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.

What's In A Name?
Café is an electronic magazine for young women who want to build Community, participate in Advocacy, strengthen Faith, and strive toward Enlightenment (CAFE!). It incorporates a Lutheran perspective for women of Christian faith or simply for any woman who is interested in how faith can relate to the issues that women face today.

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
December, 2018
Happy Thanksgiving, whether you receive this before or after the designated day.   We are always thankful for the blessings of God.

Thanks to Joy Circle for serving duties in November, and to Light Circle for December.   Thanks to Marilyn Gunderson for organizing the lefse making, and to all those who showed up to help, as well as those who bought the finished product.     Thanks to Marilyn  G and Sue Repyak who organized and carried out the latest Fun and Done Quilt, to those who made the strips, and to those who purchased a chance to win it.   This money is used by the Stewardship Committee to keep the quilt and kit ministry supplied with needed materials.

Thanks to all of our volunteers here at East, and to the schedulers who get us organized into teams of helpers at worship.    Please let us know (there's a form in the Sunday service folder to volunteer your time) how you would like to help.

Thanks to my loyal Meals on Wheels delivery people.  Here is our next delivery schedule.   Special thanks to you, because there are two holidays in here, and it takes great dedication to work those days.
