Overview

Women of the ELCA (or WELCA) is the women's ministry of the church. We meet regularly in small groups called "circles" for Bible study and fellowship. There are also two annual large-group meetings that include a brunch to which all women of the congregation are invited. Circles participate in several local and North Carolina Women of the ELCA retreats, events, and gatherings each year. Our activities include:

  • Participating in Bold Women's Sunday, Ministry Fair, and church work days.
  • Collecting pennies for a purpose determined by the NC Synodical Women's Organization.
  • Raising money to provide scholarships to support a number of local, national, and international organizations.
  • Attending the NC Synodical Women's Organization of the Women of the ELCA gathering held annually at Lenoir-Rhyne University.
  • Acting as hostesses for Advent dinners at Holy Trinity.
  • Assisting Lutheran World Relief by providing quilts, health kits, school kits and the like.
  • Providing financial support to the NC Synodical Women's Organization.
