Welcome to the website of the NE Minnesota Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), a regional organization within the national (churchwide) Women of the ELCA. Our 136 members’ churches are those of the NE Minnesota Synod. As Women of the ELCA, we are about relationships among the women of our churches, walking together in a faith journey, and working together to make a difference in the lives of those in our communities, in our region, and beyond. As former Presiding Bishop Mark Hanson said about our organization, “Women of the ELCA is a community of faith responding to the needs of others.” Join us at your congregational level!
Our NE MN Synod Women, in partnership with RREAL (Rural Renewable Energy Alliance) are leading the initiative to bring photovoltaics (PV) energy to Phebe Hospital in Liberia.
