“Gods Work. Our Hands.” Sunday

Starts: September 8, 2013 at 9:00 am
Ends: September 8, 2013 at 1:00 pm

To celebrate the ELCA’s anniversary and our church’s commitment to sharing God’s love with
our neighbors, Shepherd of the Hills is taking part in a dedicated day of service on September 8
known as “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday.

Imagine joining the nearly 10,000 congregations of our church serving meals, cleaning up
neighborhoods, making quilts for refugees or simply visiting the neighbors who need us. We are
a church that rolls up our sleeves and gets to work.

On that Sunday we will gather at our regular 9:00 time for a brief worship service. We will sing,
pray, and receive Holy Communion together…and then we will spend the rest of the morning,
and maybe even the afternoon serving others! We will gather back at church for an afternoon
meal together.
