The Women of the ELCA (WELCA) is an active organization within our church that supports women to act bodly in their faith in Jesus Christ. WELCA is represented at the congregational, synodical, and churchwide level.
Women at St. Mark participate in monthly Bible Studies using the “Gather”‘ magazine which is a WELCA publication. They also participate with other women on the synodical and national levels in mission projects, meetings, workshops, and gatherings.
