WELCA Sunday Sermon - By Jan Long

Women of the ELCA
The Ripple (SY Synod WELCA News)


WELCA members gathering for a meal during a meeting at Biggerstaff in June 2014

As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, we commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promise healing and wholeness in the church, society and the world.

Mission & Purpose: Women of the ELCA – who are we? We are any woman in the St. John’s Lutheran Church congregation. Participation in any of our projects and events is open to all women in the congregation and other women who subscribe to the above stated purpose. We, the members of the Women of the ELCA of St. John’s, Walhalla, SC, desire to be an instrument of the Holy Spirit to further and support the work of the church and to provide for Christian edification and fellowship. We exist to aid the congregation in ministering to its members and to all whom it can reach with the gospel of Christ. We accomplish this through our three circles: the Morning Circle, the Gloria Shealy Circle and the Lucy Klaren Circle. All women are invited to attend any/all of these circles and are welcome to participate in any project and event scheduled. Each circle meets once a month while the Women of the ELCA meets quarterly. YOU are welcome to join us at any of our meetings. I hope to see you there!
