If you have a heart for El Salvador, then this site is for you! This is the place where you can learn about El Salvador, gather resources, follow the ministries of Salvadoran Lutheran Church, learn about what other churches and organizations are doing in El Salvador, and discover ways in which to build up your relationships with the people of El Salvador. This is also the site for the El Salvador Committee of the Greater Milwaukee Synod (GMS) of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

August 6, 2015 Anniversary March

October Prayer Focus: The Greater Milwaukee Synod is hosting a prayer vigil on Tuesday, October 27th from 9:30 to 10:00 AM (CDT) - the exact moments in which Christian clergy in El Salvador will march in a brave act of solidarity, calling for dialog with the gangs and peace in the country. You are invited to stop and pray wherever you may be, or to join a physical circle of prayer at All Peoples Church in Milwaukee.
