March 2024

Bold Women's Day is Sunday, March 3!

In Women of the ELCA, we're all about acting boldly on our faith in Jesus Christ. And at least once a year we celebrate that boldness, whether it's a quiet and persistent bold or a loud and brash bold. How will you celebrate Bold Women's Day on March 3?

We've got lots of resources to consider, from FB cover photos to a brand new litany to program ideas. You can celebrate in community or in your daily devotion.

What's important is celebrating boldness, so if March 3 doesn't work for you, pick another date!

March devotion: What seeds are you scattering?

This Lent, may you pray about the seeds you are scattering. Ask God to use your gifts of time, service, and talents to bless the people before you. How might your congregational unit of Women of the ELCA scatter seeds together?
