About the Central  States Synod Lutherans Restoring Creation  Mission Table:

The 2015 Central States Synod Assembly adopted a resolution to become a LRC Synod. A CSS Lutherans Restoring Creation Mission Table was formed and members have been active in getting organized, setting goals, forming a vision, gathering information from congregations, and planning this retreat for interested individuals in February. CSS LRC Mission Table members are committed to helping equip our Synod congregations and members live out our vocation as earth-keepers who care for creation.

The 2018 Central States Synod Assembly adopted a resolution to encourage congregations to become ‘Green Congregations’ by forming green teams.
