Sweet Deal for CAR is Back!
Once again we are in the midst of the Sweet Deal for C.A.R. project to help support the ministries of our companion synod partner, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Central African Republic. M&M Mini's can be picked up in Bismarck and Minot. Reserve yours now and check out all the resources needed to promote this project in your congregation at our Sweet Deal page.
Missional Bible Study Now Available
During the 2012 Synod Assembly, three Bible Studies were presented with a focus on mission. After feedback from Assembly participants, the materials have been revamped and integrated into a new Bible Study resource that can help guide your congregation through a missional process of reflection and discernment around who God is calling you to be in your community. These documents are provided in both .doc & .pdf formats. The intent is that they are to serve as guides for your conversation. By providing them in .doc format you will be able to edit the materials to fit your context. Some may choose to offer them in a 3 session format; others might break each session down into several sessions. We look forward to hearing your feedback. If you use these sessions, please send us a summary of your experience and the mission plan that your congregation develops through the process.
During the summer of 2011 communities across North Dakota experienced the power of flooding water. As they rebuild and recover, you can help by joining us in creating a powerful Flood of Love. Visit the site to find resources related to flood recovery and response, including information about volunteer coordination, spiritual care during disaster, ways to give financially to support recovery efforts, and much more.
