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
November2018
Thank you to Peace Circle for duties in October, and to Joy Circle for November.

Thank you to the Confirmation class for helping us pack the quilts and kits for Lutheran World Relief, and to Heidi and her crew for transporting our offerings to the rail yard in Madison.Thank you, also to those who contributed to the shipping costs. I think we may have covered the cost of shipping our offerings. Jane will have a complete record of what we shipped in the annual report. We did very well this year. 

Thanks to all who donated, helped, packed, prayed, or in any way contributed to our mission work. We began again the other day, to make quilts to fill up those now empty shelves in the storage room.     

The Fireside Christian Concert was a good event. The choice has been made for next year's concert, it will be the Ball Brothers, in July. Sue will let us know when we need to get this on calendars and cover our ticket costs.
    
Please see the information on lefse making in this newsletter. Come if you can. bring  folks of other generations, sign up on the sheet in the narthex. It will be another great day.   

Our next meeting will be a Pin and Sew Day on Thursday, November 1, beginning at 8 AM or whenever you get there. Joy Circle will be our hosts. Come even if you do not consider yourself to be an expert seamster or quilter. We'll find you a job! 

We are church of the month at Skaalen in December.   What can you do to help out there?  Wilma will have a schedule of the things we are asked to do. Please sign up and show up for activities to help the residents . 

Our next Meals on Wheels gig is scheduled to start on December 24th-Christmas Eve. I'll need dedicated deliverers for those first 2 days, as some of us will be cooking! We'll deliver weekdays from then till January 4th. If you want a certain day, let me know  soon before it is taken. Contact me at   lienfarm2@netwurx.net   or 608-669-4249.

God Bless our East Koshkonong family for all you do.

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
