We are Church Together
We are church together. From small congregations on the prairie to large congregations in urban centers (and everything in between), we come together as the Southwestern Minnesota Synod.
SW MN Synod ELCA is here for you.

Are you discerning God’s call?
Take a moment to consider: What is God calling you to? God’s call comes to us in wide and varied forms — teaching youth, serving on a board or committee within your congregation, or even leading worship as a lay leader. Others may feel God is calling them to further learning and become ordained as a minister of Word and Sacrament (pastor) or a minister of Word and Service (Deacon).
If you are hearing God’s call, please reach out to Pastor Heather Culuris at the synod office. We would love to hear how God is calling you and help you along your vocation journey!
