The Purpose Statement of the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America is – 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.
Our goal is – As a community of women of the ELCA at St. Paul, through our participation and support of the ministries and programs for the year, our mission is to mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ.
All women of St. Paul are members of WELCA. We offer five different circles (groups) for the women of the church. Each circle meets once a month for bible studies, fellowship, community service and service to St. Paul Lutheran Church. The circles participate in preparing coffee for Sunday worship, Lenten Desserts, feeding the homeless, providing food for Pathways of Hope, Brown Bags for the La Habra Resource Center, Treats for Troops, Community Christmas Card, and many more outreach ministries. Each circle would love to have visitors and new members. If any of the circles appeal to you, please contact the circle leaders listed below to receive more information and a heartfelt invitation to join them at their meetings:
