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 Commission Worship service.  Then we will divide out into several different mission projects.

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


There are projects and specific tasks for all ages and ability levels.  If you didn’t have a chance to sign up ahead of time, that’s OK.  You can join one of the groups on Sunday morning at the Lutheran church.  Below is a short description of some of the projects for this year:
