Mission:

The Rocky Mountain Synod Veteran Servant Corps Project partners with ELCA faith communities to recognize and support veterans.

About 

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

ZOOM MEETING ONLY

Veterans Experience, Strength & Hope Meeting final_veterans_flyer.jpg

Starting Wednesday, April 27, 11:00am MST

 

This meeting is for all who serve or have served in the Armed Services. Who are looking for support with recovery from substance use disorder. Who are looking comradeship so you know you are not alone. Substance use is about isolation, recovery is about connection. Connection is life on life's terms. You never have to be alone again. Connections begin with reaching out.
