St. John's Women

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, the society, and the world.

When the WELCA executive board met (via ZOOM) in early May, there was collective agreement that we could, and should, continue to push forward with Courageous Conversations on ZOOM, and that, as COVID-19 was shining a light on racial disparities in our communities, we should take a closer look at ways to address racism. Little did we know, then, that within days, we would all witness the brutality and senseless murder of George Floyd at the hands of the police right here in Minnesota, and that this would ignite an ever growing outcry across the country and beyond.

So in the midst of an ever changing landscape we are forging ahead with our commitment to provide a platform for understanding systemic racism and promoting anti-racist actions.

“Made In God’s Image”

Join St. John’s Women of the ELCA and Bishop Regina Hassanally of the Southeastern Minnesota Synod, ELCA for a conversation reflecting on the truth that we are all created in the image of God and the ways this tenet of our theology informs our work toward justice for all people.

Prior to her role as bishop she served as pastor at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Goodhue, MN. As bishop she is focused on healthy, resilient leaders and vibrant congregations.
