WOMEN OF THE ELCA (WELCA)
Holy Trinity is blessed to have a lively, active WELCA group
that contributes significantly to the life of the church.
Here at Holy Trinity, the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America strives to enhance the spiritual life of its members as it commits to projects and activities that benefit the church and the broader community. It is open to women of all ages who are friends or members of Holy Trinity.
WELCA meets the second Tuesday of the month in the Fellowship Hall at 1 p.m. Fellowship is enjoyed throughout the afternoon that starts with dessert provided by our hostess of the month and is followed by the Bible Study led by Pastor Raabe taken from Gather, the magazine of the Women of the ELCA. The business portion of our meeting is usually last. During the year, we vary the routine by starting our meetings with a potluck lunch in February and December and a summer potluck picnic. In April, it’s “out for lunch” when we gather at a local restaurant for a mostly social meeting. Please join us at one of our meetings and consider becoming a member!
Among its many ministries, members of WELCA prepare quilts throughout the year (pictured above) for shipment through Lutheran World Relief to those in need around the world . They also purchase supplies for 15 school kits that are distributed to children around the world by Lutheran World Relief, and sew some of the backpacks that hold the school supplies.
