Synod Assembly Video Report from Bishop Gary M. Wollersheim.

Our churchwide organization released a brand new elca.org website Monday, November 18, 2013. Because of that, many of the links on our nisynod.org site that went to the elca.org site no longer work. Please be patient as we find and fix all these links.
In the meantime, your best bet is to go directly to elca.org and use their search feature to find what you're looking for. Thank you!
