Welcome to the Western Iowa Synod, ELCA
Thanks be to God!!
During the month of October, four Thankfulness Events were held around the synod. Those in attendance heard stories and learned ways mission support dollars have impacted lives and how we live as church together! Thank you to congregations and pastors for the many gifts you share to make this ministry possible!! But most importantly thanks be to God for the many blessings He bestows on us!!

ELCA Monthly Advocacy Updates
“VOTE FAITHFULLY SUNDAY”: ELCA Advocacy has joined with our United Church of Christ and The Episcopal Church ecumenical advocacy partners in observing the Sunday before Election Day as "Vote Faithfully Sunday." This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and lift up every voice in our community, reflect on our commitment to the common good and prepare to cast our ballots. In October, ELCA Advocacy will provide a #votefaithfully toolkit for congregations that includes our #ELCAvotes resources and jointly created worship resources. More info here!
