Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (WELCA)

Our Mission: To mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ.

What WELCA does…

We’re so much more than just a bunch of women gathered in the kitchen!

At the Lutheran Church of Our Savior our
WELCA members are a diverse group of mothers, grandmothers, sisters and daughters that have found a common purpose in serving our church and the causes that we have collectively deemed important.

Friendship Circles Friendship and Study Groups for Women (WELCA circles)

WELCA circles are more than just Bible studies. They offer the opportunity to build friendships between women in an informal and supportive environment. New members are always welcome!

Lutheran women have a long and rich history of studying God’s word together. At our monthly circle meeting the studies we share are taken from the Gather magazine.

Gather monthly Bible studies give women a way to dig deeper into Scripture, become more knowledgeable about Lutheran theology, grow in faith, and connect with other women. More than just Bible study, every issue contains articles that inform, challenge, provoke thoughts and conversation, offer comfort and encouragement, and help us to live out our faith in our communities and in the world.
