Women of the ELCA

WELCA is a community of women inspired by their mission to ACT BOLDLY on their faith in Jesus Christ.

WELCA is a national and Synodical organization.  Every woman at CLC is a member of our WELCA unit.  Click on this link to get resources for devotions, retreats and other great information.

You are invited to join our study/fellowship sessions scheduled on the first Tuesday of each month through June 2019.  Sessions are offered at various times to fit your schedule - at 9:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. and are presented at CLC by CLC women who serve as bible study leaders and hostesses.

Enjoy a wonderful year of study and growth. The bible study for 2018-2019 is a 5-part program:
   Part One: "Let Us Pray" a summer study by Anna Madsen led us to consider the Paradoxes of Prayer, the Practices of Prayer, and the Products of Prayer.
   Part Two: "Repentance" will be a three-lesson unit that begins in September. Meghan Johnston Aelabouni helps us consider how in repentance we turn to God, turn to others, and as a church, we turn to the world.
   Part Three: "Christmas Devotional" a one-session study with details to be determined.
   Part Four: "The Gospel of John: Meetings With Jesus" will explore this challenging gospel to consider: seeking and finding faith, coming to faith in Jesus, friends for life in Christ, and seeing the risen Christ.
   Part Five: will be another one session devotional to be determined.

All women are invited to these FIRST TUESDAY of the month sessions. Try one time OR try all the times as you give yourself the gift of time for fellowship and spiritual growth. Information about these monthly Bible study sessions and ALL the other plans for our unit’s year are explained in the 2018-19 WELCA YEARBOOK. Copies of the yearbook are available in the narthex pamphlet rack. This is a wonderful resource about our leaders and WELCA materials, information about local and global mission projects, explanation of our financial efforts, and other current information about Women of the ELCA. 

WELCA also promotes and coordinates various mission projects and special events each month.  For details, watch for news in our weekly announcements and in the monthly WELCA news updates on this website.

Other CLC WELCA ministries include - Hospitality Serving Committee, Prayer Chain, and Sunshine Committee.
