Called by our faith in a God who loves the whole world, ECLC works for justice for the whole world. Our call in the world is reflected in everything we do, including preaching and faith formation. We believe loving your neighbor is a lifelong faith value, so we provide-and participate in-service opportunities for all ages.
Our tradition shows us that God engages in transformational relationship with us…and we are called into transformational relationship with our neighbor. We seek transformational relationship with each of our 21 mission partnerships by serving with, advocating for, praying for, learning about, and giving to each of these important organizations.
We invite you to learn more! Click on the links below to read more about our partners, or contact their respective ECLC Mission Partner Liaisons, the ECLC volunteers who shepherd our connection to these vital organizations.
