God's Work Our Hands Sunday

National Day of Service

September 8, 2019 is God's Work Our Hands Sunday across the ELCA.  We begin at 10 AM with a brief worship service, followed by a variety of service projects to do.  This year you can choose from:

- making dog biscuits and pet beds for the animal shelter

- making greeting cards for homeless veterans served by a local food pantry

- helping put together health kits to be distributed to veterans and their families

- painting bird houses to care for our feathered friends

- singing old time hymns for the residents of Greenfield Health and Rehabilitation

- helping with outdoor clean up at our new Youth Center right next door to the church

We are all called and equipped to be God's hands and feet and voices of love in our world. Come join us - together we can change the world!  (And you'll be home in time to watch the Bills game!)

For more information, call 668-8000.


Youth Center Grand Opening!

In June, 2019, Lord of Life began renovations on the house next door to turn it into a Youth Center.  The Grand Opening and open house will take place at 11:30 AM on Sunday, September 15.  

This space, dedicated  to the nurture and faith formation of our children, youth and young adults, will be used for education, retreats, Friday Night Youth Nights and whatever the kids and their adult mentors dream up.  This project is a major investment of our church in the younger generations and we are thrilled to begin using the space.  

You are invited to come and see at our Open House on September 15, or call to schedule a tour and find out more!

Want to know more?

Call Leigh Lee, our Youth Director, at 668-8000.  We'd love to have you join us for our programs or Youth Nights!
