Mission Statement of Women of the ELCA
To mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ


Purpose Statement of Women of the ELCA
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.


ZWELCA is the body of all female members of Zumbro Lutheran Church. Some of those members have chosen to be organized into circles, self selected clusters of members who bond together in Christian love, who help to bear each other's burden, while sharing Bible studies, opportunities for food, fellowship, social activities, and community service.

Our journey of faith leads us to build bridges of understanding and peace, to reach out with compassion, and to share the hope of Jesus.
