What is WELCA?

It’s an easy way to say Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The organization includes Lutheran women who gather in over 7,000 locations in the U.S. and the Caribbean, for service, study, advocacy, fellowship and more!


WELCA embraces all kinds of ministries that support the mission of mobilizing women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ. There is a place for you in Women of the ELCA.


WELCA is the women’s ministry organization of the ELCA. It is separately incorporated and is not an auxiliary of the church. It is financially independent and responsible for its own financial affairs. Financial support comes from individual and group offerings and gifts.
