East Central Synod of Wisconsin

The East Central Synod of Wisconsin is a gathering of Lutheran Christians who share the good news of God’s love in Christ with curiosity and courage.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is one of the largest Christian denominations in the US, and a way of being church. The East-Central Synod of Wisconsin is one of 65 regional groupings of congregations and other ministry sites within the ELCA. The area we serve in Wisconsin stretches from the bottom of Lake Winnebago to the Northwoods, from the shores of the Bay to the path of the Wisconsin River.


A synod is a way of organizing the church that helps congregations, ministry sites and leaders stay connected to each other and to the wider church beyond our region and outside our denomination. Because we’re intentionally connected and turned outward in this way, we help each other fight the human tendency to only look inward and care about the people who are closest to and most like us.


We collaborate and support each other in ministry and life, we notice and encourage each other’s gifts and callings, and--connected with the whole church and the whole human family--together our creativity, resources and possibilities are multiplied by God: more than enough.
