We as the Rocky Mountain Synod, ELCA invite all into the fullness of God’s love. This invitation is inclusive of people of every race, national origin, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, physical or mental ability, sex, or station in life. Rather than using our differences to divide us, we pledge to use our differences as gifts for our work together.

We are Church. Better Together.
Engaging our Story
Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Synod resource page for the first phase of our synod’s celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation: Re•Formation: Engaging Our Story.
The following resources are presented so that the congregations and conferences of our synod can, in the Fall of 2016, focus on the honest telling of our heritage: the story of the Reformation, the story of the ELCA, and the story of each congregation.
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) has joined faith-based groups and other organizations in endorsing standards of conduct for the upcoming U.S. presidential debates. The standards are proposed by the National Institute for Civil Discourse.
