Our synod partners with Lutheran SeniorLife to develop and support ministries that help the people of our congregations improve all aspects of their wellness: spiritual, physical, mental/emotional, financial, vocational, social/relational, and environmental.

Remember in your prayers this Memorial Day the generations past and present that have served our country in the armed forces and especially those who have given their lives in that service. (ELCA Prayer Ventures, 2013)
