heart of Oak Park in Jesus name! This event was E49 and Day of Hope's first community based event in partnership with the Sacramento City Unified School District. Families from Father Keith B. Kenny Elementary School and American Legion High School were blessed with food, entertainment, a kids carnival, clothing, shoes, kids games, haircuts by Paul Mitchel, prayer and groceries. They were also able to collect enough funds to gift KBK with sports equipment for their school and, thanks to Center of Praise Ministries, uniforms for the new school year! What a great way to get to know and love your neighbors!


E49's Day of Hope is making plans to take this model of community specific days of service to other communities in need within our city and region. The next Day of Hope is scheduled for April 24th, 2014 and will be a Luther Burbank High School in the Downtown area. If you would like more information about this upcoming event, please visit Day of Hope's website here!
