Lutherans serve. It is that simple. It is a way of life. It is a way of faith.
At worship, when we remind ourselves of who we are and how we are to live in faith, we ask one another: “ . . . Do you intend to continue. . . to serve all people, following the example of Jesus and to strive for justice and peace in all the earth?” (“Affirmation of Baptism,” Evangelical Lutheran Worship, Augsburg Fortress, 2006)
The response is always affirmative, “I do, and I ask God to help and guide me.”
Therefore, it is fitting that we recognize the 25th anniversary of the forming of our denomination with a day of service. We roll up our sleeves, build upon the relationships we have in our communities and get to work.
