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.
Gather MagazineRead. Connect. Grow.
Our new URL,, is not only shorter and easier to remember it also reflects Women of the ELCA's mission statement. Women of the the ELCA, the women's organization of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, creates and publishes every issue of Café.


Gather, the magazine of Women of the ELCA, offers a mix of articles, theological reflections, devotions, and stories of comfort and challenge that help readers grow in faith and engage in ministry and action. Gather is published 10 times a year with combined issues in January/February; July/August.

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)

How We Gather
Taking a look at EKLC Circles
EKLC has four circles who meet in different ways and help to make sure that the church runs smoothly. If you are interested in joining a specific circle, or just one in general, contact the WELCA communicator Carolyn Lien: (

News from the Church Basement Ladies
December, 2019
Advent greetings from the church basement!
Another year almost in the books? Time to thank all of you for your help on projects we have worked on in the basement and elsewhere. Thanks to the circles, who are getting smaller and more elderly!!! for taking care of the many details we forget need attention. Thanks to all who have ushered, greeted, read, and assisted in any way for worship. If you have interest in joining the ranks of any of the opportunities for service, please use the insert from the Sunday bulletin and indicate what you would be willing to do. And thank you.

Thanks to Peace Circle for duties in November, and to Joy Circle who will take care of December, and to Light Circle who will be supervising the decorating of the tree in the sanctuary.

Thank you to all who make yourselves available to serve at funerals. This is an important service, much appreciated by the recipients.

Joy Circle will host a special coffee after service on December 1 as our Christmas event. All are invited. This year's quilt will be raffled off at that time, so be sure to get tickets by then. It's hanging in Friendship Hall as we speak, so if you've appreciated the way it looks, get your chances to win it!!!

There will be a meeting of representatives from each circle after service on December 8 to designate our Christmas gifts.

Our next Meals on Wheels work is scheduled on week-days from January 20 to 31. Please let me know when you are able to take a day or two. or 608-669-4249 Thank you for your loving service to shutins.

There will be no regular meetings with sewing in December or January. We may schedule some morning sewing and will let you know about those dates.

Blessed Christmas to you all.
