What does discipleship mean to you? Women of the ELCA participants are active disciples in many ways.

dis·ci·ple·ship noun [di-ˈsī-pəlˈship]

  • a: discipleship is a lifelong journey of living out and spreading the good news of Jesus Christ.
  • b: disciples are followers of Jesus who are intent on carrying out the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19–20) and the Great Command (Acts 1:8).

At WELCA, participants practice seven marks of discipleship: praying, studying, worshiping, inviting, encouraging, serving, and giving. Whether it be making quilts and health and school kits for Lutheran World Relief or studying the Bible together, or assisting in worship, they grow in faith and share what they’ve learned with friends and neighbors.
