• Welcome

    Greetings from Bishop Hazelwood

    Welcome to the website of the New England Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America aka the Lutheran movement in New England. We are a people passionately committed to rolling up our sleeves and engaging with the vast needs of our times, as well as the complex questions that surround us. Lutherans are people of grace, God's grace. When we are at our best, we embody it in our words and our actions. At the same time, we make no pretense of being a perfect people. Instead we consider ourselves, "sinners anonymous", people who are deeply hungry for God in Christ in our lives and our world.

    James Hazelwood, Bishop
    New England Synod

    Good Shepherd, Westborough is still stirring it up!

    Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Westborough, Mass. is stirring it up with a recent reverse offering. "As part of our 2019 stewardship emphasis, we are sharing stories of how God is at work through each of us at Good Shepherd, stirring us up towards acts of love and mercy to make a difference in the world. Each Sunday in Lent, we are hearing stories of what people at GSLC did with their $20 from the reverse offering in February."
