God’s Work Our Hands
It was easy to see that our congregation truly embraced this ELCA national church wide service event!
Ascension participated in the following two ways:
1. Our ladies baked cookies, brownies, cupcakes and pies and then brought them to church on this special Sunday morning. A group of volunteers helped package the baked goods into boxes. Each box also contained a special note of gratitude for service to our community. After church a group of volunteers donned the special “God’s Work Our Hands” T-shirts and delivered the boxes to eight different fire/rescue stations and one law enforcement office. Some of our youth also participated in the deliveries and were treated to a firsthand tour of the fire station!
2. Volunteers also gathered in our fellowship hall before our morning worship service to write appreciation letters to active duty members of the armed forces. Approximately 200 letters were handwritten. These letters were included in the “Taste of Home” gift boxes sent out by “Operation Shoebox”.
