SOS WELCA

OVERVIEW

The Women of Southern Ohio Synod are an affiliate of the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (WELCA). We are a synodical women’s organization and our board plans regular events, workshops, biennial conventions, and other opportunities to bring together the women of Southern Ohio in faith and fellowship. We carry out a multitude of mission projects, such as our Women of the Red Eyes project to help the women in our sister synod of East of Lake Victoria, Tanzania. Read more about the national WELCA organization here.

In Southern Ohio, we have six conferences representing congregations in smaller clusters around the state. These include Central, Cincinnati, Dayton, Northwest, Muskingum, and Scioto conferences. Each conference board holds annual spring and fall gatherings and retreats to bring together our women to worship, fellowship, and unite in mission.
