Responding to the World
Serving our Neighbors Outside the U.S.
Addressing AIDS in Uganda. Rebuilding homes destroyed by hurricanes on the Gulf Coast or a tsunami in Indonesia. Supporting schools in the Holy Land. In today’s world, there are countless important ways we as a church work together with our neighbors at home and around the world.
The ELCA, through its missionaries, companion churches, and partner agencies, works every day to proclaim the love of God and make the world a better place to live. While we are the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, our hands reach out in partnerships across the globe.
