This is the place to be for current news on Pacifica Women of the ELCA and women in the global community.
Our focus for this year is Act Boldly and that is what we strive to do. You will find ideas for acting boldly and possible outcomes of acting on Jesus Christ's direction to help us to Act Boldly.
Blessings to my faithful sisters in Christ,
What a wonderful community of women has gathered together in the name of Christ! My prayers are overflowing with thanksgiving for your faithful service and ministry. May this time together inspire you, fulfill you and encourage you to continue to live out our purpose statement.
This organization has done some amazing things over the years. As a community of women we have provided services such as anti-racism training, addressing issues involving domestic violence and commercial sexual exploitation and human trafficking.
We also support families with special needs. And we do this not only in our churches and communities, but all over the world. What a testament of discipleship in Jesus Christ!
During your time together I would like you to consider these two questions: why am I a member of Women of the ELCA? What can I do to ensure the ministry of this amazing organization will continue on to the next generation? We have accomplished so much, but there is still much work that needs to be done.
My representative who is attending your convention is excited and looks forward to speaking with each of you. She would love to hear about what is happening in your congregational units and your synodical organization. Please feel free to share your joys and your concerns with her as well.
The churchwide board and staff are here for you and are willing to assist in anything you need. You are bold and faithful women of the ELCA and I thank God for each and every one of you!
Blessings to you!
President, 2017-2020 triennium
