Stories of Faith in Action (2020-2021)

Stories are the foundation of our faith. They teach us how to serve God with humility. They remind us of our identity as God’s beloved children. They bring us together and give us hope for the future.

Given the challenges of 2020, we need stories of hope and unity more than ever before. That’s where your 2020-2021 edition of “Stories of Faith in Action”comes in.

STORIES OF FAITH IN ACTION
2020-2021
This annual publication illustrates how God is at work across the ELCA through your generosity. It highlights how a portion of your offering, called Mission Support, advances the ministry of our church — particularly the ways the ELCA nurtures vital congregations, raises up leaders and grows the global church. Most importantly, it’s one way we say thank you for your faithful generosity to your congregation, your synod and the churchwide organization — by showing your offering at work.

Dive into the latest edition, which is now available digitally and includes:

  • A special message from ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton.
  • Nine inspiring stories from around the country and world.
  • Your 2019 financial report on Mission Support — the portion of your offering your congregation shares with your synod and your synod shares with the churchwide organization.
  • A story-based devotional for use at Bible studies or committee meetings.
