Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)
The ELCA is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States, with about 4 million members in nearly 10,000 congregations across the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. For us, as the ELCA, this faith comes through the good news of Jesus Christ and gives us the freedom and the courage to wonder, discover and boldly participate in what God is up to in the world.
We are a church that is always being made new, and at the same time, is deeply rooted in Scripture, Lutheran theology and Lutheran confessions. We are also rooted in the vibrant, diverse communities and rich histories of our congregations. It’s through these roots that the Holy Spirit guides and nourishes us so that we can be a church that is both resilient and always new.
We cannot do this work alone..
We at Grace Lutheran Church cannot do this work alone and that's why we're proud to be a part of the Indiana-Kentucky Synod of the Evangelical Church in America (ELCA). We're one of 187 congregations in Indiana and Kentucky, and over 9,200 throughout the United States and Caribbean.
Additionally, we've formed partnerships with organizations throughout the Elkhart community that help us to do the work that we are called to do!
