The Northeastern Pennsylvania Synod of the ELCA acknowledges and honors the Lenni-Lenape, Munsee-Lenape, and Susquehannock Peoples who were forcibly removed from this area, and upon whose ancestral homelands we gather. With gratitude to God, we honor the land itself, as well as all our Indigenous siblings who have and who continue to care for this land and call it their home.

  • Becoming a Jesus-centered community that equips diverse leaders so that faithful young people can change our world.

  • Helping and encouraging every leader and every congregation to find partners that can share resources and combine strengths.

GAINING STRENGTH

  • Helping every congregation to understand and embrace their situation and their purpose so that they can live well and serve well and be better ready when the time comes to end well – leaving a lasting, faithful, purposeful legacy.

BEYOND DEATH TO LIFE

VITAL SIGNS FOR NOW

HEALING THE HURT

[Jesus told them]: As you go, proclaim the good news, The kingdom of heaven has come near. Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. (Matthew 10:7)

LOVING THE LAND

[The lord spoke to Moses]: The land shall not be sold in perpetuity, for the land is mine; with me you are but aliens and tenants. Throughout the land that you hold, you shall provide for the redemption of the land. (Leviticus 25:23-24)

ENGAGING THE STRANGER

[The Son of Man will say when he comes in his glory]: Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me… (Matthew 25:34-35)
