Ministry Basics Recordings
A series of Ministry Basics Zoom Webinars were offered throughout 2021 to replace our annual Equipping Congregations Day, which did not happen because of COVID-19. The ECD planning team is evaluating and planning for more equipping opportunities in the future. We have recorded most of the Zoom gatherings from 2021. These webinars remain relevant and include valuable information for you and your congregation.
Please share and enjoy these recordings!

Sermons / Worship Services
“Synod” literally means “walking together.” Your Synod Staff is here to walk with you at all times, and we offer these sermons and services to thank and support the vital and creative ministries that continue and thrive in these days.
We all come to worship just as we are, and that is particularly true today. So wherever you are today, know that all are welcome for who you are, as you are.
This video collection are stories that should be told. They are helpful videos that share stories of ministries creating new ways to spread God’s word from around our synod.
