September 8 is “God’s Work. Our Hands.” Sunday


Thu, Aug 29th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Faith & Worship

Greenfield Lutheran Church in Harmony, Minn. is celebrating “God’s Work. Our Hands.” Sunday by sponsoring the painting of an “A Brush With Kindness” house in Harmony September 5-8, 2013.

“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) – one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor.

The ELCA is a church that rolls up its sleeves and gets to work. Whether it is 30,000 young people doing community volunteer work at an ELCA Youth Gathering, the passionate volunteers of the ELCA homeless ministry network or the devoted members of the congregations who fight for peace and justice in their communities every day, the ELCA is a church that boldly does God’s work of restoring and reconciling communities.

On September 8, 2013, the ELCA is joining together as 4 million members, nearly 10,000 congregations, 65 synods and the church wide expression for one dedicated day of service. The idea is this: ELCA members are called to put their faith into action by engaging in service activity in their neighborhood, surrounding community or designated area. While service opportunities are endless, ELCA members and congregations are invited to conduct their own research opportunities for service that makes sense for their local context and the congregation’s service capacity. In other words, the idea is to deepen a congregation’s and/or member’s experience in their communities and offer some way for congregations to play a critical part in addressing community needs.

This year to recognize God’s Work and Our Hands Greenfield Lutheran has partnered with Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties to financially sponsor and provide the volunteer labor to help a family who needs help painting the exterior of their house. Pastor Betsy Dartt shared, “At Greenfield we are called to celebrate our life in Christ and to share the joy with others. This is a great opportunity to get out into our community working together in the name of Jesus. We want to connect with all who want to see God at work in our world.”

“A Brush With Kindness” is Habitat for Humanity’s new program that helps low to moderate income homeowners by offering exterior home improvements. Under the expertise of the construction staff, volunteers are utilized to make the necessary repairs on homes. The program i .....
