The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is the wider church organization across the United States and Caribbean Islands. Our ELCA stewards ministries that send missionaries across the world, provides resources for hunger ministries, and helps to begin new churches. St. Paul’s participates in the life of our wider church through participation in the ELCA Youth Gathering and World Hunger ministries. Click here to learn more about our local Lutheran Synod and their ministry.
