Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Fargo's largest ELCA congregation is joining two others that have suspended funding to the ELCA.

In a letter on its website, Hope Lutheran states the “Leadership has suspended all financial support to the ELCA, and will develop a process to define who our mission partners will be."

Hope joins Fargo’s 2nd largest ELCA congregation, First Lutheran and Pontoppidan in making the move.

They all site the recent ELCA church wide assembly decisions to find ways to recognize, support, and hold publicly accountable committed gay relationships and to allow gay people to serve in the ministry.
