Serve with Sierra Service Project

Sierra Service Project, or SSP, provides service opportunities during the summer and school year for middle and high school youth groups. SSP is:

During the 2015 summer, SSP hosted 1,757 volunteers. They worked together to complete 94 projects which included replacing 9 failing roofs, constructing 10 brand new wheelchair ramps, and painting 17 homes. The Episcopal church was well represented with 210 of those volunteers coming from Episcopal churches or Dioceses.

Kim Furnari is the youth leader at Faith Episcopal Church in Cameron Park, CA. She has organized and led her church’s youth group for the past seven years to one of Sierra Service Project’s summer sites and is currently serving on SSP’s Board of Directors. She says that she and her youth love to keep going back to SSP because “you don’t need to bring any tools, materials, or even construction knowledge. SSP takes the stress of planning the projects right off of your shoulders.” Furnari is also impressed with the caliber of projects they complete saying that “the work we do is important and needed, and the youth love it.”

SSP is committed to providing safe, accessible, and affordable programs for youth to deepen their relationships with God and others through service. SSP trips cover housing, meals, construction training, spiritual development, fellowship and more. We also offer scholarships to groups and individuals who may not otherwise be able to attend.

Priority registration for Summer 2016 closes November 15. Groups of all sizes can enroll, and no group is too small. After November 15, groups and individuals may register where space is available. Call (916) 488-6441 or click today for more information!

It is no secret that we are becoming more desensitized to advertising. These days we automatically tune out most of the ads we see–digital ads get lost in social media noise, and flyers get tossed into the junk mail pile or the trash. So, how do we tell people about the fantastic events at our […]

A Deacon’s Reflection: Semper Gumbi
November 22, 2022

Most everyone in the San Diego area knows the Marine Corps motto: “Semper Fi,” always faithful. Some know the Coast Guard motto: “Semper Paratus,” always prepared. From my experience as a deacon, I suggest that the motto for the diaconate should be: “Semper Gumbi,” always flexible. What I thought I would do as a deacon […]

Ripples: Piety, Study, and Action in 30 Minutes a Day

Though the subtitle is tongue in cheek, one of the concepts we learn in Cursillo to help maintain our spiritual life in Christ is summed up in those three words: Piety, Study, and Action. The simple activity of reading the Bible daily to another person has strengthened me in those three disciplines. It has impacted […]
