God's work. Our hands.
Understanding how God calls us to engage in God's work is mission planning. The 2011 Churchwide Assembly took action to support the work of congregations and made this effort one of the highest priorities of this church. The assembly requested congregations, in collaboration with synods, to begin, develop, review or redefine their unique mission plans.
This site contains links to resources that have been created across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and other places to help congregations create mission plans that fit your gifts and context.
