"God's work. Our hands." Sunday

All Day Event

We join together as four million members, nearly 10,000 congregations, 65 synods and the churchwide expression for a dedicated day of service.

 

We are a church that rolls up our sleeves and gets to work. Whether it is volunteering at a shelter for people and families that are homeless, gathering food items to fill shelves at a local food pantry, or advocating for peace ad justice in communities, your 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.

After the event, you're encouraged to send photos, videos, or reflections to Rebekah Thornhill so that we can share them among others in our synod.
