SAEGERTOWN — Twelve Apostles Lutheran Church, 358 Euclid Ave., will once again participate in God’s Work. Our Hands.
This initiative was instituted in 2013 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, continues with relish in nearly 10,000 ELCA congregations with some 4 million members participating and is dedicated to serving the community that hosts each church.
Today, 10 teams of church-family members from Twelve Apostles will tackle home repairs and maintenance projects at six households in the Saegertown area, predominantly of the elderly and handicapped. Other teams will clean at the church, pack and deliver care baskets filled with baked goods, fruit and a gift card to the “host” homes and pick up litter in the borough and on the grounds of public buildings in Saegertown.
Names of those in need were supplied by the church as well as the borough office. The event will go forth rain or shine.
Members of the God's Work. Our Hands. teams will wear bright gold T-shirts commemorating the event as they complete their work today. Workers will gather at 8:30 a.m. that day at the church to receive final instructions from team leaders and prayer from Pastor Mark Fischer.
