Our Mission Dollars at Work

Each congregation of the Metropolitan Chicago Synod shares a portion of its budget as undesignated mission support for ministry through the wider church. Over fifty percent (50.88%) of the mission support is forwarded to ELCA churchwide ministries, which is then made available to congregations and ELCA-related ministries to fund thousands of efforts, from education to social services, to worship.
