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.

Thank You From Luther Elementary!

Thanks to those who came out to Pin and Sew last month. We had a small group, but we did get some quilts done.   Thanks to Peace Circle for serving.   We will meet next on Thursday, April 2nd.   It is Maundy Thursday, but we will be finished early in the afternoon, so you will have time to put the feet up and maybe catch a few zzzs before church at 6 PM.   We welcome anyone who  knows how, or wants to learn to tie the quilts.   There's always much to do.   We begin around 9, break for coffee, of course, and share a pot luck lunch at noon.   This is followed by our business meeting, and Bible Study.   Will will be scheduling a few extra days during the warmer months, to make up for the winter days we had to cancel.   I will try to keep you informed about these dates.    When we do those, we do not include lunch, but some of us go out to lunch when we finish our morning's work.
Thanks to those who delivered Meals on Wheels this month.   We are on duty again June 29th to July 3.   Please let me know if you would be willing to take a day or two of this task.   It's fun, and a godsend to those who need the meals.   And, you will notice, that this is not a job just for women.  We have men helping out, also, and do appreciate all of the help.  
Synodical Women's Biennial Convention is scheduled for June 12 and 13  at Good Shepherd West, near Verona.   Friday evening is the business meeting, and Saturday is for everyone.   There are interesting workshops, and worship is always inspirational with great music.   I will post the registration materials on the bulletin board in Fellowship Hall.   Please consider going.   You'll enjoy it.
Thanks for all you do for East Koshkonong Church.       .     
God Bless you.

September 2014-May 2015:
Transforming Faith and Life

Gather Magazine 2013A new life partner, a new child, a new job, a new home: most of us recognize how our lives are changed by these experiences. In “Transforming Life and Faith” we will consider how our lives and our faith journeys are transformed by the events we experience and the people we meet. In both the Old Testament and New Testament, and especially in Acts of the Apostles, we will read about people who have life-changing experiences: Paul on the road to Damascus, Moses in the wilderness of Midian, Lydia praying by a river in Macedonia, an Ethiopian man traveling from Jerusalem to Gaza. We will watch them turn to and with God as their minds, hearts, and daily lives are altered. And we will reflect on the ways we, too, have been and will be transformed and called by God to serve God’s mission in the world.  Click here for more information.
