Season of Service
Season of Service is in full Swing!
Rain or Shine, region churches have been going out to show Christ's love in tangible ways through displaying his heart through service. Read below to see what churches have been up to, what churches have planned for the month of April, and how YOU can get involved!
Stories of Service: Love Roseville Schools
Last Saturday, about 100 volunteers from 10 churches got up early and braved the wind and rain to serve at 7 local Roseville elementary and middle schools. Several indoor projects were completed, mostly painting and beautification projects. It was great to see individuals from different churches work side by side to make local schools a better environment for our children! Churches are making plans to finish outdoor projects at 13 schools once the weather permits. Thank you to all the churches and volunteers who were involved!
April 4th-5th: iCare Davis
