On Sunday, Sept. 13, the ELCA will observe “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday. Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, ELCA members will mark the annual day of service by helping make a positive change in their communities, building and deepening relationships and sharing God’s love.
Although the pandemic has forced congregations to cancel in-person worship and move to virtual services, ELCA members have continued to support ministries that assist vulnerable people in their communities. “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday will mark the work that congregations participate in on a daily basis.
Projects to safely support communities in the time of a pandemic can include sewing masks; writing thank-you notes and assembling care packages for emergency care workers, teachers and other essential workers; helping with yard work for members who need assistance; delivering meals and groceries; and packing hygiene and personal care kits.
