WELCA

Laura Mitchell

Welca does many projects to help the World, Country, State, Community as well as our Congregation. We support the Synod with donations from our free will offerings at each meeting. Also, from the offering we help fund a Thanksgiving dinner through Women’s Safe House in Kingsport. We also support other various charities throughout the year.

The primary work of Welca is to provide Health Care Kits to Lutheran World Relief. In 2019 we assembled 226 kits. Our congregation helps support our ministry by donating items for our Health Care Kits. Each kit includes a toothbrush, dark colored bath towel, two Bath size bars of soap, a pair of large (toenail) clippers, and a wide tooth comb.

The Virginia Currens Circle is a Guild of long standing at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. Acting as WELCA (Women of the ELCA), before the pandemic the group met the second Monday of each month at 1:00 PM in the Gathering Room of the church. The meeting would open with a prayer, followed by a short program or devotional, and end with fellowship and refreshments. Four times a year we would have a work meeting where we assemble the Health care kits.  In place of our regular meeting and program, in August we have an “indoor” picnic and in December we meet for our Christmas luncheon.

Join us for a time of fellowship and an opportunity to help others!

There is a display table in the Gathering Room regarding the World Relief Kits that the ladies of WELCA put together-

 as well as some of the other projects that we Support such as -

  • The KIngsport Battered  Women's Safe House Thanksgiving Dinner.
  • Greeting Cards for local area residents in care centers.
  • Aluminum pull tabs collected to benefit the Tri-Cities Ronald McDonald House
