God’s Work. Our Hands. Sunday Sep. 9

On this special day celebrated by Lutherans across the country, the congregation from NEW HOPE FELLOWSHIP CHURCH in Chantilly will be joining us for worship at 9:30 AM and for GWOH activities following worship. New Hope ministers to the homeless and less fortunate from our communities. Find out more about New Hope Fellowship.

Childcare will be provided for ages 3 and under.

The opportunities for us to do God’s Work with Our Hands include:


  • Join in worship with our brothers and sisters in Christ from New Hope
  • Provide food for a light breakfast for our guests and/or for lunch for all GWOH workers.
  • Set up, serve and/or clean up breakfast or lunch
  • Take part in fellowship as we work together to spruce up Emmanuel.
  • Join Robert Morehead and other singers to share songs with the guests.


The building and the grounds of Emmanuel need some tender loving care. Some of the tasks will include:

Attic organization and cleaning

  • Window washing
  • Nursery cleaning
  • Pew cleaning
  • Weeding, planting and mulching outdoors

And more!
