What is WELCA? It's an easy way to say Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
WELCA's mission is to mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ.
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 out 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.
At St. John our WELCA group is active in sharing the love of Jesus by sewing blankets, knitting/crocheting hats and scarves, preparing meals for bereaved families following a funeral service, and so much more!
