Women of the Church

What is WELCA?

It’s an easy way to say Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Quite a mouthful, we know. Our organization includes Lutheran women who gather in more than 7,000 locations in the U.S. and the Caribbean, for service, study, advocacy, fellowship and more! WELCA embraces all kinds of ministries that support our mission of mobilizing women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ. There is a place for you in Women of the ELCA.

The Women of the church ministry are engaged in the church activities of study circles, quilting groups and volunteering at local thrift shop.

Women’s Small Group: LCOP has a women’s circle that meets the first Wednesday of the month at 1:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. All women are welcome to join this circle and learn more about the Women of the Church.
