If your church leaves the ELCA, the national WELCA office will want the money in the local WELCA account to be sent to them. (see here)
But don’t worry. There is a simple solution to this is. Prior to the second vote of your church to leave the ELCA, give the money in your WELCA account away. One option is to give the money to your congregation and designate it to be given to the local church women’s group. This way you get to decide where the money goes and WELCA’s national organization can not have what is not in the account.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
