Racial Justice Resources

Emanuel 9 Resources (June 17 recognition)

Note from ELCA Worship leader, Deacon John Weit: 

"The ELCA will not produce a national prayer service in 2021. We look to focus on local and synod observances to mark the commemoration. Refreshed worship resources for the Commemoration of the Emanuel Nine are available in PDF and Word formats, including Scripture suggestions for a commemoration service. Additional resources for marking this commemoration in synods and congregations can be found at ELCA.org/EmanuelNine."
