COLUMBIA CITY — The city’s streets were full of orange T-shirt wearing Lutherans’ Sunday as three local congregations came together to volunteer in Columbia City.

The work day was part of a nation-wide initiative celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ECLA).

“God’s work, our hands,” was the motto for the day. Judy Follis, event coordinator and pastor of Hope Lutheran Church, saw the day as a chance to give back to the community that has supported the local ECLA congregations.
