Food Pantry Donations

We collect non-perishable food pantry donations and travel-sized toiletries on Sunday, July 21. We will collect and dedicate them during the service and then take the donated food to the South Sacramento Interfaith Partnership’s Food Closet and the toiletries to Wind Youth Services during the week.

Choir Rehearsal

The Pioneer Choir presents music of a great variety of styles – Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony, traditional spirituals, brand-new choral anthems, and more. Rehearsals are at 6:30 on Thursdays in our choir room. New singers are welcome anytime. Music-reading skills are helpful, but not required. The choir will be out for the summer beginning on June 2 and will return on Sunday, September 1.

Bell Choir Rehearsal

Pioneer Bells rehearses on Tuesdays at 6:30 in our choir room, and presents some of the rich repertoire of music for bell choir in worship services – and occasionally in front of the church, serenading Sutter’s Fort Park!
