Journey with the Global Church in 2017

11:29 07 December in ELCA Updates

As members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), we believe we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbors. And next year, as we commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we have the unique opportunity to reaffirm this commitment through Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA and the Global Church annual theme year.

Throughout the Global Church year, we will be celebrating and encouraging support of three programs – Missionaries and Young Adults in Global Mission, International Women Leaders, and Global Ministries – with a variety of special learning and giving activities. In addition to year-round engagement ideas, we will highlight these programs through three major events:

Will you join us? Your congregation or synod will receive a kick-off packet in early January, including the International Women’s Day booklet designed to help you celebrate, share and support this important work. Materials will also be featured on the campaign website as they are made available.

We look forward to partnering with you for The Campaign for the ELCA’s Global Church annual theme year! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at campaignforELCA@elca.org or 773-380-2612.
