Women of the ELCA---


Coffee and conversation, purposeful projects, meaningful contribution, close friendships and joy-filled time together --- this is WELCA!  


The women of St. James Lutheran Church meet regularly together and have a fun time while making a substantial contribution to vital projects that support our local, regional and even global neighbors!  

There are so many ways to become involved in WELCA, but here are just a few:


  • join one of the women's "circles"--the Deborah Circle or the Esther Circle

  • help with the local Community Food Pantry monthly

  • support fundraising, collect items and contribute financially to the Lutheran Social Services

  • extend Thrivent dollars to raise funds which support mission work, parish nurses, youth events, Special Olympics

  • prepare and serve free meals to the local community in need, every month (at Dinner Belle) and annually at the Thanksgiving Dinner

  • provide meals for funerals

  • pray regularly for those experiencing illness, grief or other needs

  • send cards and create “cheer baskets” for people who need to know that they are loved

  • contribute financially to a wide variety of local organizations including Lutheran Social Services, Lutheran Outdoors and others.
