All of the women of 1st Lutheran Church belong
to the WELCA organization—the Women of the
Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. Each is
invited and encouraged to be an active member.
There are currently 5 circles within our church.
Each circle has a meeting each month which includes
a Bible Study. The circles are responsible
for serving funerals, Sunday morning coffee,
quilting, upkeep in the kitchen and making sure
supplies are on hand as needed. Anyone interested
in joining a circle can contact the church office @ 653-1333
The Prayer Shawl group meets monthly
on the third Thursday at the Senior Center at 1:00 PM
Anyone is who interested in knitting
or crocheting prayer shawls is invited
to join this group.
“Give and it will be given to you,
For the measure you give will be the
measure you give back.”
As a community of women,
created in the image of God,
called to discipleship
in Jesus Christ, and
empowered by the Holy Spirit,
we commit ourselves to grow in faith,
affirm our gifts, support one another
in our callings, engage in ministry
and action, and promote healing
and wholeness in the church, the
society, and the world.
The women’s quilting group meets on the first
Monday and Tuesday of each month at 8:30 am
at the church.
Monday hours are 8:30 to 3:00
Tuesday hours are 8:30 to noon.
We welcome all who are interested in this project to come and join us. For more information contact Georgia Willoughby or Sandy Pipal, or contact the church office.
