Women of ELCA (WELCA)

Grace women are members of WELCA, which is the easier way to say the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  We meet for service, for Bible study, to pray, for advocacy and fellowship.  Our mission is to mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ. We are a part of the Central/Southern Illinois Synod Women of the ELCA and the churchwide women’s organization. Please contact Pat Casper at for questions.
