Saratoga Federated Church

SFC Serve Week

Instead of Serve Sunday, we are hosting Serve Week. This will allow for projects to be done on your schedule and without any "gatherings" that might pose a health risk to you or to others. We host Serve events periodically because we want to Love Our Neighbors, and encourage others to do the same, with tangible acts of service. Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up for one or more openings. And INVITE A FRIEND to sign up also. Thank you!
