Bayside Church of Granite Bay holding Easter Sunday services at mall

Bayside Church of Granite Bay holding Easter Sunday services at mall

This year Bayside Church of Granite Bay is holding Easter Sunday services at the Galleria Mall in Roseville, instead of at the church.

Nearly 10,000 people are expected to attend Easter services at an outdoor stadium normally set up for tennis matches in the Nordstrom parking lot. Bayside will host two services (9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.) on Sunday April 20 and feature nationally known artist David Garibaldi, author and speaker Francis Chan and music led by recording artist and Bayside Worship leader Lincoln Brewster.

During the services, attendees will be able to sign-up for Bayside’s second ever “Serve Day,” a program designed to serve those in our community by painting, cleaning, building and generally helping thousands in need within across the greater Sacramento region. Last time, Bayside shut its doors so nearly 10,000 volunteers could serve at more than 120 projects. Serve Day 2014 will be held May 24 and 25.

La-Z-Boy Owners Donate Furnishings to Youth Organization in Natomas

The owners of the La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries recently donated more than $10,000 in home furnishings to the Success Academy -- Juveniles At Risk (JAR) program, a non-profit organization in Sacramento that serves needy youth and young adults. JAR, established nearly 12 years ago as a resource for at-risk youth, recently opened two townhomes in Natomas to provide emancipated young men (ages 18-to-24) with transitional independent living. The recent donation by La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries included a sofa, sleeper sofa, rocker recliner, two occasional table sets, entertainment units, art, rugs, lamps and silk plants.

“We are grateful that our 30 years of success in the Sacramento area allows us to ‘give back’ to the community--especially to those who might need a little extra comfort,” said Liz Reego, co-owner of La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries.  “If living in a beautiful environment provides happiness, then it’s worth the effort.”
