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.

Session three: Heirs of the promise

For Paul, Jesus Christ is both the cause and the center of the Christian family. In Christ we become daughters and sons

What’s going on with WELC

Mark your calendars for the Tenth Tri-Annual gathering of women of ELCA . July 13- 16, 2017, at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, MN. We are real women talking about our faith. About our doubts and challenges. About joy and what inspires us. We’ll experience simple conversations between friends—old and new— that will develop into a movement sweeping the church, inspired and infused with the Holy Spirit. Registration now!ster now!
