Congregations Seeking Rostered Leaders
Several congregations without regularly called pastoral leadership are in an interim period. These congregations are at various stages in the process, from newly vacant to call extended.
ELCA Malaria Campaign
A child dies from malaria every 60 seconds. Today we are in a special moment where we could turn this around. Working though Lutheran churches in Africa, the ELCA Malaria Campaign is uniquely positioned to provide mosquito nets, insecticides, medication, health care, education and more to help eliminate deaths from this disease—for good.

Living Into the Future Together (LIFT)
At its November 15, 2009, meeting, the ELCA Church Council authorized the creation of a task force, which took the name Living into the Future Together: Renewing the Ecology of the ELCA (LIFT). The LIFT task force first met on January 14, 2010, and formed seven work groups to respond to basic questions raised about the changing life of the ELCA. This work continued until March 17, 2011, when the task force submitted its report to the Council.
The LIFT report is concerned with the future identity of this church as it faces the challenges posed by the major changes that have occurred in both our culture and the ELCA since this church’s founding in 1988.

Remember Your Hunger Offering!
Pastors and other congregational leaders: Remember your hunger offering for the synod assembly. Each year, we collect an offering to specifically address the justice issue of hunger in our world. Some congregations employ a "noisy offering," some use the ELCA Hunger Boxes, some use quarter containers or designate a date to collect a special offering. Whatever method you employ, be sure to send your Hunger Offering to the synod office by the middle of May so that we can announce our total at synod assembly. One third of the assembly hunger offering will go to the ELCA Hunger Appeal, and 2/3 will go to food sustainability efforts in Malawi.
2013 Synod Assembly
The Northwest Synod of Wisconsin will elect a new bishop at our synod assembly June 1-2, 2013.
This year's theme, All Things New, coincides with the theme of the ELCA's 25th Anniversary and aptly describes the newness that accompanies a change in the office of synodical bishop.
