Women of the ELCA

Monthly for Women

Women of the ELCA (WELCA) is a community of women gathered together to use our God given gifts in ministry to others to promote healing and wholeness in the church, community and the world.

All women who worship or are members of an ELCA congregation are invited to participate.

Each year, WELCA serves the local community through a number of projects, which have included:

  • Collecting Christmas cookies & gifts for the Mental Health Association
  • Making tie quilts for residents in local nursing homes
  • Collecting items for the “Bags of Love” drive
  • Hosting Bingo parties at Mulberry Health Center and supplying prizes
  • Helping fill Thanksgiving Meal Baskets for the Salvation Army
  • Providing meals and helping with events at St. Paul’s

This group meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each from (September – May) and also participates in the local World Day of Prayer and Church Women United.

On the first Sunday in May, Women of the ELCA also hosts the Ladies Spring Banquet.
