While service opportunities are endless, and this is what congregations do in their everyday ministries, it will be a powerful experience work together across communities and the country. Clean up a neighborhood park, volunteer in a homeless shelter, or partner with a local social ministry organization for a project they recommend.
Step into service after worship, or hold devotions at a worksite to frame the day.
Look for bulletin inserts and ideas at www.elca.org/25years, where many ways to celebrate “Always being made new” are highlighted. We are four million ELCA members and a church deeply rooted in faith and in sharing a passion for making positive changes in the world.
