OSL Women of the ELCA
We Are Called!
Nancy Krueger

Gather Magazine’s current Bible study is “We Are Called!” I find this an interesting title as I am the new WELCA president for the next two years. What makes us take on such a role? How are we called to take on a new challenge? I hope that as you look at the Bible study in the following months, you examine in yourself what Jesus is calling you to do in your life and the lives of those around you. Below are some opportunities for you to participate in if you are feeling the call.

February Bible Study: “We Are Called!” by Kathryn A. Kleinhans. Theme Verses: 1 Samuel 3:1–10, Isaiah 6:1–8, 2 Kings 22:8–20, Judges 4 and 5, Jeremiah 1:1–8 (source: gathermagazine.org).

Prayer: Gracious God, open our minds and our hearts to your word that we may learn together and grow in faith. Open our mouths to your word that we may share the good news of Jesus Christ with everyone that we meet. Open our arms to your word that we may show our faith through our actions. Amen.

2020 Unit Wide Mission Projects: “Just Love” is the theme of the triennial conference in Arizona this year. This also is our theme for the year. We will continue to support the groups that we have supported in the past: Project CAR, WestSide Lutheran, Lutherans Outdoors in South Dakota, USD Luther Center, St. Dysmas, Heartland House, Union Gospel Mission, University Lutheran Center, and Prison Congregations of America. We will continue to support our partnership with Susan B. Anthony Elementary, and hope to grow that relationship this year. We are also looking at helping with monetary contributions for outfitting a new kitchen in the Friendship Room. Please remember these groups when considering your offerings for the year.

WELCA Board Members: Nancy Krueger, President; open, Vice President; Karen Zimbeck, Secretary; Lori Tendler, Treasurer; Sherry Roth, Mission Action; Jodie Nielsen, Advisor
