Return to Wittenberg (R2W) is an organization sponsored by pastors and laymen affiliated with congregations of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) and Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS). Our mission is to promote, develop, and strengthen a Confessional understanding of the Lutheran faith in the millennial generation and beyond.

What Does This Mean?

  • Why do we gather for worship every Sunday?
  • I feel closer to God in nature than in a pew; do I really need to go to church?
  • What is the point of repeating the same old songs week after week?
  • Shouldn’t we be more focused on reaching the lost?
  • I’ve been going to church my whole life and I don’t know why.
