Gathering here Nov. 11-13, the Church Council of
the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) began its meeting with a shared time in
remembrance of William B. “Bill” Horne II, ELCA vice president, who died Aug. 14
in Clearwater, Fla.
The ELCA and the three other member churches of Churches Beyond Borders have compiled a 16-day devotional focusing on the United Nations' "16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence" campaign.
The ELCA Foundation today announced the relaunch of its Endowment Fund Pooled Trust — also known as Fund A — under a new name, the Ministry Growth Fund, which better represents the foundation’s goals for the future.
ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton has issued a pastoral letter on the Reformed Church in America's Oct. 14-19 General Synod meeting, at which a Vision 2020 Report was presented, offering recommendations for the future of the denomination.
