WELCA Mission Statement

To mobilze women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ.
 
WELCA 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.
 
The WELCA symbol:
 
The symbol - with the cross, water, and white lily - identifies the women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America as CHILDREN OF GOD; baptized, forgiven, adopted into God's family, full of grace and hope in eternal life. It is a reminder of the growth, beautify, and vitality that rise out of that life-giving baptismal water. It is also a reminder of the mission of the church to: "Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." Matthew 28:19
 
Missions
 
Our circles at Clinton Heights Lutheran Church engage in several mission projects each year. Throughout the year we gather pennies for Red Eye (described below) and personal hygiene products for the women of Nancy's Place (the women's shelter at Faith Mission). Our women also sponsor projects like making flood buckets for use by Outreach Ministries in southwestern Ohio, assembling personal care kits for Lutheran World Relief, collecting hats, gloves, scarves and stuffed animals for distribution at the Champion Avenue Food Pantry, organizing sales of fair trade items through SERRV and Lutheran World Relief, assembling school supplies in backpacks for children around the world, and having election day bake sales to benefit the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center, our local settlement house.
