Serve United

A strategic organization of the ACTS Group

Thank you for serving!

It has been a great last few weeks of service for the Greater Sacramento Region! On September 16th, thousands of residents from the city of Folsom served over 40 single day projects of need in their community. On October 7th and 8th, over 8,000 people from Bayside Church in Granite Bay and its surrounding campuses served over 32,000 hours in projects all across the region to support schools, non-profits, and other entities. Last Saturday thousands of runners and walkers came out to support the Break Free Run, an awareness and fundraiser effort of 3 Strands Global working to prevent and educate young people against sex trafficking communities locally and abroad. These large scale efforts do not discount the thousands of unseen mentoring and tutoring sessions with children, church services with folks in retirement communities, meals shared with refugee families, and groceries distributed to people in need every day from ordinary people. In this overwhelming time of pain, fear and loss, people are making a difference in our world by making the world better for others. If you are one of the many people who chose to serve your neighbors the last few weeks, Serve United would like to say THANK YOU for making our community a better place to live!

Church Volunteer Network helps others serve

Church Volunteer Network, a ministry that shares the gospel of Jesus Christ with vulnerable populations in Sacramento, has begun to support other ministries in our region through a new initiative called the Gospel Project Support Fund. CVN has had a successful first round of Gospel Project Support Funding, awarding two grants in the amount of $1,000 each to Powerhouse Ministries in Folsom and City of Refuge Sacramento for fall outreach events in the Greater Sacramento Region. Powerhouse Ministries will be throwing a Thanksgiving Dinner and sharing the gospel with families in Folsom and City of Refuge will be throwing a party for girls in low-income areas and communicating their worth through an event called Sisterhood. Congratulations to these two organizations! CVN will continue to help give funds towards entities that desire to share Christ and meet needs within the Greater Sacramento region.
