A God who shows up

Holiday homecomings are not joyful for some. God is still with us.



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.”

Thankofferings support all the work behind the scenes of Women of the ELCA, like our presence at the ELCA Youth Gathering, where these two young women learned about human trafficking. You can also download the 2018-2019 Thankoffering Service.
