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. ~ WELCA Mission and Purpose

What is WELCA?

It’s an easy way to say Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  WELCA embraces all kinds of ministries that support our mission of mobilizing women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ. We are part of the national churchwide Women of the ELCA and also the Southeastern Women of the ELCA.  At Trinity our activities include monthly circle meetings, our annual Women’s retreat, Oktoberfest Bake Sale, an annual Holiday Auction, annual Advent Dinner, support of Lutheran World Relief Quilt & Kits ministry, hosting a Lenten Dinner and Lessons & Carols Grace Café.  We also send a delegate, plus others who want to attend, to the annual SES Women of the ELCA convention and the Triennial Gathering.  Our 5 Circles have service projects that they support and offer the women of Trinity Bible Study and fellowship time.  If you are a member of Trinity, or a friend of Trinity, you are already a member of WELCA, so come join us!
