“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday


“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday is Sunday, September 8, 2019. This day 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.

Service activities offer an opportunity for us to explore one of our most basic convictions as Lutherans: that all of life in Jesus Christ – every act of service, in every daily calling, in every corner of life – flows freely from a living, daring confidence in God’s grace.

You work every day to make your community a better place. Let us continue doing this work together in 2019! View the video and access resources to guide your congregation’s planning, promotion and more.

New this year, the ELCA is offering people from across the church an opportunity to submit their original composition for consideration as a hymn for “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday. Entries will be screened by a selection team and one hymn may be selected. The winning entrant will receive a $500 honorarium. Submissions should be emailed or postmarked on or before March 1, 2019. Learn more about details and contest rules.
