2017 Women's Retreat

As Women of the ELCA, we would like to welcome you to SOTH. We hope that you will become involved in the various organizations our church has to offer you. One of those organizations is the W-ELCA. As a community of women, 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, in the community, in the society, and in the world. Meetings are held six times a year: February, March, May, September, October, and December. We meet the second Wednesday of these months, beginning with a light lunch at 12 noon, followed by a brief program, and a business meeting.

A number of small units of the W-ELCA offer these opportunities:
  • December holiday bake sale
  • Easter week Senior Citizen dinner
  • Quilting for Lutheran World Relief (LWR)
  • Preparing baby care, fabric, school kits, and personal care kits for LWR
  • Quilting for graduating high school seniors
  • Knitting/crocheting prayer shawls
  • Sarah Circle Bible study
  • Altar Guild
Other opportunities are listed in the weekly bulletin servant sheet.

All Women of the ELCA, Shepherd of the Hill, are assigned to one of four work groups. You may be called upon to furnish and/or serve food at events such as funerals, weddings or other church dinners. Usually two work groups are assigned for each event. Food donations/requests may be one of these-cake, cupcakes, bars, Jell-O, or macaroni salad.
