Sunday, September 12 is "God's work. Our hands." Sunday
“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday is Sunday, September 12, 2021. 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.
For "God's work. Our hands." Sunday, Saron will use the hands of its members and friends to show God's love in this very concrete way: Cleaning up!
Some of us will collect trash along our adopted highway. We'll have bags, vests and nitrile gloves. Wear your sturdy boots, sunscreen and work gloves. (To worship as well!) Signs should be up along Colfax west of town for safety, and we'll head out for trash pick-up after worship—9:30 a.m. or so.
Some of us will work in or around church. We have cleaners, rags, bags etc. If you think you'll need tools from home, remember to bring those as well!
After we've done our cleaning, sloppy joe lunch (ironic after all that cleaning, huh?) will be provided at Saron.
All hands are welcome as we worship, serve our neighbors, and enjoy food and fellowship!
