On behalf of the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin Women of the ELCA Synodical Board “Welcome” to our resource page. The Women of the ELCA (W-ELCA) includes Lutheran women who gather for service, study, advocacy, and fellowship. W-ELCA embraces all kinds of ministries that support our mission of mobilizing women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ. There are approximately 75 active W-ELCA church units within the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin. These church women’s groups are overseen by a Synodical Women’s Organization (SWO), an elected board of up to 13 women.
