Did You Know that the ELCA is

the Most Ecumenical Church Body In the United States?

 

Always new
Since 1997, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has been in Full Communion (with interchangeable sacraments and clergy) with the Episcopal Church USA, the Presbyterian Church USA, the United Methodist Church, the United Church of Christ, the Reformed Church in America and the Moravian Church.  (None of them are in Full Communion with each other, only with the ELCA.)

That is why, each Sunday, prayers are offered for congregations of these churches in Full Communion with the ELCA: to highlight our unique openness to other traditions.
