2024 ELCA Synod Assembly Materials

2024 Synod Assembly season looks different across the ELCA, while some choose to gather in person and others gather virtually. To make sure the work of welcome, inclusion, celebration, and advocacy for our LGBTQIA+ siblings continue in our Synod conversations and actions, we have compiled some helpful resources to use. Feel free to share them at your tables, or with those interested in learning more about the Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Journey.

As you support those in your Synod through in-person or virtual tables, here are some resources to help aid in their RIC Journey and continue to set new RIC milestones.
