“When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who comes from the Father, he will testify on my behalf. You also are to testify because you have been with me from the beginning.”

In honor of this anniversary, the Northeastern Iowa Synod has set a “Celebrating Renewal” theme for 2015 through 2020 to recognize historical leaders whose actions helped shape the church today. Throughout 2017, we will honor Martin Luther with a focus on Gospel, which was at the heart of Luther’s ministry. Join us as we examine the Gospel, what it is, and how we proclaim it in Word, deed, sacraments, education, arts and music.
