“WELCA” Women of the ELCA – We are a group of ladies that love to share our interests and ideas about life with each other, and share the love of Christ with the outside world around us. Our circle groups are involved with many service projects, such as, creating newborn kits, school backpack kits, camperships for youth at Camp Vermilion, quilting, prayer shawls, hospital care kits, etc. If you attend the church, you are considered a member, and can join in the meetings and devotion times whenever you are able, and take part in whatever projects you feel called to do. We invite you to join us and share your ideas!
If you need a few resources to get you through the week, click on these links here for devotionals and information to lift your spirits!
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
