WELCA is an easy way to say Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
WELCA is for all women of our congregation. All are invited to join for monthly meetings with Bible study, lunch and fellowship or participate in service projects that benefit the congregation, community or world. We also have an annual weekend retreat at the Isle of Palms in January or February. Enjoy getting to know other members in a relaxed setting, experience worship and Bible study while also enjoying food and fun. Check the church calendar for meeting days and times!
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.
Women of the ELCA
Beginning Tuesday, April 19th, we will begin a new book study via Zoom. We will meet the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. and will be reading and discussing Seven Women: And the Secret of Their Greatness by Eric Metaxas. Each month we will discuss one of the seven women so if you are unable to attend every month, you will still be able to participate. The paperback book is available at www.christianbook.com and paperback and Kindle editions are available on Amazon. There is a 2015 and a 2016 edition. If you already have the book, either will be fine; but, if you are purchasing the book, look for the 2016 edition.
