ABSTRACT:
The Press Releases collection contains news releases with information regarding church resolutions, leaders, conventions, financial news, and events.  The press releases were sent to religious and secular communications media, including print and radio.  The Lutheran Council in the USA (LCUSA) was a cooperative agency of four Lutheran church bodies: the American Lutheran Church; the Lutheran Church in America; the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod; and the Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Churches.  LCUSA existed until 1988.  The News Bureau which created the press releases was part of the Division of Public Relations from 1967-73 when it became part of the Office of Communication and Interpretation.


HISTORICAL NOTE:
The Lutheran Council in the USA was formed in 1967 when the two churches of the National Lutheran Council, the American Lutheran Church and the Lutheran Church in America joined with the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod and the Synod of Evangelical Lutheran Churches.
