God’s Work Our Hands

2019 – Sunday, October 27th


God’s Work, Our Hands is an annual ecumenical gathering of churches for a day of service to the Ramona community.   This year we will be meeting at the Spirit of Joy Lutheran Church on Main Street.  At 9:00 am we will have a short Commissioning Worship service.  Then we will divide out into several different mission projects. Sign ups for the different projects are available in church on the 20th, or at Spirit of Joy on the 27th.   A list of this year’s projects is at the bottom of this page.

Spirit of Joy Lutheran Church is located at 1735 Main St.
