The ELCIC Praise Appeal allows congregations the opportunity to better highlight different aspects of the ministry of the wider church. Designating one Sunday annually, congregations highlight the ELCIC Praise Appeal at a time that works best within their own context.

For the 2023 we are lifting up the theme “Let there be greening” – the theme of our joint gathering with the Anglican Church of Canada – Assembly 2023. The theme lifts up our Easter hope for our church, our world and all of creation. As you prepare to hold an ELCIC Praise Appeal Sunday, consider worship resources and prayers that lift up this theme.

Has your congregation held its ELCIC Praise Appeal Sunday? Let us know! We’d love to hear your stories and share your photos.
