Missed a service? Would like to know what is happening at ELCIC? Each week we post a sermon and news updates from across the ELCIC.
Bishop Larry invites lay and rostered leaders to join him in a Synod-wide online Bible study: each Tuesday in Lent beginning February 27th at 9:00am or 7:00pm.
In her book Witness at the Cross, Amy-Jill Levine examines how the people at the cross each have distinct roles to play in the Gospels. For each, Jesus has a particular meaning and message and from each, we learn how those meanings and messages cross the centuries to any who would come to the cross today. Join us for six 75-minute sessions to meet and learn from those who were witnesses at the cross.
