Greetings from your new President. I am excited for the opportunity to work with the Women of Western Iowa and the ELCA Churchwide. As Women of Faith we can work together in so many ways
We have included the agenda and registration information on the Tri-Synod Retreat to be held October 4-5 at Bethesda Lutheran in Ames. This is a great opportunity for fellowship with women from all over the state.
More information and registration forms for the Women of the ELCA, 11th Triennial Convention and Gathering in Phoenix will be available in September, check the Women of the ELCA website to subscribe to the Bold Connections newsletter, and keep up to date on the happenings of the Women of the ELCA. If you are interested in attending the Gathering, please let us know.
I look forward to attending as many cluster events as possible in the coming year, if you have other events you would like a board member to attend please let us know. We are your board and look forward to working with all of you.
“Every day is a new beginning, take a deep breath, smile, & start again.”

Just love' Gathering 2020
..logo and theme remind us that we are all part of one body.
Following Jesus is messy. Loving one another is justice. We are not perfect,
we are often broken, sometimes we don’t fit. Sometimes our edges are
rough—but we are one body in Christ.
You can learn about the artist and event here!
We invite you to this life-changing event. Come. Be inspired. July 16-20, 2020
Then begin living out your faith in new and invigorating ways. Phoenix, Arizona
