Your congregation or synod office received a kick-off packet with additional details in January, as well as a Pentecost Sunday packet in April and a Global Church Sunday packet in July. View these materials on our resources page, under the "Annual Themes" tab.”
As a way to deepen understanding and increase participation, the annual campaign themes engagement model allows synods and congregations, if they choose, to follow an annual schedule giving special emphasis to one campaign priority for a year at a time. The proposed schedule will assist in the implementation of special, over-and-above fundraising goals, activities and events to help reach the campaign goal.
|2014: ELCA Malaria Campaign (dedicated to reaching the $15 million goal and a strong finish to this specific campaign, which began in 2011)
|2015: Congregations (including Renewing Congregations, ELCA New Congregations and Disability Ministries)|
|2016: ELCA World Hunger
|2017: Global Church (Missionaries and Young Adults in Global Mission, Global Ministries and International Women Leaders)
