“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday is only one month away. “A Christian is lord of all, completely free of everything; a Christian is a servant, completely attentive to the needs of all,” said Martin Luther. Area congregations will be among those across the ELCA participating in a dedicated day of service on Sunday, Sept. 10 – or another date if more convenient for your congregation’s schedule.

“This is work you do in your communities every day, and we look forward to working together again this year,” writes Christina Jackson-Skelton, ELCA Mission Advancement. Worship resources, door hanger invites, t-shirts and more to help you plan are available from http://elca.org/dayofservice.

  • Consider advocacy related to your service activity, such as hunger, care for creation and international assistance. An optional, personalizable template letter is among resources on the day of service link.
  • Shortly after Sept. 10, send stories and photos to livinglutheran@elca.org to help share what together God accomplishes through us.
  • Share your “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday experience on social media, and tag the #dcsynod @metrodcelca so we can give thanks with you.
