On Sunday, September 7, 2014, nearly 10,000 congregations of the Lutheran Church will gather to serve communities in ways that share the love of God with all of God’s people. It’s called “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday. Liberty’s Lutheran Congregational Services (LCS) builds capacity for congregations and communities to serve those in need. Join us and your fellow Lutherans in service projects on Saturday, September 6 and Sunday, September 7 for “God’s work. Our hands.”
