Committees, led by a board member and staffed by a group of dedicated volunteers, are where a majority of the planning, organization, and services delivered to the community originate.  As an all-volunteer group, the ELNCA is always looking for new volunteers to help us “get it done.”

If you would like to become involved, click on any of the committees to learn more about their work and contact the board member who heads it up to volunteer.  Or if you’re not sure what you’d like to do and would like to become more involved, contact us.  We’ll help you find a spot to put your talents to work!
