God’s work never stops. Churchwide office staff are still hard at work – from our homes. Hours and lines of communication remain the same.

“Deacon John helped us through the process of creating a mission endowment fund and then sharing it with the congregation as a giving opportunity. His knowledge and demeanor put everyone at ease. He approached this work as a servant of the church.”

“The services offered by the ELCA Foundation helped bring us peace of mind. We appreciate how they helped us identify and use our financial gifts to support ministries even after we die. We are so glad to know we are leaving a legacy that is family-centered and faith-based.”
