Uniting with other Christians in prayer and action

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America seeks to manifest the unity given to the people of God by living together in the live of Christ and by joining with other Christians in prayer and action to express and preserve the unity which the Spirit gives.

Colorado Council of Churches

The Colorado Council of Churches is a community of communions formed by God, defined by Jesus Christ and shaped by the Holy Spirit for the purpose of enabling the member communions to be a fuller expression of the one Body of Christ than any one communion can be by itself. Through our relationships and our actions together, we shall manifest and give witness to the unity and mission of Christ's Church in Colorado.
Pastor John Petty of All Saints Lutheran Church in Aurora; Brad Wood,  director of Lutheran Advocacy Ministry-Colorado (RMS); and Bishop James Gonia are the synod's representative on the Colorado Council of Churches.

New Mexico Conference of Churches

The purpose of the New Mexico Conference of Churches was stipulated in the constitution adopted at the organizational meeting:
  • To manifest oneness in Jesus Christ as Divine Lord and Saviour 
  • To express through fellowship, cooperation and service the essential unity of the Christian Church 
  • To provide, without infringing upon jurisdictional autonomy, an inter-denominational agency for cooperation in Christian education, ecumenical planning, Christian social relations, worship, evangelism, Christian world fellowship, missions, and other Christian services which the member communions may desire and authorize 
Ruth Hoffman, Lutheran Advocacy Ministry NM director  and Bishop James Gonia (RMS) are the synod's representative on the New Mexico Conference of Churches.

Wyoming Association of Churches

Following the example that Jesus set for us, the Wyoming Association of Churches (WAC), a state-wide ecumenical organization, works to achieve equal justice and dignity for all. These ideals are attained through education, interaction, cooperation and understanding.
