The European American Lutheran Association is one of six ethnic associations in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It may seem strange for White persons to think of themselves as ethnic. The EALA came into being at the invitation of the other ethnic associations so that all peoples could be represented equally at the Table of Color. If you're White European in heritage, we invite you to join us.
