Day of Service 2019

On Saturday, August 24, Concordia University Ann Arbor students and staff joined together to serve 11 organizations throughout Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.


The Day of Service launched with over 250 participants of students and staff gathering for a send-off service in Concordia’s Chapel of the Holy Trinity.

Groups then spread throughout the city to the following organizations: Habitat for Humanity, Natural Area Preservation, Mentor2Youth, Reuse Center, Shelter Association of Washtenaw County, Glacier Hills Senior Living Community, Meals on Wheels, Avalon Housing, Center for Independent Living, North Star Reach, and making fleece blankets for C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.

This annual event is part of CUAA’s Fall Welcome Weekend, a series of events and activities organized for new students before the launch of the 2019-20 academic year on Monday, Augusts 26.

Dedicating a significant part of the weekend to service is a representation of Concordia’s mission, to develop students in mind, body, and spirit for service to Christ in the Church and the world.
