Women of the ELCA

WELCA (aka Women of the ELCA) is a very active group women from our congregation. Although, all women of the ELCA are considered WELCA members, a number of women donate hours of their time weekly/monthly to do work for the church and to serve those in our community. Many of the projects we do include the following:

  • Bible study
  • Prayer chain
  • Nursery schedules, maintenance, and care
  • Baptismal banners
  • Meals on Wheels (coordination and delivery of meals to shut-ins)
  • Lutheran World Relief (quilts and various kits)
  • Apple Festival (pie making, donate cookies, work at event)
  • Lutheran Special Education Ministries (collection of canned-good labels)
  • Monthly Book Club
  • New Member Receptions
  • Reception and gifts for confirmands and high school graduates
  • Gift Bibles for 3rd graders and gifts toward Bible Camp for GSLC youth
  • Thankoffering
  • Spring Fellowship Event/Retreat
  • Christmas Brunch

“When you make and send a Quilt, you are not only comforting someone you have never met, but providing an object that is useful in ways you probably never imagined.”
