September 4-11, 2016 will be the Virginia Synod's 4th annual Week of Service!
The Virginia Synod Week of Service coincides with "God's Work, Our Hands" Sunday, the ELCA Day of Service on September 11. This year's dedicated day of service also marks the 15-year anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
We have extended the opportunity to serve to accommodate varying schedules. Last year 70 churches participated in the Week of Service.
All congregations are invited to reach out into their neighborhoods to become God's hands and feet, to serve those in need and to share God's compassion with the world. The Week of Service is an opportunity for everyone to intentionally invest time in service projects outside the walls of the church. Pick a project and prepare to serve others in the name of God's love.
