Today we have a local prayer meeting, children’s meeting, various home meetings and Bible studies, and we host a weekly BfA table in Folsom City College. After fellowship with the brothers in the region, we had our first table meeting as a district in October 2016. There has been some traction with the local people through the children’s meeting yet we feel like there is room for the Lord to grow.
The City of Folsom
Folsom is a city in Sacramento County, California. It has a rich history beginning with the ‘49ers during California’s great Gold Rush. It was the site of the West’s first railroad and the world’s first long-distance transmission of electricity.
The City’s General Plan, adopted in 1988, set the path Folsom is following into the 21st century. It shows a growing city that intends to keep its human scale. The General Plan also takes note of the community’s family orientation, calling for a minimum of five acres of park land for each 1,000 residents, and for city co-sponsorship of special activities that involve the entire family.
Although Folsom has the flavor of a small city, it does not lack the conveniences of modern living. It has ample shopping and cultural facilities, either in town or within a few minutes drive, and there are plans for more. It also has new hospital facilities and an expanding corps of professional specialists. For more information see City-Data Profile and Official City Website.
