MULTIPLY YOUR LIFE BY MAKING AND MATURING OTHER DISCIPLES.
Here are some ways to get going at Solano...
Agape Team Ministries provide opportunities to serve our local community.
Count Me In
Mission Statement: Bringing the good news of Christ to our neighbors by serving their needs.
What We Organize: Service projects to people in the community that need help taking care of their homes, whether because of age, illness, injury, or any other reason. We mobilize the entire church to serve twice a year in the spring and in the fall, but also take on individual projects as they arise throughout the year.

Mission Statement: Our mission is to help the hurting and restore human dignity in Jesus’ name as a church community.
What We Organize: Volunteer opportunities through Support Circle Pregnancy Clinics to help women, men and children facing unplanned pregnancy and abortion. We also fight sex trafficking by helping the Marist Missionary Sisters put up posters in businesses in Alameda County that are required by law and which provide hotline services to help trafficked women.

Homelessness and Poverty
Mission Statement: Our mission is to follow Jesus’ example to show the love of God in tangible ways to our neighbors experiencing homelessness and poverty. We do this by working together as a church and by partnering with local nonprofit groups in our communities. Out of the recognition of being children of God, we are all equal and all in need. The goals of this ministry are to grow our compassion and understanding towards the homeless and poor, and to act to help.
What We Organize: Volunteer opportunities and donation drives through CityTeam Oakland and the Albany DHWG (Albany Diverse Housing Working Group). Past and ongoing opportunities to serve: Turkey Drive, Adopt A Family Christmas Drive, DHWG Shower Program and Sandwich Distribution every Friday, Quarterly CityTeam Hope Cafe Dinner, Neighborhood Church Monthly Homeless Breakfast every 4th Saturday.

What We Organize: weekly Thursday dinners, hikes, small group discussions, and holiday parties
