THANK YOU for participating in God’s Work Our Hands (GWOH) in unique yet effective ways this year as we Gather, Write, Open and Haul (GWOH). As we strive to be safe and socially distanced during this pandemic, we celebrate that we can still effectively participate in God’s Work Our Hands activities – as individuals within our families and neighborhoods and also as a faith community working together to share God’s love with others, both locally and globally. THANKS again and again!
