Evangelical Lutheran Church of PNG Turns 128

This Sunday the followers of the Lutheran church will gather to mark the 128 years of existence of the Lutheran Church in Papua New Guinea.

The event is expected to be a big one and it's ripples will be felt by other Lutheran congregations all over the country.

Over 2000 Lutheran followers in the Morobe province and many more from other regions are expected to turn up for the big day.

Five months ago the Lutheran church successfully hosted the 2014 ELC synod that was held on Karkar island in Madang. One of the big events in the Lutheran Church Calendar.

But the church that will be turning 128 years old is on the brink of a financial crisis. The gathering will come at a time as the church business arms struggles to resolve financial matters and retain the Lutheran shipping company from liquidators.

The organizing committee of the event say while the Lutheran Shipping issue may take months, perhaps years to resolve, their focus is to uphold the gospel of the church and commemorate the arrival of the first German missionary that landed on Finchhafen 128 years ago.
