christmas kickoff - Saturday, December 5

We love starting the Christmas season with decorating gingerbread houses! Our Christmas Kickoff celebration will look a little different this year, but we are determined to do it one way or another! We invite you to come for gingerbread house decorating outdoors on our plaza (weather permitting) at either 10am or 2pm on Saturday, December 5th! You can also come between 12-1pm to pick up a decorating kit to bring home. Gingerbread Houses are $20 each (includes some candy, houses will be pre-assembled). Ticket sales are open! Pasta A La Mode will also be on campus from 11am-2pm if you want to purchase delicious lunch!

toy drive - december 12

We are putting on a Toy Drive on Saturday, December 12th We are hoping to collect Christmas gifts for 250 kids in our community! These gifts will go to under-resourced families associated with the Sayonara Center in Citrus Heights, Northridge Elementary School, and Hope Church in Oak Park. Pick a gift category and purchase a gift or combination of gifts between $20-25. You can drop off unwrapped toys at church between 9am-noon and our team will be there to safely receive them, get them wrapped and ready to deliver by Christmas. This is another way we are reaching out to love our neighbors this holiday season so we invite you to participate.  If you have questions or want more information contact our Missions Director, Lauri Balbi.

volunteers needed at local distance learning centers

In this season of distance learning, some of our local ministry partners in Folsom, Citrus Heights and Oak Park have opened their facilities to students to provide support as they distance learn.
