Please save the date Sunday, Sept. 9, for “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday.
As members of the ELCA, we believe we are called, gathered and sent into the world to embody the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection – called into relationship with God, gathered together as a community of believers and sent into the world to love and serve our neighbors.
1 Corinthians, Chapter 12, reminds us, “Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord, and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.”
On “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday, we join together to use our various gifts in service to our communities – this is work you do every day, sharing the love of Christ with all of God’s people.
Watch how our congregations have put their faith in action since 2013 for this dedicated day of service.
If your congregation cannot participate on Sept. 9, please consider another time.
Save the date and visit ELCA.org/dayofservice for updates to our resources.
We look forward to working together on “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday.
