ELCA's Upstate NY Synod (of which Luther Memorial is a part) is the Companion Synod for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Zambia. These relationships connect Lutheran churches like Luther Memorial throughout the world with ELCA synods and congregations; they are concrete expressions of the communion and fellowship. Each of the 65 synods has at least one international church companion and many have additional relationships. Of note, the Upstate NY Synod also serves as the companion synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Zimbabwe (ELCZ).
