Women of ELCA


Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

 The National WELCA organization includes Lutheran women across the country and in parts of the Caribbean who regularly meet  for service opportunities, bible studies, advocacy training/groups, fellowship and more!

The Mission of WELCA, as stated on the WELCA website: http://www.womenoftheelca.org/

“As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.”
