As a synod
our churches join in walking together in faith and service to our Lord Jesus Christ. As people of God, we join together in mission and loving service to others, committed to proclaiming the love of Christ to everyone.
Out in the world
we are helping neighbors and friends, seeking justice, celebrating diversity, feeding the hungry, defending the poor, sheltering the homeless, and advocating for peace.
that God has richly blessed us, and seek to be a blessing to others in our mission and outreach. Jesus Christ is the focus of who we are and what we do as Christians. May our identity and service be a reflection of God’s grace shown to us!

Years of Service
Transforming through Ministry
Our Synod is spread from the East Coast out west as far as the Chicago area. We are a special expression of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the largest Lutheran denomination in the United States.
Rooted in Mission
We are defined by our focus on our missions and ministries in this church of Christ, and in that, we find our reach around the globe is not limited by geography or borders.
Investing in Stewardship
Stewardship is a spiritual matter, not a financial one. In order to live up to our identity as good Christians, we must live generously. This is paramount to being a witness of God’s love to all people.
Renewing in Wellness
Many of us don’t dare to breathe the word ‘vacation’ around others. But remember that in order to be good leaders in this church, we must be healthy leaders as well. Self Care is integral to our identity here.
