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
October, 2019
The first couple of weeks of September were busy ones, Thank you for all of the food donated, help given, and serving done for the Community Café and other needed events. It is always gratifying to know that when help is needed, help is forthcoming!

Thanks to Light Circle for serving duties in September and to Stead-fast Circle for October. Thanks to the folks who are working on the water at the Upper Church. We spent a lot of time there without water, and we appreciate being able to have lunch there again. (And other things). Thanks to those who packed and prepared our donations for Lutheran World Relief, and to those who donated items for the kits, or money to pay some of the shipping costs. If you purchased school supplies and didn't get them to church in time, please bring them anyway. We will save them for next year. I don't have the numbers of items shipped as I write this, but they will be available at some point.

Our next Pin and Sew is Scheduled for October 3 at 8 AM, with pot luck lunch and business meeting . A representative of each circle would be helpful as we will be planning for 2020!!!

There are several events planned at Skaalen this month. October 5 Skaalen Craft Fair, October 15 Fall Festival, and October 29 Skaalen Auxilary meeting (we are responsible for the program, and Wilma has Judy Rusch on board for a sing along).All are wel-come to participate in each of these events.
