Women's Ministry-WELCA

Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

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.

Our WELCA groups are meeting on Zoom for the time being.

Special Events: We held a Zoom tea in May with Scones, Jam, Clotted Cream, and tea delivered to participants home which was awesome! We also had a Christmas Tea on Zoom with Christmas Cookies, Tea and Hot Chocolate delivered to the ladies homes.



This event is open to all. Let Patty- know you would like some goodies delivered on Saturday, February 13th.

This year we have hosted the Women’s Spring Tea, Created Water Wise Terrariums and learned about drought tolerant plants, had a cookie baking party, hosted the Women’s Christmas Dinner, Beachin' Bunco and attended Girls Night Out (a wonderful evening at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church held four times a year).

There are also 4 bible study groups that women attend.

They meet in the home and each group is different. Find the one that is right for you. It is often said that a circle sister is a wonderful friend, and confidant. The first to pray for you and with you. Each circle (bible study group) is a wonderful support for those attending.
