Providing WELS Synod Christian men fellowship while exercising charity, service and personal growth.

WELSMEN is a lay organization for men in fellowship with the Wisconsin Lutheran Synod (WELS). We meet monthly to provide opportunities for the exercise of Christian fellowship, charity, service and personal growth.

We are always looking for new members.
If interested, come join us for an event, typically the 2nd Tuesday of every month.
