What: 49er Fun is a 26 hour Christian living history program for 4th graders and parents from Christian private schools. We call it “49er” because we work in character in 1854 as we guide them through the Gold Rush. “Fun” because it’s a blast!
Description: As a Christian living history guide you will help lead the kids and parents through a section of history from the California Gold Rush, taking them through restored gold mines, Sutter’s Mill, teach them how to pan for gold, and what it was like to live back in 1854. All while living in 1854 of coarse. You will help to inspire the kids (and parents) to better understand the California gold rush from the perspective of actually living through it, and to stimulate their comprehension about God, who matters so much more than this shiny metal we put such high value in.
Who: We look for people who love God and enjoy playing with kids. Bring with you strong social skills or plan on developing them quickly. Do to the time of year, this is a season we typically are looking for help. If you can provide a day, week, month, or other section of time on a daily or weekly basis, we would love to hear from you.

We believe we should, "Love the Lord (our) God with all (our) heart, and with all (our) soul, and with all (our) mind," and "The entire law is summed up in one command: Love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:37, Galatians 5:14. We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal and only Son of God. That He died on the cross as the perfect sacrifice, paying the penalty for all our sins, and then rose from the grave. It is through faith alone in Jesus Christ that we have received the free gift of salvation and eternal life. We are saved by grace, not works, “that no one should boast”. We believe the Bible is accurate, reliable, and the Word of God. (Luke 5:20-24; John 1:1-18; John 3:15-21; John 14:1-15; Ephesians 2; 1 John)
