The Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Amercia (WELCA) – 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.
Purpose Statement of the WELCA
The women of St. Paul Lutheran Church endeavor to live out the purpose statement of WELCA in their daily lives. There are two organized women’s circle groups at St. Paul: the JOY Circle, and the SIS (Sisters in Spirit) Circle. All women are invited to come and participate in the circle of their choice. The circle groups offer Christian fellowship to women of our church as well as many opportunities to serve within St. Paul and beyond.
