God’s Work, Our Hands Day, Oct.1: Project description

Each year, St. Martin, Bethlehem, and Immanuel Lutheran Churches (all the Webster Lutherans) join forces in a service project to serve our communities. This year, our day of service will be Oct. 1.

We have a couple of exciting projects in store! As usual, there is one indoor project, and one outdoor project:

Outdoor: There is a house in the village of Webster that is in need of paint. It belongs to a single handicapped woman who cannot do the work herself. We are working with Rotary on this: we will scrap the house and prime it, and Rotary will paint it. If there’s time, we may do some yard work, too.

Indoor:  We have watched in horror as Texas, Florida, and islands off the Florida coast have been bombarded by hurricanes this season. Working with Church World Services, we will be assembling flood clean-up buckets and hygiene kits to help victims with the recovery effort. We are collecting items through September, and will purchase the rest of what is needed. On Oct. 1, we plan to assembly 30 buckets and as many hygiene kits as possible to ship down south.

Plan to join us for these projects! We all are one in mission…
