To mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ.
As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit, 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, society, and the world.
Activities of the Kountze Women of the ELCA (WELCA) include:
- Monthly circle meetings for Bible study and fellowship
- Serving funeral lunches, weddings, anniversaries and other special events
