God's Working with Our Hands

Spreading the Love of Jesus – One Day at a Time



Synod Logo


We are a church where people roll up their sleeves and get to work!

We live in a complex Age where change surrounds us. You probably feel overwhelmed by a constant stream of news and information that summons your attention by sending the invasive pop, ding, or silent vibration that invades every part of your daily life. You most likely believe in God, but you may not be affiliated with a local church at this point. You want to believe that God is working in your life and in the lives of the people you love, and you want to have impact and make a difference in the world. Maybe, at this point, you need stories that remind you that God’s at work in our lives, in the Church and in the world? Maybe you need some mental morsels to challenge you to think about the relationship between your daily living and faith, and to help you to see how other people are bridging that gap?

There’s always a next step for us to take in our journey of faith.

This is a place where you can learn about exciting ways that God’s people are reaching others with the love of Jesus as they join hands with each other in mission and ministry in the Southwestern Pennsylvania Synod  of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). This is a place where congregational leaders will be challenged to reflect and to think about ministry in new ways. This is a place where we hope that you be challenged to think about the relationship between daily living and the choices and commitments that you make each day. This is a place where we hope you will be challenged to explore ways that the choices and decisions you make each day are connected to your journey of faith and to your understanding of what it means to follow Jesus in our changing world.
