In Mission for Others

assist those affected by flooding in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and wildfires in Alberta.

The ELCIC, through its partnership with Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR), is appealing to its members to provide support to families, especially children and youth, whose lives have been devastated by the violent civil war in Syria.

Donations will help provide shoes, clothes and hygiene kits to the most vulnerable people, including those who are chronically ill or disabled, pregnant women and mothers with infants.

ELCIC members are asked to donate to the appeal by making a designated offering donation for "Syrian Refugee Relief" through their congregation.

Ecumenical & International Life

Mennonite Lutheran

Within the ecumenical sphere there are those relationships which take on the character of Full Communion. The ELCIC enjoys such a relationship with the Anglican Church of Canada under the terms of the Waterloo Declaration.

Anglicans and Lutherans increasingly gather in Waterloo Ministries - these are communities sharing rostered ministers, worship, facilities and programs. We regularly lift one another up in an annual Cycle of Prayer. And in July 2013, Lutherans and Anglicans gathered in Ottawa for a joint assembly.

Faith & Worship

Every two years, the ELCIC and Anglican Church of Canada host a national gathering of youth and their leaders. CLAY 2014 takes place August 14-17, 2014 in Kamloops, BC. The theme for this gathering is Worth It.

At CLAY, participants will encounter scripture in meaningful ways, experience ancient and modern ways of worship, learn together in special interest forums, enjoy fellowship opportunities, explore Kamploops, and make connections with youth from all over Canada.
