Did you know that there is a "Season of Creation" that is encouraged in our church-year? There are resources available; click here for more info. Click here for ELCIC's page.

Mission as Hope Appeal
Since this annual appeal began in 2009, it has allowed us to continue funding ongoing mission in our Synod, ministries like Luther Village, Lutheran Urban Ministry, Youth and Young Adult Programming and Cameroon visits.
Perhaps even more significantly, it has provided resources to do some new things in our Synod each year, which would have not been possible with the regular benevolence dollars.
Please find further information, including letter to congregations and bulletin inserts, here.
