ELCA Churchwide Assemblies, which take place every three years, are the primary decision-making body of this church and are a process of communal spiritual discernment. When the Assembly convenes, its voting members meet with confidence in God’s grace around word and water, wine and bread, to carry on their work on behalf of the entire church.

During CWA, voting members will:
  • Hear reports and review the work of churchwide officers, leaders, and units;
  • Receive and consider proposals from synod assemblies;
  • Elect an ELCA Vice President;
  • Establish ELCA churchwide policy;
  • Worship together;
  • Adopt a budget; and
  • Conduct other business related to the ELCA churchwide organization.

The CWA will be live-streamed so everyone can join online. As the CWA begins, the link to connect will be available from the Churchwide Assembly website and the ELCA Facebook page. Be sure to check the schedule to know when to connect for business or worship.
