WELCA "Women of the ELCA"
All the women that attend Messiah are welcome to be a part of any of our women’s ministries. We have a lot going on and always hope new faces will join us in our groups. One such group is the Bible Study circle groups that meet each month for Bible study, prayer, caring, sharing and refreshments. For more information contact Dottie McIntyre - Membership Chairperson at (317) 852-2713.
