“God’s Work. Our Hands.” Day of Service

“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the ELCA — one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor.  On Sunday, September 10, 2017, Good Shepherd members gathered after worship to serve residents in our community in ways that share the love of God with all of God’s people.  Along with other members of the ELCA, we reached out with the love of Christ to our neighbors. We are a church that “rolls up our sleeves and gets to work”. So after fellowship, we divided into groups and went to our projects which consisted of:

  • Preparing quilts and Baby Care Kits for Lutheran World Relief
  • Assembling School Kits for Lutheran World Relief
  • Yard work for a family in need
  • Singing at the men’s home

A spaghetti lunch was provided for our workers when they returned from their work sites.

Below are some of our members in action at the different sites:

Below is a video clip of our talented musicians.
