W.E.L.C.A. stands for Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. This means all women of Augustana, young and old, are members of W.E.L.C.A. We have two groups at the present time. Rhoda group meets the first Wednesday morning of the month and Lydia Martha group meets the first Thursday evening of the month. It is a great time for fellowship and an interesting Bible study led by Pastor Chuck.

On occasion we prepare and host meals. Examples are for the past few years the USD choir has been fed by W.E.L.C.A., as well as bus tours, and funerals.

In December the Lucia Festival is a big event. W.E.L.C.A. is in charge but needs many hands to make it a successful evening.

Again, let me say we would love to have you as part of this organization. If interested please contact Marian Erickson, President of W.E.L.C.A., 258-6672 or Pastor Chuck.
