We Will Work to Serve our Neighbors and Recognize those Who Serve!
Sunday, September 11, following worship, Our Savior’s participated in the third annual ELCA’s, “God’s Work. Our Hands.” Sunday. This day of service is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. We will share this day with thousands of ELCA congregations around the country. As Pastor Tim would say, “How Cool is That”

The 2016 dedicated day of service marks the 15-year anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States. Our worship invited and recognized those in our community who selflessly serve on a daily basis to protect and serve us. In the words of our presiding Bishop, Elizabeth Eaton:
“The world can be a dangerous place. But there are some who, when disaster strikes, run toward the danger. These are first responders, firefighters, police and EMTs, who live out their baptismal vocation in service to their communities in times of intense need. They do God’s work with their hands.”

God's work. Our hands.

New This Year for God's work. Our hands. Sunday!
Your planning team is particularly interested in ministries that we can continue beyond this one day of service. This year, we are particularly excited about the addition of a new way to serve and it begins with participating in a forum on resources for families to care for returned veterans and families with deployed. We will be opening this up to the community as well. It will be led by Connie Walker, Retired Captain in the US Navy.

In addition to advocating for Post-911 veterans and families on a case-by-case basis, Connie has been providing community awareness and education presentations since 2005 to faith-based communities in Wisconsin. She’ll teach us how to be compassionate and caring and to improve our outreach to veterans and families.
God's work. Our hands.
