Volunteer Opportunities

There is always a lot going on in our local community, and a lot that we can do for those in need in Folsom and surrounding areas.  While missional living includes what we do at home, at school, in our workplaces, and even on the road, it also includes what we do in our community.  Here are some opportunities that may fit with your gifts:
