  • 2021 ELCIC Summer Sermon Series

    For the second summer in a row, ELCIC Bishops and Assistants to the Bishops are coming together to provide a series of sermons available for congregations to use from May 23 to September 12, 2021.

    These resources include text (Word and PDF versions) and video (High and Low resolution) files of the sermons for each week. These are downloadable files that may be used as part of your congregation’s worship in whatever way works best for your context.

    To access these resources, please complete the following form: https://form.jotform.com/ELCIC/2021-summer-sermon-series

  • To begin growing our focus on reading the Bible, we invite you to join us in a Bible book of the month book-club type of approach. Each month from September 2020 to August 2021, we hope the whole church will focus on reading the same book of the Bible.  We have asked a broad array of people from across the ELCIC to write questions to help us engage more fully in a discussion of the monthly readings.

  • A New Hymn from Richard Reimer and Kathy Sparo

    I wish to offer this hymn to you, Wind from God, for any time in the church year, but especially in the season after Pentecost, as it appeals to the wind, breath, Spirit of God, translations of the same word in the languages of the Bible. Though the text was completed last fall, the verses seem all the more relevant now, in this time of “viral fear”.I’m most grateful for the four part harmony arranged by Kathy Sparo. Our hope is that the hymn will be sung widely. We therefore grant permission freely for its use in congregational, campus ministry, camp or other settings. We only ask that you acknowledge permission granted by “Richard Reimer, text and tune, and Kathy Sparo, arrangement.”
