News and Media from the Slovak Zion Synod and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

This is the official Synod app and the best way to browse posts and news releases from the Synod and the ELCA, read messages from Bishop Kucharek, view daily bible readings for personal reflection, and follow social media communications from the ELCA via Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. We've also included the Revised Common Lectionary, for convenience and reflection on Sundays.

Our app also supports enhanced content for synod events, such as council and committee meetings, and the synod assembly. Accordingly, available app content will be subject to change over time.
