On Saturday, June 14 between 9am and noon, First Baptist Church of Elk Grove (8939 E. Stockton Blvd) will host “Threads of Change,” a community clothing sale benefitting P.A.T.H. (People Assisting The Homeless) and Courage House (a non-profit Christian organization that is building homes around the world for children rescued out of sex trafficking).
But before we see the benefits of “Threads of Change,” we want to invite shoppers for our gently used clothing, shoes, and accessories. Many of you enjoy the thrill of Thrift Store bargains; here is your chance to enjoy yourself and find some great bargains on June 14th from 9am and noon.
Help us spread the word, please broadcast for us, send messages, tweet, and get the word out.

Sara Wang from Davita Dialysis presented a $1,000 donation to PATH members Fred Bremerman and Linda Strom for the upcoming EGWins program.
What a great help from Davita Dialysis to help us in our joint effort with local churches to offer temporary, emergency shelter for homeless people in Elk Grove during the cold winter months.
PATH was blessed today by a very sweet boy who collected cans and bottles to raise money to donate toward the Grace House. Encouraged by a teacher to find a way to give an unexpected blessing 7 year old Josiah Rogers told his mother Bethany that he want to give money to PATH.
Josiah had heard about the work PATH was doing with the homeless when he saw a flyer at Sun Grove Church. Joined by his mother, sisters and brother, Josiah met with PATH volunteer Ed Kelly at Grace House to deliver the envelope of cash he saved from his work collecting and redeeming cans and bottles.
We are grateful that this young boy took the time and effort to reach out to those in need. His giving heart is greatly appreciated.

Again our community and our connections are benefiting Elk Grove homeless. Let's celebrate!
