We invite everyone into the fullness of God’s love... every race, national origin, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, physical or mental ability, sex, or station in life. We are a Reconciling in Christ Synod.
Our communities are significantly shaped by census data, and Census 2020 will update these numbers for the first time in 10 years. The ELCA is an official partner of the 2020 Census to encourage the most accurate count possible.
In order to boldly and effectively continue our vital witness to the gospel as Church Better Together, your Synod Council has chosen to invest time and resources in four ministry initiatives that form our Next Faithful Step. Gifts for this campaign are invited.
Excellence in Leadership (EiL) seeks to form courageous, resilient, and faithful leaders who are better equipped to build courageous, resilient, and faithful communities of faith, for the sake of the world.
