Nominate a Family

Capital’s Giving Tree was created to help families in need this Christmas. Nominate yourself or a friend/family member in need this year to receive assistance with providing an incredible Christmas experience. Our goal is to provide gift cards to the families nominated so they can have dignity and joy in purchasing gifts for their children this season. Capital Giving Tree is only available to nominees who live in the greater Sacramento area.

Nominations will be received through Sunday, November 28. 

December 5 & 12

Move Up Sunday

Move Up Sunday


Preschool-5th Grade | August 8 | 9 & 11am 

The time is officially here to celebrate the growth of our children this year! On Sunday morning, August 8, all preschoolers, kids, and students promote to their new age groups at 9 & 11am. Capital Kids check is is available in the Activity Center Lobby. Any host can help direct you to a new room if you have any questions.

*The biggest adjustment to note is for our 5th graders. Our middle school group, Local 678, meets on Sundays at the 11am service hour only. If your 5th grader has been attending Capital Kids at 9am, they can either attend the regular adult service with you, or you can bring them for the 11am hour to room A24 to check in as a new 6th grader! 

Other age and room adjustments are as follows for those entering:

  • 3-4 year olds | S11 with Mrs. Tina
  • K-1 grades | S9 with Mr. Julian
  • 2-5 grades | Activity Center with Pastor Drew

Our 8th graders that will be promoting into high school will have a goodbye party with Pastor Jonnie on August 21. There are limited spots for this party. Parents can reach out for more info by emailing or joining the 678 parents Facebook group.

Back-to-School Prayer

Back-to-School Prayer


Prayer Emphasis: Kindergarten – College-age Students

It’s so hard to believe that the summer is winding down and it’s time to get ready to head back to school. We want you to know that Capital is here to support, pray, and walk alongside you this school year – whether that be in a building, online or at home.  We also understand the importance of our church’s support of our students, educators and administrators. Knowing they have a church walking alongside them makes a huge difference to our students  – no matter what stage of school they are in – and educators alike. 

Join us on Wednesday, August 11 at 7pm in the Auditorium for a Back-to-School prayer and worship night! Kids K-8th grade can start the night checking into their regular rooms and will be brought over in the middle of service to be prayed over. High school and college students are invited to attend the prayer gathering beginning at 7pm. 

Here are some scriptures to pray over our students this year:

Protection Over Our Kids

Scripture: But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them sing joyful praises forever. Spread your protection over them, that all who love your name may be filled with joy. Psalm 5:11

Give Strength to Our Teachers

Show Our Kids the Right Path

Scripture: Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Psalms 25:4 NLT

Give Our Children Hearts for Learning

Scripture: Intelligent people are always ready to learn. Their ears are open for knowledge. Proverbs 18:15 NLT

Prayer for Common Sense and Insight

Scripture: Common sense and success belong to me. Insight and strength are mine. Proverbs 8:14

Finding Purpose

Scripture: But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations. Psalms 33:11 NIV

To Be a Kind Friend

Scripture: Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 3:12 NIV

Accepting Correction

Scripture: Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life. Proverbs 19:20

For Unspeakable Joy

Scripture: I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! John 15:11

Heatwave Cancellation Notice

Heatwave Cancellation Notice


Preschool-5th Grade | August 3-5 

As we act in love and concern for the safety of our community and church families, we have decided to cancel Heatwave 2021. There has been a significant rise in Covid-19 cases in the Sacramento area. We also have volunteers and church attenders who have recently been exposed to Covid-19. Those exposed have taken the proper precautions of quarantining at this time.  

Our team has been planning and preparing for this event, and this is not a decision that we made hastily. There have been reports of local students coming back from other church camps that have also been exposed to this virus and therefore exposed their families. We do not want to put anyone at risk. Your safety is of our utmost concern. 

Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. We are looking forward to hosting you in the future. We will be issuing full refunds in the coming days. If you have any immediate questions, please email  

Capital Kids will resume their Sunday services this weekend at 9 and 11am. Staff and volunteers will be wearing masks and we will be asking to take temperatures of kids before entering their age-appropriate rooms.

Vaccination Clinic | Thursdays

Vaccination Clinic | Thursdays

In partnership with Sacramento County, Capital Christian Center will host a Covid-19 Vaccination Clinic every Thursday from July 15 through Thursday, August 19 from 10am-5pm (closed between 2:30-3pm). There is no cost and no appointment needed. Appointments can be made to ensure a quicker check-in process here. Parking is available on the west side of the campus near the front fountain. There will be directional signs pointing toward the Parlour where the check-in will take place.

We are here to serve our local Sacramento community and our church members. If you have been looking for a place to get vaccinated, what better place to come to than right here at Capital.

LOCATION: Capital Christian Center Parlour
9470 Micron Avenue, Sacramento, CA 95827
TIME: 10am-5pm (closed between 2:30-3pm)
DATES: Thursdays from July 15 – August 19
APPOINTMENT: Appointments are encouraged, Walk Ups are Available


What should I expect at my appointment?

At your appointment, wear a mask and stay 6 feet away from others.

You will get a fact sheet that tells you about the specific vaccine you’ll receive, with risks and benefits.

The vaccine will be given to you as a shot in your upper arm.

After vaccination, you’ll be monitored on-site for 15 minutes to make sure you don’t have a reaction.

Once vaccinated, you’ll get a card that tells you what COVID-19 vaccine you got, the date you got it, and where you got it. Bring your vaccination card to your second appointment (if you need two shots), and keep it in case you need it in the future.

Ask your vaccination provider about getting started with v-safe, a free, smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to check how you’re doing after your COVID-19 vaccination.

Why is the vaccine only for adolescents 12 and over?

Vaccine trials and approvals commonly begin with older, more vulnerable populations then extend to younger ages. Adolescents were the next group to be prioritized because they are most similar to adults and are more likely than younger kids to spread the virus and become seriously ill. This approach balances the need for safety and speed, while protecting our children throughout vaccine development.

Both Pfizer and Moderna have ongoing clinical trials in people younger than 12. Depending on the outcome of those trials, authorization for this next age group could happen later this year. Johnson & Johnson is currently in clinical trials for the 12-17 age group.
