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.

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
April, 2017
We are moving forward on the next batch of quilts for Lutheran World Relief. One really nice top was made by Karly Lewellin, which we displayed in church one Sunday. We have quilts ready for the babies that are expected to be baptized in the next few months, and we gave a quilt to our neighbor, Tony Gausman who lost his house in a fire a few weeks ago. Thanks go to our loyal women who arrive ready to put together, sew, and tie the quilts in the Upper Church basement. We are grateful for the space that we have there, for it means that we can spend our time working instead of setting up and taking down. Next meeting will be on Thursday, April 6, at 9 AM, hosted by Steadfast Circle. Someone is usually there well before 9 with the heat on and the doors open, so come as soon as you can. We'll have a coffee break, and share a pot luck lunch at noon, followed by a business meeting. All are invited to join the activities.

Our next Meals on Wheels delivery schedule is in May, and volunteers are needed for days of May 18,19, and 22 through 26. Please let me know when you would like to help with this at 423-4048, or We are happy to participate in the community project , for it provides needed meals for our elderly folks.

There is a Quilt Faire scheduled for April 29 at Christ Lutheran Church in Stoughton, to benefit Skaalen. We entered our Fun and Done quilt last year, and it created quite a lot of interest. Peggy Luther is the proud owner of this quilt now, as she won the raffle at Christmas. This is an interesting quilt show, and includes lunch and raffles of baskets of interesting and valuable gifts. Plan to attend. You'll see your friends and neighbors there!!!

Thank you again for all you do for the East Koshkonong family.
God Bless you.
Communicator Carolyn

Let’s Knit & Crochet Baby Blankets!
I’m looking for knitters and crocheters to help me make baby blankets for Global Health Ministries. Blankets don’t have to be fancy. They can be just plain knit or crochet. They should be at least 36” x 36”. If you don’t want to make a whole blanket you can make strips or squares and I will put them together. I also have yarn if you need it. As long as the yarn is washable it can be any color. If you have any questions contact Beverly Lien
