God’s Work Our Hands:
Sunday, September 11, 2022
We are excited to participate again in the ELCA God’s Work Our Hands
Day of Service on Sunday, September 11.
This day is where all around the world (and in particular in Charles City, Iowa) we can demonstrate St. John’s mission: God’s Love in Action, by reaching out in our community to serve and love our neighbors.
We offered several projects last year and plan to offer some of the same ones along with some new ones. We need your help in the following:
1. Volunteering/participating in one or more of the projects on Sunday, September 11
2. Helping us identify people/projects in our community that we could do
3. Helping collect materials for some of the projects
4. If you are a Thrivent member selecting one of the projects we are doing to submit for Thrivent matching funds to help (we will be getting more information out about how to do this and what is needed).
Below is a link to the ELCA website about the day including a special hymn composed for the event.
Some Information about Thrivent Actions Teams:
Each Thrivent member is eligible to lead (one or two action teams—depends on the type of membership you have) a year. Thrivent provides a kit (including up to $250 seed money) for action team projects. We will provide more information to Thrivent members on how to access this benefit for those who are interested.
