Sunday, September 13 is the ELCA’s “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday. This year, Faith will be using our hands to help refugees and immigrants in our community. Lutheran Social Services of the National Capital Area works in partnership with the U.S. State Department to welcome and resettle refugees from around the world, including Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and West Africa. These refugees have had to flee their homeland, leaving all their belongings behind.
Faith will be supporting LSS by assembling welcome kits for newly arrived refugees on Sunday, September 13. These kits will go directly to refugees in our area. Right up through the day of the service project, we will be collecting new or “gently loved” items for the welcome kits. A box labeled “LSS” is in the Fellowship Hall, or you can deliver items to the church office.
