Save the Date! Count Me In, Saturday April 22nd
Count Me In is a time when the Solano Church family gathers together to love our neighbors by serving them in their homes. It’s a great event to invite friends to who are outside of your church circle, and a great opportunity to love our city. Last October was our biggest Count Me In ever, with over 100 volunteers putting in over 400 man-hours of service. Put the date in your calendar now so we can keep that momentum! Sign up now!

Help serve the those in need in the East Bay.
As Jesus encouraged us to serve the poor & disenfranchised in our communities, Solano has for several years made homeless outreach a central part of our mission. As such, a year ago we helped establish Albany's free shower program for people experiencing homelessness. We are currently looking for occasional or regular volunteers to help with a variety of tasks on Thursday mornings (8-9am) OR afternoons (1-3pm) for sandwich prep, sandwich distribution, welcoming team, etc. For more details contact Evelyne St-Louis at

Exploring Christianity - From September 16 (newcomers welcome throughout the duration of the course)

Do you have questions about Christianity? Is there someone you know who would like a safe place to ask questions and learn the basics of the faith? Then join us for Exploring Christianity! We are meeting on Friday evenings this fall at 7pm. A meal is provided and there is a guided discussion on the core beliefs of Christians. Anyone who is curious about Jesus is welcome! We also encourage regular attendees of Solano to attend with a seeking friend. Contact Pastor Brent for more information and to sign up at
