December CONNECT Team Update
God’s mission for our CONNECT Team is to grow our church spiritually and emotionally by connecting God’s love and our work.  Our CONNECT Team is up and running!  The above statement is our mission statement. We have been working together to explore our strengths and find ways to build upon them.  The current CONNECT Team includes Jenna Christensen, Gloria Fruit, Cindy Georgeson, Ryan Terland, and Pastor Brenda Lovick.  We are looking to find 2-3 more people to join us on this journey toward growing our congregation and discovering positive momentum for our entire congregation to do God’s ministry together.  If you would be interested in participating in this process, please talk to one of the people on our team.

Sign Up for Pastor Brenda to Visit You! Would you like Pastor Brenda to visit you at home or at work? Signup on the clipboard in the Narthex. She will contact you to arrange a visit. Thank you!

The Upper Church Anniversary: 2017
We will be celebrating the 125th anniversary of the Upper Church next year. Although the formal dedication was in 1893, the building was completed in 1892. One way to acknowledge this anniversary is to look back at the history of the church and focus on its rare unique characteristics. Both the beauty and the historical nature of the building are worthy of many great memories. Because so many current members of this congregation and other people who live in the area have knowledge of the history, we are asking for some help. If you know of a family member or community member who was involved in the design and building this beautiful church, we’d love to hear about it. Please contact the church office if you have stories you would like to share.

East Koshkonong Lutheran Church Cemetery Perpetual Care
We are blessed with dedicated cemetery board members as well as a hardworking grounds keeper. However, there is more that is needed to keep our historic cemetery in good condition. The care of our cemetery is a ministry that needs continuous financial assistance. Please consider making a special donation to help in the care of the Church Cemetery property. Donations should be labeled "EKLC Cemetery Perpetual Care". They can be put in with your Sunday Offering or mailed to the church office at East Koshkonong Lutheran Church, Attn: Cemetery, 454 East Church Rd, Cambridge, WI 53523
