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
September, 2019
It's been a busy summer, and we will be getting back to our regular meeting schedule in September.   Our next meeting will be on Thursday, September 5, with Pin and Sew and maybe some final Lutheran World Relief packing beginning at 8 AM.  We'll share a pot luck lunch at noon, and then have our business meeting, hosted by Light Circle this month.     

Thanks to Joy Circle for duties in August, a month that went by so fast we hardly got settled! We had a great time together at the Fireside in late July, and there were several events in August which included the community.  
The historical showcase looks wonderful, thanks to Johnnie and most likely a few others.Thanks to all who donated items for the LWR kits and money for shipping.   We can only imagine how much this means to  folks around the world who receive them. Shipping day is September 14, and thanks to Heidi and her family who will again be taking our donations to the rail yard in Madison.

We have Meals on Wheels delivery again in October, so if you're not on the schedule yet, please contact me speedystoutknitter@gmail.com or 608-669-4249   Thanks for your help.

Happy Fall.     
God Bless you.
