On Sunday, Sept. 11, thousands of Lutherans came together to put their faith in action as part of “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday, the ELCA’s annual dedicated day of service. The 2016 service day coincided with the 15-year anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States. Many congregational service projects focused on honoring the first responders in their communities. Here are some highlights from the day. Photos will be added to this blog all week so check back for updates. Send your photos and stories to livinglutheran@elca.org.
