Women of the ELCA
Did you know? If you are a member of Grace Lutheran AND you are a woman…you are already a member of WELCA at Grace!! Join us for our monthly meeting on the 2nd Thursday of each month in the Fireside room at 6:00 p.m. All women are invited to attend meetings.
One Purpose: 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.
One Mission: To mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ. To accomplish this, we focus on three mission areas:
- Community: To enable each woman to value herself and others as created in God’s image and redeemed through Christ; and to build up and celebrate relationships that are global, diverse, and interdependent.
- Growth: To provide a variety of learning experiences that strengthen each woman as a whole person, develop her potential, and equip her for ministry.
- Action: To enable women to articulate and act upon their faith as disciples of Christ in all arenas of life.
