You’re Invited to the ELCA Day of Service

On Sunday, Sept. 12, ELCA congregations will join together for “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday.

This annual day of service is an opportunity for us to celebrate who we are as the ELCA — one church, freed in Christ to love and serve our neighbor.

We rejoice that many in-person church activities have resumed, and we encourage you to plan your day of service in compliance with local health guidelines. Consider offering options that are outdoors, drive-through or virtual.

To help you plan for “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday, we invite you to visit for resources including:

Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton invites you to “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday, Sept. 12.

Go in peace, serve the Lord!
