“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday, Sept. 8

 We are a church that rolls up our sleeves and gets to work.

“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday is September 8, 2013

“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate our 25th anniversary as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America — one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor.

On Sept., 8, 2013, you’re invited to join together with congregations across the ELCA as 4 million members, nearly 10,000 congregations, 65 synods and the churchwide expression for a dedicated day of service.

Learn what some SEPA congregations are doing!


This is an opportunity to engage your congregation in worship and service that day — or to partner with neighboring congregations, community groups or social service agencies to make an even bigger impact!

Let’s clean up neighborhoods, deliver meals, collect supplies for refugees overseas, visit our neighbors or help a child learn to read.

You work every day to welcome your neighbors and make your community a better place. Now let’s do it together as one body, using our hands to do God’s work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus Christ’s name throughout the world.
