                VOICES FOR JUSTICE                      was the program for our                    Spring Gathering.  It was a great program and so appropriate for issues facing women today.  The Conference Leaders Committee worked hard to provide our first ever virtual Gathering in April. There were a few challenges, and they overcame every one of them to provide great content while allowing us to be safe at home or in small groups. 
 THANK YOU, Conference Leaders Committee, for bringing us together again after 2 years of uncertainty and presenting such a relevant and thought-provoking program. 
What's New?
The Annual Gathering will be Sept 16 & 17 and it will be virtual for all, except Board Members.  See more information on the Events tab and in the Bulletin.

Some NC SWO Board positions will open up next year. Please consider accepting nomination and help WELCA continue to carry out our mission. 

Have you ever been to Phoenix, AZ? Consider a nomination as a NC Delegate to the Twelfth Triennial Convention in September, 2023. 

Fall Conference Gatherings will be in-person, in October or early November. We are looking forward to gathering again and are looking for host churches.  If your church would like to host the Fall Gathering, please contact  
                           by clicking the link or calling (704) 657-1792. Host churches will provide the location and snacks. The Gathering program will be provided for you.
