(WDAY TV) - 5 more churches in the ELCA's Northwestern Minnesota Synod are parting ways.

Congregations include First Lutheran in Roseau, Folden Lutheran near Vining, Faith Lutheran in Mentor, First English Lutheran in Menahga, and Our Redeemer's in Badger.

So far, 15 congregations in the synod have left the ELCA this year which is about 5-percent. The fallout comes after the ELCA's decision to allow people in same-sex relationship to serve in the clergy.
