"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.



Our Churchwide Organization has provided a number of resources to help congregations get started:


Show people where you're from! You can order "God's Work. Our Hands." tshirts or sweatshirts that are customizable with your congregation's name. They are available here in English, Spanish, and Arabic. 



Register your congregation here.


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.


The date for 2016 is Sunday, September 11. If your congregation cannot participate on this date, please consider another time for your dedicated day of service. Read more here.
