Looking for Seed Money for a Project?

Each year, the Congregational Life Committee (CLC) of the Northern Illinois Synod awards grants to be used as seed money to inspire and empower the people of the Northern Illinois Synod to develop creative new ideas for ministry.

Any congregation or group related to a congregation of the Northern Illinois Synod can apply for a CLC grant. The grant request guidelines are subject to revision by the CLC.

The grant money must be used to meet the mission of the CLC – to support and equip congregations to carry out their ministries in the areas of Worship, Youth Ministry, Parish Planning, Education, and Stewardship.

Find out more and apply online. Applications are due December 31.
