God’s Work Our Hands 2018

27 Sep 2018 - 27 Aug 2018 | 08:00 am - 08:00 am

What started as a one day service initiative with ELCA 5 years ago has become everyday life here at Living Savior Lutheran Church. Many of the projects we have done over the 5 years have become part of our mission to serve God’s people. This year we will offer many opportunities for you to use your hands to do God’s work as we support may different agencies that reach out to our community and beyond. Projects are planned so EVERYONE can participate- all ages and abilities.

The projects on Sunday, August 26, will follow a UNITY service to start at 10:00 a.m. The projects are designed so that when you finish with one we encourage you to see if help is needed on another, until all the projects are complete. We will then gather to share stories and fellowship and enjoy a light lunch.

Be sure to order your God’s Work Our Hands t shirt by August 5. Shirts are $10 each and we will plan to wear them while participating in a project. They can later be worn to any church related service project. Orders will be taken the month of July and are available in youth and adult sizes.

Summer Women’s Shelter – August 12-18.  This summer we will host up to 12 women/children for one entire week. The Center of Hope (Salvation Army’s women’s/children’s shelter) is seeing a huge increase in the number of neighbors needing assistance and there is no more room at their “Inn”. Our guests will use Living Saviour as a home base each evening. Each day we will provide transportation to and from Urban Ministry Center, a hot shower, clean bed, an evening meal, snacks and breakfast and lunch for the following day. Lots of volunteers are needed!
