Women of the ELCA

 

Purpose Statement
As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.

Women of the ELCA (WELCA)
Our women meet on the first Thursday of the month in September, October, November, January, February, March, April, May and June for sewing in our Sewing Room in the basement of First East Church.  We put together and tie around 80 quilts each year to send to Lutheran World Relief, along with sewing kits, school kits, and soap.  These meeting are open to anyone who would like to help.  Squares usually are available for those who would like to sew tops at home.

We have seven circles which meet monthly for business and Bible Study (this year it is the book of Romans), and which do many of the duties around the church, find ushers and provide flowers for the altar. Circles meet at various times, morning, afternoon or evening,

A book is published each year including all the necessary information about circles and the Women of East Koshkonong. 

Of course our women are also involved in the whole life of the church, including teaching, singing, reading, and leading,  and we also  enjoy meeting for study, food, and  fun.  Join us.

Personal Care Kits, School Kits, Baby Care Kits, and Mission Quilts will be distributed to an estimated 25,000 people. Read the whole story on page 9 of the November newsletter: click here.

Pin & SewPin & Sew Ladies Making Quilts!
Did you know... that not only do the women make quilts for Lutheran World Relief, they also give a quilt to children of EKLC at their Baptism, they also have a supply of quilts to give to those in our community that could use the loving care & warmth of a quilt. The ladies also pray together over the knitted & crocheted shawls for the EKLC Prayer Shawl Ministry. God Bless the faithful women of EKLC sharing your gifts. (Pictures taken by Diane Luginbuhl)

News from the Church Basement Ladies
July, 2019
Greetings from the Church Basement!
Summer is flying by, and we are starting to think about fall already! First, though, thanks for Steadfast Circle for duties in June, and to Peace Circle for July.   We will not have a regular meeting in July, and will do a sewing morning on Thursday, July 18 with no meeting and no lunch.I promised to give you the list of items needed for the school kits for Lutheran World Relief, so this is it! 70 sheet notebooks, ruler, pencil sharpener, blunt scissors, unsharpened pencils, ballpoint pens (no gel ink) boxes of 16 or 24 crayons, and a  2 1/2 inch eraser. Multiples of the notebooks and pens and pencils are needed for the kits, so please be generous with these. Shipping is early in September this year, so we will be packing kits in August.  The best time to buy these things is as soon as they go on sale this summer. Thank you so much for your help with this. Kids in some countries cannot attend school unless they bring their supplies, and we can help with this. There will be a container in the narthex to collect these things.    
Thank you to the loyal Meals on Wheels helpers.   Here is our delivery schedule for July:
Monday, July 8         Judy Rusch
Tuesday, July 9        Don and Eileen Hoehn
Wednesday, July 10  Don and Eileen Hoehn
Thursday, July 11      Ron and Shawn Anderson
