“God’s Work, Our Hands”
Get ready to do some more of God’s work! This year, we will join the wider ELCA in participating in the annual “God’s Work, Our Hands” weekend. This is a weekend set aside for ELCA churches to serve in the communities, we serve together locally, and we serve together globally. Saturday, September 9th, join with other ELCA churches serving at River Bend Food Bank, packing backpacks for their weekend food program. These backpacks are sent home with kids facing food insecurity. They are packed with easy-to-prepare meals for the weekend away from school. Sign up for one of two packing shifts (8 – 10 am or 10:30am – 12:30pm) online. If you are making or providing snacks, please have them to All Saints Lutheran Church by 5 pm Thursday or St. James Lutheran by noon on Friday. Please sign up at the provided link.

Beginning October 1st, we will be gathering for study and conversation around Luther’s small catechism. This 7- week study will meet weekly on Sunday afternoon at 4:30 pm to form faith as joint people of God.
