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 (WELCA) is made up of Lutheran women who gather in over 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 the mission of mobilizing women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ. There is a place for you in Women of the ELCA!

Outreach & Fellowship Committee:
The congregational unit of women of Christ Lutheran Church gathers once a month (2nd Saturday at 9:00 a.m.) nine months of the year. The gatherings generally involve a speaker, business meeting, and food! All women of the church are considered members. We have a small but mighty core group that carries on the work of the group.
WELCA is the women’s ministry organization of the ELCA. It is separately incorporated and is not an auxiliary of the church. It is financially independent and responsible for its own financial affairs. Financial support comes from individual and group offerings and gifts.
Christ Lutheran’s WELCA unit holds 2-3 fundraisers each year. The proceeds from these fundraisers are divided between the needs of Christ Lutheran Church and local charitable organizations. Funds are also forwarded to the Synodical Women’s Organization and the Churchwide Women’s Organization.
