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.
