2014 Weekly Challenge #28: Random Acts of Kindness

Practicing kindness, and passing it on to others encourages other to do the same thing. If we're all being kind, and doing kind things for each other, the world is bound to be a better place. And doing something nice for someone "just because" creates a feel good moment for the giver and recipient!

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.
