Women of the ELCA

The Bethel Women of the ELCA is and active group that supports the services of our church and our community.

The women of Bethel also have a worldwide outreach making quilts and assembling health kits for Lutheran Word Relief. Hundreds of quilts and health kits have been distributed world wide helping the less fortunate because of our ladies.

The women are also involved in many fundraisers throughout the year, including our annual garage sale.

The ladies circles, Martha and Lois, provide fellowship, spiritual growth and enrichment for all who participate. These groups meet monthly for Bible Study and fellowship.
