Icelandic Evangelical Lutheran Synod of America

Icelandic Evangelical Lutheran Synod of America

Icelandic Evangelical Lutheran Synod of America was a Lutheran church body in North America. The Synod was founded in June 1885 at a constitutional convention in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The early churches in this body were located in Manitoba and North Dakota. Later churches could be found in Minnesota and Washington in the United States and in Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan in Canada. The synod was never a large synod. The synod joined the United Lutheran Church in America in 1940 remaining as a separate synod in that denomination. When the ULCA became part of the Lutheran Church in America, the Icelandic Synod was dissolved and the member churches were placed in geographical synods.
