Julie Skare, Community & Global Ministries Leader

We are called to live & love like Jesus in lives of service. Gather with hundreds of people of all ages and abilities from the POP community to serve across Cincinnati during this annual weekend of service, “God’s work. Our hands” (GWOH). GWOH is held each year, the weekend after Labor Day, together with thousands of others from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

Sign up now online! Many of the service locations have a maximum number of people who can participate, so you are encouraged to sign up early. Please sign up no later than September 2. If you need help signing up, please contact Karen Skarda.
