WELCA - NC Women of the ELCA: is a Community of Women . . . with varied gifts and talents, of different age groups and occupations, from different backgrounds but all with the same purposes... to grow in faith, to affirm our gifts, to support one another in our callings, to engage in ministry and action and to promote healing and wholeness. We, the NC Women of the ELCA, strive to fulfill our goals and purposes by conducting programs and projects throughout the year. We offer many occasions for fellowship and we have a myriad of ongoing opportunities for ministry. We encourage and invite all women to join a WELCA group. We currently have three active circles meeting at different times throughout the month.
