As of February 1, our synod is just under $78,000 away from our overall Malaria Campaign Goal!
On April 25, people across the globe take part in a wide range of activities to mark World Malaria Day. The ELCA Malaria Campaign is doing our part by observing World Malaria Sunday on April 26.
Please visit the Malaria page on the synod website and watch the Synod E-news as resources to help promote World Malaria Day will be made available.
A sign of the new life. In her March column for The Lutheran, ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton reflects on a subtle shift to works righteousness. This Lent she reminds us that Jesus didn’t die to change behaviors, political systems or institutions. He “died to end the fundamental brokenness and estrangement from God ….”

Save the date and celebrate! On Sunday, Sept. 13, 2015, congregations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America will again have the opportunity to gather together for "God's work. Our hands." Sunday and celebrate who we are as the ELCA – one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor.
It is time to invite the children, youth, and families of your congregation to the ministry offered at your camps in North Carolina and Florida. Once again, February is Camp Month and NovusWay encourages congregations and individuals to share their camp experience.
All these topics are available FREE at the Practice Discipleship (PD) website. Our North Carolina Synod PD Coach is Emily Harkins from Augsburg, Winston-Salem.
