God’s Work. Our Hands.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday!

On Sunday, Sept. 10, congregations of the ELCA will join together for our annual day of service. “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday began in 2013 in connection with the ELCA’s 25th anniversary. It continues to be an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the ELCA — one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor.

As you explore opportunities to participate in your community, ELCA.org/DayofService has the resources you need to plan and promote your day:

  • Planning tool kit.
  • Worship resources.
  • [NEW] Slides for projection screens or online worship.
  • Posters, postcards and social media graphics.
  • Spanish-language resources.
  • Promotional banners.
  • Videos.
  • Special hymn text, sheet music and recording.

Old Lutheran has T-shirts and other items available for purchase. The deadline for ordering your congregation’s personalized T-shirts is Aug. 18.

Don’t forget to share your congregation’s participation with us! Send stories and photos to so that together we can celebrate what God accomplishes through you.

Participate on social media using #GodsWorkOurHands.

If your congregation cannot participate on Sept. 10, you are welcome and encouraged to pick an alternate date that suits your schedule.

“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday is an extension of the work you do every dayto make your community a better place.

Join us in celebrating 10 years on Sept. 10!
