Welcome to the
Virginia Synod

As children of God and followers of Jesus, each of us is a part of the body of Christ and individually members of it. For the sake of God’s mission and ministry, God’s people gather together to share their gifts and to work together to share in God’s mission to love and bless the world. To strengthen our response to God’s love in Virginia, 150 Lutheran congregations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) are joined together as the Virginia Synod.
