Synodical Women’s Organization


The Saint Paul Area Synodical Women's Organization seeks to mobilize women to act boldly in their faith in Jesus Christ.


Purpose Statement:

As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.


Upcoming Events:
