ministries, including programs for children in crisis; anti-racism
education; funds for the Women of the ELCA scholarship committee,
which helps women all over the country complete their higher
education, change careers or grow in leadership; Lutheran World
Relief; Lutheran Disaster Response; World Day of Prayer; and
ministries of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, such as
World Hunger and Global Mission.
Women will conduct the morning
