The Teen Suicide Prevention Resolution

The Teen Suicide Prevention resolution that SCWELCA approved last year at our Convention was also passed at the Triennial convention in September, 2023.

Suicide Prevention and Hope with researcher and professor Pamela Morris-Perez

Pamela Morris-Perez: Suicide Prevention and Hope - Kate Bowler. Dr. Pamela Morris-Perez is someone who approaches the subject of suicide among young adults with the heart of a grieving mom and the mind of a professor and practitioner who wants to teach us how we can help. This is such an important conversation on how we can help prevent adolescent suicide.

Please go to the Projects/Resource page for more information.


Ready to REVITALIZE your unit or START a one in your congregation?

SC WELCA has put together a TOOL for you to use to help you do just that. The link below is copy of a survey to use in your own congregation.

  1. Hand this out on a Sunday to all women attending your service(s). 

  2. Set out a basket or something to collect them. 

  3. Encourage the women to prayerfully consider their answers. 

  4. Then one or two of you can tabulate the results and compare those preferences to your current activities.  

This will work for starting a unit or revamping the one you have.  Use our online Handbook for other ideas and the few requirements needed to be considered an active unit. Be open to great input from your ladies and the new ideas to use for fellowship, service and Bible Study. 

Any Board member will be happy to assist in your planning if needed.
