God’s work. Our hands. Day of Service is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. This event usually happens on an early weekend in September!
Opportunities vary each year. We try to offer a variety of ways for people of all ability levels to serve! In the past, we have volunteered with organizations like HETRA (a facility in Gretna to help clean up and spruce up the site), Kids Against Hunger (our kiddos in 2018 brought over $1500 to go toward filling meals to be distributed to those starving in many countries from their “noisy offering” during the year), Least of My Brethren is another group we have worked with (a group of volunteers working in the Omaha and Council Bluffs Metros to assist the homeless population in getting a meal, staying safe on the streets, getting to their job interviews and eventually furnishing apartments) through collecting money to purchase bikes for transportation and also collecting household goods to help this population settle into a home.
Projects for this upcoming year will be announced! Keep an eye on our announcements, messenger, or contact the office for more information.
If you need GWOH t-shirts, please order them as soon as possible.
