6 Churches in Humboldt County Partner for Day of Service!
On Saturday, March 12, 2022, 6 Lutheran churches throughout Humboldt County gathered for a Day of Service, focusing their efforts on serving the local community. The project brought together Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Ferndale, Christ Lutheran Church in Fortuna, the Lutheran Church of Arcata in Arcata, Calvary Lutheran Church in Eureka, Immanuel Lutheran Church in Eureka and Grace Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in McKinleyville. Matching t-shirts saying "Lutherans in Action, Humboldt County" unified this group of Lutherans for the day!
Bishop Megan Rohrer and Catherine Slabaugh had the pleasure of joining the community for the day of service, here's a peek into the projects and fellowship:
The Day of Service took place in Eureka, as we partnered with 3 local nonprofits many of the churches had pre-existing relationships with.
The day began with a beach clean-up with the PacOut Green Team, cleaning up the Eureka Bay Trail. With our trash buckets and bright green vests in hand, the group set out on a beautifully clear morning to help clean up the trail.
After an hour of trash pick-up, we gathered back in the parking lot for a celebratory raffle and group photo. The PacOut Green Team hosts weekly clean-ups around Humboldt County and is an easy way to get outdoors, get your steps in, and serve the local community.
