The Weekly


stay in the loop

This is the place for your weekly update! Find out what's going on in the life of our church and stay informed with current announcements. This is to help connect you with the ministry of Fair Oaks Church.
Feel free to reach out and contact us if you have questions!

Yes, we're open sundays!

8:30a & 10a - in person and online

We are now open for in person Sunday worship services indoors, and will continue to take safety measures for those meeting on our church campus. We are excited to worship together in the Worship Center and offer programs for kids (babies-5th grade) and students! If you want more info about what to expect for in person services or how you can worship with us online, learn more below.

UPDATE: Due to the  increase of local COVID cases, high transmission rate of the delta variant, and CDC and Sac County guidelines, we are strongly recommending everyone (2+) wear masks while indoors starting Sunday, August 1st. We believe this is the best way we can be lovingly considerate of one another and the least disruptive solution that allows us to continue to gather safely and responsibly.

Current Series

God With Us

We invite you to join us for our Advent series, God With Us! We are in a time where, perhaps more than ever, we need to be reminded of Immanuel: God's presence WITH us no matter what! Join us as we journey through advent, rediscovering hope, peace, joy and love WITH us through Jesus himself. We'll be learning from Matthew's account of Jesus' birth and explore the comforting truth that He is with us always!

christmas kickoff

We are kicking off the Christmas season with fun holiday festivities! Everyone is invited to join us for a family-friendly worship service at 10a in the Worship Center, followed by lunch and gingerbread house decorating in the Family Life Center at 11am. This is a special Sunday because everyone gets to worship together - all ages, all kids and all generations!  Note: This is the same day as the California International Marathon. There will be road closures, but Fair Oaks Blvd. will be open in time for our service at 10a. View the map below to see alternate route.

christmas jazz concert

Fair Oaks Church is hosting the talented Jim Martinez Jazz Quartet and special guests, who will be performing the festive holiday music from A Charlie Brown Christmas. Admission is free, but there will be a freewill offering taken to benefit the musicians. This is going to be a fun community event that all are welcome to attend!

holiday outreach opportunities

We're doing a toy drive to provide local kids with Christmas gifts this year! Pick a toy category, and bring unwrapped gifts on 12/11 between 9am-Noon or on 12/12 during worship services. We'll be wrapping and delivering gifts to kids affiliated with Northridge Elementary, Sayonara Center, and One Church/City of Refuge in Sacramento. Thanks for being generous this holiday season!
The last week of the year we are opening our church facilities to host the homeless in our community. This is a perfect opportunity for you and your small group/family to serve and love others during the holiday season. We'll need a volunteers to help greet, cook, clean, do laundry and spend the night with our guests! Sign up here or click the button below to learn more.
