Our Purpose Statement

"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."

We are WELCA

What is WELCA?  Why, it is Women of the Evangelical Lutheran church in America.

Our synod organization includes Lutheran women who gather in nearly 200 communities of Northwest Wisconsin, for service, study, advocacy, fellowship and more.

WELCA embraces all kinds of ministries that support our mission of mobilizing women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ.

There is a place for you in Women of the ELCA, both locally and nationally!
