Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (WELCA)
WELCA is an organization that welcomes all women of the church. During the year, they work on completing projects to help provide for those in need. They are active participants in the Richmond Conference, Virginia Synodical Women’s Organization (VSWO), and Women of the ELCA. As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, they commit themselves to grow in faith, affirm their gifts, support on another in their calls, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.
This group normally meets once per month on a Saturday morning for fellowship, study of topics derived from the VSWO and WELCA publications, and topics concerning women and current events.
