Women of the ELCA


WELCA Mission Statement
To mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ.

WELCA 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.


Renew yourself and your faith. Explore ways to hear and respond to God’s call. Rejoice in all that God has done for you. The WELCA Eighth Triennial Gathering, July 14-17 in Spokane, Washington, is a time to join in fellowship with our community of women and discover how you can live and embrace your faith in new and wonderful ways.
