Women of the ELCA is committed to ending human trafficking

Help us engage and empower young Lutherans at our exhibit at the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering this summer.



Our Purpose Statement

“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.”

New program year

Do you want to engage more women?

It’s almost time to plan for the new program year! Take the opportunity to evaluate your model for mission as you help women live out our 2017 triennial gathering theme of All Anew. Consider the questions: How do we get started? What can we do to inspire more women to become involved in the organization we love? How can we make a difference together?

Let us pray

Gather, the magazine of Women of the ELCA, offers its three-session summer Bible studies for free. This summer Gather’s three-part Bible study, “Let us pray,” by Anna Madsen explores what happens when we pray. Is there right or wrong way to pray? Do we pray for God’s benefit or our own?

Gather is published 10 times a year with combined issues in January/February and July/August. A print subscription is $19.95 a year. Digital access (computer, iPad, Android) is free to print subscribers. For more information, or to subscribe by phone, call 1-844-409-0576.
