God's Work, Our Hands
Every year, the ELCA participates in a National Day of Service called "God's Work, Our Hands." This day is an ooportunity to celebrate who wer eare 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 conveictions 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.
