Sister Parish in Rwanda
The Sierra Pacific Synod (SPS-Northern California and Northern Nevada) of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) has established a companion relationship with the Lutheran Church of Rwanda (LCR). SPS congregations are invited to form relationships with specific parishes in Rwanda, sharing their ministries with them through photos, letters, e-mails, video conferencing, as well as lifting up their partners in prayer. SPS congregations send funds quarterly to their partner parish in Rwanda to assist with costs related to ministries of the particular parish. As of 2010, there are 21 congregations in partnership with 15 Rwandan parishes. The two way communication and sharing are a blessing to both Rwandan and ELCA churches as they walk together sharing the good news of Christ in our world.
Holy Redeemer Lutheran has a sister parish in the Nyagatare Parish in the Eastern Province of Rwanda.. The Nyagatare Parish is located in the town of Nyagatare (the district seat of the Nyagatare District, which is the district at the top right of the district map below).
