Saturday, September 21 is the day to get involved in this year’s God’s Work, Our Hands day of service. We have an opportunity to take care of God’s creation and our neighbors by visiting and delivering flowers to hospice patients and shut-ins, playing bingo at our local nursing home, build with Habitat for Humanity, or maintain hiking trails in Washington/Ozaukee County. If you can’t help this day, always look for ways to do God’s work in your everyday life.
Please see the enclosed brochure for more information. Complete the last page and return to the box in the Gathering Space, or in the offering plate. If your entire family is helping put the initials of each person next to the item in which you’d like to participate.
We will also help some of our neighbors in need through donations:
