Our Purpose

WELCA (Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America)

Our Purpose: 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.

Monthly Meetings: We meet the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm for Bible study, discussion, a brief business meeting and fellowship. During a Spring month, we invite women from area churches to join us for a special program featuring a guest speaker. Past programs and topics have included quilting, container gardening and antiques.

Projects: Assembling quilts, school kits, health kits and layettes for Lutheran World Relief; hosting funeral luncheons; coordinating Christmas in July gifts for those in need within our community; purchasing fair trade coffee for the fellowship table; supporting disaster relief efforts and educational projects through Mother's Day and Thankoffering donations; furnishing pizza for the VBS program, coordinating Head Start Christmas gifts in December for those in need; participating in the Central Conference Spring conference and Fall retreat, and coordination/serving lunch annually at the Salvation Army.

In addition to visiting the sick, homebound and those in nursing homes, our women also coordinate the Altar Guild, St. Paul prayer chain, Easter Breakfast, Advent Breakfast, Women’s Thankoffering Service and October activities at the Good Samaritan Center.

Continuing Emphasis: World Hunger, Witnessing, Literacy, Prayer, Good Samaritan Home, Missionaries, women's and children's needs in our community.
