The assembly offering will be split between the Igumbilo Girl’s School in Tanzania and funding the bus transportation for all Western Iowa Synod youth to the ELCA National Youth Gathering in Minneapolis in July, 2022. Please contribute generously to these important ministries. Our challenge amount is $20,000. Congregations are encouraged to: send their offerings to the Synod office; donate while registering; or donate online as soon as possible so that we can publish our progress to that goal.
