Giving Name Change Update



I miss seeing you in our worship experience we so enjoyed over the years. Cathy and I continue to pray for you to flourish in your relationship with Jesus and in your influence in our community. You remain in our hearts and a blessing in our spiritual journey. 

I am hopeful you received your record of contributions to Capital Christian Center for the previous year, 2023. If you have any questions, please call (916) 856-5683 or email We will do our best to serve you. 

Thank you for your faithfulness in serving the Lord and for your generous giving to make Him known in our city and around the world. You are the engine of Capital that empowered us to be known for generosity far and wide. 

Since our transition last September, we have been serving our community as Capital Compassion. In just the last four months of 2023, through our volunteers and ministry partners, we distributed approximately $275,000 worth of goods and services. 

We are continuing these efforts in 2024 as the vision continues to expand. Every month, new ministry partners join us in serving refugee communities, those with food insecurity, special needs job opportunities, and those who are homeless. 

We have had more than 200 volunteers serve in the various outreaches to our city. Many of our volunteers serve multiple days a week in our warehouse organizing the food distribution and household items that are being gifted to those in need. We have served approximately 1,500 households with needed groceries. The need is great, but the heart and compassion of our Capital Compassion volunteers is even greater. 

Through a partnership with a charter school in North Sacramento, our volunteers brought Christmas joy to 150 families who have been in the United States for less than six months after escaping the war in Ukraine. Through our partnership with World Vision, we provided microwaves, heaters, tea kettles, and other household items. In addition, we provided four bags of groceries to each family, including fresh produce for them to make meals they are accustomed to in Ukraine. Each child received an age-appropriate Christmas gift. Observing the joy on the faces of so many made this a day I will remember for the rest of my life. 

This month we are serving another charter school, Higher Learning, with groceries and home goods. This school is comprised of low-income families who are a joy for us to serve. 

We are also onboarding 10 new ministry partners as we continue to expand. In addition, we will have a Bible study that I will be teaching at the invitation of Friends of the Neighborhood in Oak Park called “Bridging the Divide.” You are more than welcome to join us on Thursday, February 22, at 6:30pm at 2863 35th Street in Sacramento. 

We extend an open invitation to volunteer with Capital Compassion whenever it might work in your schedule. You can learn about our events and opportunities at 

Many of our Capital family have donated financially to our compassion efforts over the past few months. We are continuing our transition to Capital Compassion by incorporating as a separate 501c3. If you would like to be a partner through giving, it is vital that checks be written to Capital Compassion and mailed to P.O. Box 276267, Sacramento, CA 95827. Any check written to Capital Christian Center after February 15, will not be forwarded to Capital Compassion for our missional work. All checks made out to Capital Compassion will go directly to fund our compassion efforts in the city. Also, online giving through or through the SecureGive app have not changed. All online donations have been, and will continue to be, directed to our compassion efforts. Every dollar is multiplied many times over through the hundreds of hours of volunteer work, gifts in kind, and partnerships with World Vision and Convoy of Hope. 

We are seeking to live by the word of the Lord from Micah 6:8, “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Thank you for your heart to honor the Lord with us. 

In His love and grace,

Pastor Rick and Cathy
