God’s work. Our hands. Sunday

Each year Bethany Lutheran joins with thousands of other congregations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America for the annual “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday. ┬áThis is a dedicated day of service as we respond to God’s grace in service and together do God’s work with our hands. ┬áHere are some of the projects we have done in the past:

  • Work with town of West Branch

    • Various projects at the West Branch Public Library including painting of community room, gazebo, and landscape work.
    • Other miscellaneous cleanup
