Dear Friends,


Our thoughts and prayers go out to all who have been affected by this unprecedented event.  To the healthcare workers, local communities and everyone else that are dealing directly to contain the virus, please know that your efforts are appreciated.  To those that are ill, or those that have lost loved ones, we pray that our gracious God will wrap his loving arms around you and bring you His peace.


Given the impact of COVID-19, the decision has been made to cancel all Women of the ELCA events scheduled for the month of April.  This includes all Days of Renewal and our Biennial Convention/Gathering.  As of now, the Triennial events are still scheduled.  Information regarding Triennial can be found at welca.org [1].

Regarding our convention/gathering - preliminary considerations include rescheduling the event later this fall, or, forgo the gathering and conduct the business portion via an electronic option.  Like everyone else, we will continue our contacts with local health officials and monitor updates from the World Health Organization, CDC and others.


I know these are unsettling times; however, lets not forget that it is through all of our collective efforts that we can reduce the risk to one another.  Let us show compassion to our neighbors.  Let us do what we are able to do to help those that are most vulnerable.  Let us walk like Jesus.


Let us love.  Prayerfully,


Lori Wells, SWO President

NW Wisconsin Synod

Psalm 34:4 - I sought the Lord and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears.
