WELCA

Our Mission
To Proclaim the love of Jesus Christ, invite others to participate in our faith community and be a blessing to all in work and deed.

All confirmed members of Root Prairie Lutheran are participants of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America and invited to become involved in the program of activities of our local ELCA Women.
 
Women of Root Prairie ELCA are part of the Root River Conference and the Southeastern Minnesota Synod.  Our goal is to mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ.
