ELCA Malaria CampaignThe ELCA has set a goal of raising $15 million dollars by 2015 to end preventable deaths from malaria in Africa. To that end the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin has pledged to raise $250,000 to meet that goal.

World Malaria Day

World Malaria Day 2015 – Sunday, April 26!
From the beginning, the ELCA Malaria Campaign has had a goal to raise $15 million by 2015. Can you believe that 2015 has begun? Now is the time to mark your calendars for World Malaria Day 2015! World Malaria Day is observed internationally on April 25, which happens to land on a Saturday this year. We are encouraging congregations to commemorate World Malaria Day on Sunday, April 26, 2015. This will be the final observance of World Malaria Day within the ELCA Malaria Campaign, and it is our hope that many people participate! - See more at:http://www.elca.org/News-and-Events/blogs/ELCAMalariaCampaign

Use the ideas below to plan a service to draw attention to the malaria crisis and what our church is doing to make a difference. Here’s how your congregation can get involved:

1) Announce that on Sunday, April 26, you will be joining congregations across the country and people around the world in the fight against malaria by observing World Malaria Day.

2) Invite your congregation to dedicate its offering or take a special offering for the ELCA Malaria Campaign. Order free offering envelopes by April 12 for timely delivery. Or checks can be mailed to ELCA Malaria Campaign at P.O. Box 71764, Chicago, IL 60694-1764. Be sure to include "World Malaria Day" in the memo line.

3) Find service ideas on how to involve the entire congregation,  http://www.elca.org/Resources/ELCA-Malaria-Campaign

4) Pray for those affected by malaria by using the suggested prayers, litanies and hymns specifically made for World Malaria Day.

5) Show ELCA Malaria Campaign videos before or during church service.  Click on the IMPACT Tab for several different videos to choose from at http://www.elca.org/Resources/ELCA-Malaria-Campaign
