WELCA (Women of the ELCA)

We are a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. We commit themselves 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, society, and the world. Our mission is to mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ.
