(Also know as WELCA)

Our local membership of the Women’s Organization of the ELCA. Our mission is to mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ. Women enjoy fellowship while working for a common purpose. 

Lord of Life’s WELCA group is active through out the year, sponsoring events like the Valentine candy sale; spring brunch; Advent brunch, and, of course, the ever popular annual lefse sale! WELCA also works on various service projects throughout the year.

Learn More about 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. 


Women of the ELCA connects with participants in many ways. There are magazines, e-zines, e-newsletters, and paper newsletters to tell others how the organization (and our group at Lord of Life) is acting boldly on our faith in Jesus Christ.
