Worship on the Koshkonong Prairie!
September 22, 2019 at 9:30am Worship Service at the Schuster’s Farm, 1326 US Highway 12 & 18 Deerfield (Click here for a flier!)
Join East Koshkonong, West Koshkonong and St. Paul’s Liberty Lutheran Churches for a joint service to celebrate 175 years of worship on the Koshkonong Prairie! Potluck luncheon to follow– please bring a dish to pass. Families are welcome to enjoy Schuster’s Farm after lunch. Wristbands for kids will be available at a special rate in honor of the worship celebration. Visitors welcome! No worship at EKLC. Offering for EKLC will be collected at this joint service.

Pudding Cups for Bluejay Backpacks!
This is a Cambridge school district program that sends easy to prepare foods home with kids in need over long weekends because many of these families do not have adults home to help cook meals. There are approximately 75 kids in the program, so each month 75 sets of 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches/dinners, 2 snacks and 2 cups of fruit/pudding are sent home with each child. Several congregations in the area will be helping to supply this food. EKLC is taking on PUDDING! We need 75 pudding cups each month through May. Please consider donating pudding (nonperishable) or money so that we can support this initiative. You can bring your pudding to church and leave it in the food pantry box.  Money can be tagged with ‘backpacks’ and put in the offering plate or sent to the church office.

EKLC Now Has Online Giving!
You may make a secure offering/donation to EKLC by following the directions on the GIVE PLUS card in the Church pews. On the back of this card are directions. All donations are secured through Vanco. If you'd like to place something in the offering plate after making an online donation, you may put the reusable GIFT PLUS card in the plate. Thank you for your generous offering in this way! 

New Financial Secretary
We are happy to welcome member Judy Lund into the position of Financial Secretary.  We are excited to have Judy in this position, and hope you all will extend a warm welcome to her in this important role with EKLC. Moving forward, please direct your financial/offering questions to Judy.
