Volunteer Opportunities

The pro-life cause needs you right now! Lives hang in the balance. And that means there’s room for you.*

Volunteers are the heart of WELS Lutherans for Life. Each month volunteers from area churches, agreeing on the essentials of faith and working in unity, contribute numerous hours of service. We are eager to discuss opportunities that fit your unique, God-given gifts.
