Scope and content

The series contains source material pertaining to the ELCC's Division of Congregational Life. It consists of correspondence, minutes, reports, promotional and printed material, relating to congregational life within the ELCC from 1963 to 1988. The series includes records from various associations, committees, programs and more, that were tasked with meeting the needs of members of ELCC churches, and those outside of the Church.

The ELCC's Division of Congregational Life role was to serve congregations with as many aids and resources to help them reach their maximum spiritual potential. The Division of Congregational Life was designed to unify, simplify and make activities more effective, bringing worship, study, outreach, stewardship together so that congregations could have fewer meetings, committees and projects. The Division of Congregational Life was responsible for a range of issues from worship, music, evangelism, stewardship, youth ministries, leadership and more. The Division dealt with everything from parish education, offering workshops, assisting auxiliaries and providing congregations with new material.
