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
January, 2019
The new year brings new possibilities, and we get to start over!   First, the thank you part to those who have helped our congregation grow and thrive in 2018.    Thanks to Light Circle for the duties in December, and in January.  Sorry that the choir missed your Holiday Event, but we were fulfilling another duty, and singing at Skaalen.   Thanks also, to all who provided music for their services, and helped with gifts and other opportunities there.   Thanks to those who provided Christmas for residents at Alden estates, and those who delivered Meals on Wheels in December and again this month:

Monday, December 31 Buddy and Beverly Lien
Tuesday,  January 1    Buddy and Beverly Lien
Wednesday, January 2 Marge and Ken Stach
Thursday, January 3    Marge and Ken Stach
Friday,  January 4       Ron Anderson

We do not have a regular meeting scheduled for January, as it is so often cold or snowy and  we don't need to be out sliding around.   If the weather is good, we may have a pin and sew morning to be decided later. Our next regular sewing and meeting will be on the first Thursday in February 7, 2019. In the meantime, stay warm.      
                                
God Bless you ,
Communicator Carolyn
