What is Mission Support?
Mission Support is the portion of your weekly financial offering that your congregation shares with your synod and the churchwide organization, the other two expressions of this church. As members of the ELCA, we do mission together through our financial giving. We do God’s work in ways that no individual, congregation, or synod can do alone.
In our Southwestern Minnesota Synod, 51.5% of your Mission Support offerings are being shared with churchwide ministries of our ELCA and the other 48.5% funds ministries of our synod.
