The Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (WELCA) provides rewarding opportunities for all women of St. Stephen’s to work together, pray together, learn together, serve together and support each other in their faith.
Five WELCA Circles promote Christian fellowship among women of all ages here at St. Stephen’s, offer opportunities for learning through devotions, and Bible studies and for serving the church, community, state and national WELCA missions. Some of our projects include serving bereavement meals for families of church members, supporting local women and children’s shelters, ELCA missions in Tanzania and the Lutheran Disaster Response Fund.
There is a Circle to fit the needs and interests of all women here at St. Stephen’s. Day and evening meetings are available and meetings are held at restaurants, at the church or in members’ homes.
Contact Suzanne Swaffield at 803-606-5683 for more information if you are interested in being part of one of our WELCA circles.
