Welcome to
The Metropolitan New York Synod

Our synod is the regional expression of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. There are nearly 200 congregations across New York City, Long Island, and seven upstate counties. The Rev. Dr. Robert Rimbo serves as our bishop. As Lutherans, we are worshipping God, helping friends and neighbors, celebrating diversity, feeding the hungry, working for justice, and advocating for peace. Join us!
