The Rocky Mountain Synod Veteran Servant Corps Project partners with ELCA faith communities to recognize and support veterans.
In 2007, at the Tenth Biennial Churchwide Assembly of the Evangelical Church in America (ELCA), the assemblage approved a Memorial that stated “All congregations of this church will support military personnel and their families. The ELCA will provide a welcoming and supportive environment for returning military personnel, and it recommended that the ELCA Conference of Bishops and ELCA Bureau of Federal Chaplaincy Ministries explore ways that the ELCA ‘might effectively provide healing ministries to military veterans and their families.’”
Veteran Servant Corps Project (VSCP) was approved by the Rocky Mountain Synod (RMS) Council on May 1, 2020. The idea for this ministry, though, has been years in the making. One of the tenets of Rocky Mountain Synod Veteran Servant Corps Project is to provide training for ELCA clergy and pastoral care support staff to understand veteran issues.
- VSCP provides no-cost retreats at ELCA camps for veterans and their families
- VSCP provides training for ELCA clergy and pastoral care support staff to understand veteran issues
- VSCP provides ideas and materials for veteran awareness and celebrations in ELCA communities
We hope you will find these resources helpful in your efforts to support our veterans.
Retreats: Three no-cost retreats are planned for 2021 for Military Couples/Veteran Couples. More information will be available soon.
