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.

LWR: Where 2016 Donations Went
Dear Friends at East Koshkonong Lutheran Church,
Greetings from Lutheran World Relief! We’re so thankful for your partnership, and for your energy and enthusiasm for this ministry.

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.

Thank You From Luther Elementary!

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
October, 2017
So summer's over already? I'm so sorry to hear that! We are kicking into gear for fall and winter, I'm afraid. Thanks go to Peace Circle, who served us in September, and to Joy Circle who will take over October. Thanks to Christy, who made a whole lot of quilt tops, and to all those who have made quilts, donated supplies, and helped to make and pack and transport quilts and kits for Lutheran World Relief. They are being delivered to the train yard early in October,( thanks Heidi) and we are starting on next year's gifts. If you really meant to help, but think you missed the opportunity, we could use money for shipping. This is expensive, and we don't always give enough to cover our shipping costs. Sue Repyak is our treasurer, and she would be glad to accept donations.


Thanks to Diane Luginbuhl, who represented us at our Synodical Biennial Convention in September. It's important to have someone there to vote, and bring us back information.

Thanks to all who are saving and turning in receipts from Piggly Wiggly. This is a great gift from the owners of the store, and helps our Women of the ELCA in funding for missions. We only get a refund from receipts that used the Rewards Card, so remember that when at the store, and when turning in the receipts.

Thank you to my loyal Meals on Wheels deliverers. Our next gig is scheduled for weekdays from November 27 to December 8. Let me know when you would like to help in this new timeframe. Contact me at lienfarm2@netwurx.net or 423-4048.

Our next pin and sew will be on Thursday, October 5, with Joy Circle hosting. We start at 8 AM (come anytime after that ), break for coffee, and share a potluck lunch. Our business meeting will take place after lunch, around 12:45 or so, and we will be planning for 2018, so we need a representative from each circle present to have input in scheduling. Thank you all for your help.

God Bless you all.
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
