WELCA Bible Study

WELCA Bible Study at Milwaukie Lutheran 2014 – 2015

Milwaukie Lutheran Church has four Women of the ELCA (WELCA) groups who gather monthly for fellowship and Bible study. We have a long tradition of calling ourselves “Circles” — circles of friendship and spiritual growth, even though we are being pushed to transform our name to “Gather Groups”.

At Milwaukie Lutheran our Circles “Gather” the second week of the month for 1-2 hours depending on the group norm. We follow the Bible study found in “Gather Magazine” provided for us by WELCA. If you do not subscribe to Gather, copies of the upcoming month study can be obtained from the MLCW mail slot outside the church office. All four groups follow the same study.

We invite all women — members, non-members, former members, friends and sisters in Christ, to join any of our groups at any time. How better to strengthen your spiritual faith than to Gather, share, laugh and learn together? We meet at various times to fit busy schedules:

   Naomi — 2nd Tuesday of the month at 10:00 a.m., in the church library

     Elizabeth — 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m., sites vary

     Peace — 2nd Friday of the month at 11:30 a.m., in the church library

     Deborah — 2nd Saturday of the month 10:00-11:00 a.m., in the church library

Please join us to enrich our conversations. You will never be put on the spot to speak or read.  Members, friends, sisters, you are all welcome!

(Women 18-30 yrs. of age, if traditional Bible study groups do not work for you, we are working to develop another spiritual and fellowship connection called Cafe. Watch for more information in the coming months.)
