"Women Helping Others"
The W.H.O. Group is an ecumenical outreach ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church, ELCA, New Era, MI. Our purpose is to provide Christian care and comfort to the members of Trinity Lutheran Church, as well as those in our community who are in need. Our group is under the umbrella of the Outreach Ministry. We meet when we have an event to work on or when our ministry needs us.
We are not supported by the general budget of TLC, but fund our ministry through various fundraisers, mini-grants from the TLC Endowment Fund and other contributions.
