Hurricane Relief

The 2018 hurricane season continues to produce strong storms with potentially devastating impacts to the United States. Currently, the Lutheran Disaster Response staff, network, and other partners are monitoring the paths of this season of hurricanes.

As a church, we’re ready to stand by our neighbors as they recover from the hurricanes. Lutheran Disaster Response is assessing the situation and coordinating with synods and affiliated social ministry organizations in the areas that are in the path of these storms.

Your gifts designated for Hurricane Response will be used entirely (100 percent) for direct response until it is complete. Together, we can help provide immediate and long-lasting support for those in path of these hurricanes. Click here to link to the ELCA Hurricane Response donation page.

We are Lutheran

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton talks about what it means to be a Lutheran in this 2018 Synod Assembly video, “We are Lutheran.”

Three Sides is a monthly podcast featuring stories from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). As a church that believes God is calling us into the world – together, Three Sides will present diverse voices from across the ELCA. Listen as we share unique stories from the many expressions of this church.
