Church Council Retreat

Piggly WigglyDid you know…
Did you know that Cambridge Piggly Wiggly gives money to EKLC for members shopping at their store??? Here’s how it works…This program allows nonprofit organizations to raise money to be used however they see fit. Individuals collect their receipts from the Cambridge Piggly Wiggly (must be Cambridge store) throughout the year and turn them in to EKLC in the narthex. Sue Repyak, WELCA Treasurer for EKLC, tally’s the receipts for a 1 percent rebate. The checks are written twice a year, in January and July, for all receipts turned in during the previous six months. It adds up! So…bring in those Cambridge Piggly Wiggly receipts!! Thank you Sue for your dedication to this special ministry!

Please Help
It takes a lot of work to keep East Koshkonong Lutheran Church looking and running the way we all want it to. Two lists are located on the table in the council room (located across the hall from the church office). The Jobs List contains items to be cleaned, repaired, replaced, etc. The Jobs Completed List contains items that have been completed and by whom. Please help us move items from the Jobs List to the Jobs Completed List with your time, talent and resources as you are able. Add items that need to be done to the Jobs List so others know of them. Thank you for all your support!

EKLC is Gathering Supplies for LWR School Kits
(Lutheran World Relief)
Education is important for any community, especially where poverty or disaster has limited the options for young people to reach their potential. School Kits contain essential supplies to help children-and in some cases, adults-continue learning despite the hardships they face. And that learning leads to a better life for them, their families and their communities.


There is a bin in the narthex for collection of school supplies for the kits.   Please pick up any of these things when they go on sale soon. We need:

Spiral notebooks (70 count, wide or college-ruled)
Pencils (unsharpened #2)
Pens (no gel ink)
Crayons (16 or 24 count)
Pink erasers (2 1/2 inch)
Rulers (30 centimeter)
Pencil sharpeners
Blunt scissors 


Just bring in any of these things that you can, and we will put them together later closer to the shipping day.  


Visiting Our Members
Sunday School Children
In February, the Sunday school children made a list of things that made them smile to pack in bags full of joy for our home bound members. The contents included a mug, hot cocoa mix, coffee, donuts, squish balls, Chocolate bars, plastic necklace, caramel candies, banana and a note and pictured colored by our students. These bags were then hand delivered to the dozen members from Edgerton, Cambridge, Fort Atkinson, Watertown and Whitewater. The bags worked and brought a lot of joy to many different lives last month.
