Purpose statement of the Women of the ELCA:
As a community of women created in the image of God, called to the 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, and society, and the world.
