Ecumen is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Our name comes from the word Ecumenical, which in turn is derived from the Greek word for home: "oikos." Ecumen's roots were planted by the Lutheran Church in 1862. The Church is an important part of our heritage and who we are today.
