We are blessed to be a global church! The ELCA is in partnership with many Lutheran churches across the world through the Lutheran World Federation (LWF). The LWF is divided into regions and sub-regions, and one of those sub-regions encompasses the churches in Southern Africa. This region is called LUCSA– the Lutheran Communion in Southern Africa.
LUCSA is the first organization to implement malaria programming through the ELCA Malaria Campaign. They’ve chosen 5 malaria-infested countries to focus on: Angola, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Programs have already begun in these countries– and they’re changing lives. Visit the LUCSA website to read about the malaria programming in LUCSA churches.
We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person--questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world.
