God’s work. Our hands. Sunday
September 11, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
God’s work. Our hands. Sunday is a single day when Lutherans across the nation come together to serve our communities
This day is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor.
Service activities offer an opportunity for us to explore one of our most basic convictions as Lutherans: that all of life in Jesus Christ – every act of service, in every daily calling, in every corner of life – flows freely from a living, daring confidence in God’s grace.
St. James Lutheran Church and other Lutheran Church in the Gettysburg Conference come together to serve organizations within our community through a variety of service projects.
Here are the God’s work. Our hands. Sunday service opportunities for 2022:
- Ruth’s Harvest Food Collection: Collecting food for food insecure children – meet at Lincoln Elementary School
- LWR Quilt Making – Meet at Christ Lutheran Church, Gettysburg
- Camp Nawakwa Beautification – Meet at Camp Nawakwa in Arendtsville to complete projects around the camp
- LWR Blanket Making – Meet at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Biglerville
Sign-up for your service project here.
Gathering time is at 1:00 p.m. Please note that this year volunteers will launch from the service sites. (In previous years, there was a Sending Service from a central location; this will not be occurring this year.)
