Season of Service


Partner, Serve, Change!

As we reach the final two weeks of this year's Season of Service, we are humbled to see the numbers continually grow in the 2014 Progress Report (See below!)

So far, 125 different churches have partnered with at least one other church, nonprofit, or civic agency to engage in community transformation. 1,943 individuals have served in 52 different projects all across the Sacramento region to meet tangible needs. Change has happened as 24,713 hours were collectively put into making the Sacramento region a better place to live!

Our Season isn't over yet! There are still dozens of projects in the upcoming weeks! Don't miss out on this movement of serving and loving our region in the name of Christ!

Day of Hope: Luther Burbank High School

The Day of Hope at Luther Burbank High School was an amazing day! Over 300 volunteers came out to serve, most of whom were students from Luther Burbank High School. The Day of Hope volunteers served the community with free haircuts, family portraits, food, face painting, groceries and entertainment. There was also a great children’s area complete with multiple bounce houses and interactive games for kids of all ages. Families left the Day of Hope with bags of groceries and smiles on their faces. Thank you Luther Burbank High School students, E49 Corporation, Restoration Life Church, and all other volunteers who were involved!

testimony from the children's area

"We made Gospel Bracelets with 60+ people and had 3 little girls who prayed to receive Jesus for the first time. Pray for Crystal, Aira, and Sharlia. Also, pray for a Muslim woman who came and made a bracelet as she listened to the Gospel presentation. She looked very thoughtful and she took the bracelet with her. I didn't get her name but God knows who she is. Pray that God works in her life and heart and that she comes to know Jesus as her Savior and Lord."

April 25th-May18th Serving Opportunity: "the 99"

Thousands of volunteers from over 56 churches across the region are serving together in a gospel saturation service event called "The 99". "The 99" is a walkthrough theater that graphically reenacts the five leading causes of death in teenagers and young adults, many of which are influenced by drugs or alcohol and can be avoided. The experience ends with a clear presentation of the gospel, followed by an opportunity for young people to give their lives to Christ by praying with an encourager. Each night there is a need for many encouragers to talk with and pray for the young people that go through the experience. You can be a part of "The 99" and help a young person make his or her first step in a relationship with Jesus Christ!

If you would like to volunteer, come out to the tent at Sunrise Mall at 5:30pm on Friday, Saturday or Sunday night to fill out an application and be trained for the night. "The 99" is open nightly from 7pm-9pm Friday-Sunday.
