It's all about mission!
Yes, it's true. Mission Support is a dollar amount shared from congregations with our synod. Synods and the churchwide organization steward Mission Support to fund ministries within the ELCA and to share with partner ministries such as Lutheran Social Services, campus ministry, outdoor ministry, and ELCA colleges and seminaries. But Mission Support represents so much more than a dollar amount. Mission Support represents our connectedness as a church and our desire to respond to God's call to love and serve our neighbor in as many places as we can across our nation and around the world. In other words, it's all about mission! Here are some tips, talking points and discussion questions you can use in your congregation to make the connection between Mission Support and how we, as a church, respond to God’s call and participate in God's mission. For more information about Mission Support, please contact Victoria Flood or Nick Kiger from the ELCA Mission Support Team.
