Arlington Hills Lutheran Church is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the ELCA provides support and guidance to its almost 10,500 member churches in the United States and the Caribbean. Over 4.5 million individuals are represented by the ELCA.
Locally, Arlington Hills Lutheran Church receives guidance and support from the St. Paul Area Synod. While associated with both the national and local organizations, Arlington Hills retains primary leadership and control in decision-making, administrative and financial planning, building and property maintenance, and program planning.
Throughout its history the church has been blessed with hard-working Christ-led Pastors and lay leaders. We continue to be led by devoted members, staff, and elected congregational representatives, the Congregational Council. The church council has 12 members elected by the congregation for 1, 2, and 3 year terms. Each council member also acts as liaison to a specific board of service.
